UTAH DLD HEARINGS DEFENSE ATTORNEY
In Utah, a DLD hearing is a crucial part of any DUI (driving under the influence) case. You have 10 days to schedule a hearing with the Drivers License Division (DLD) of the Utah Department of Motor Vehicles. Your Utah DUI attorney can schedule this hearing for you and can represent you during the hearing so you can get the best result possible. If you do not act quickly and schedule this hearing, your driver’s license will be automatically suspended 30 days after your arrest.
Only the Department of Motor Vehicles has the right to suspend or revoke your driver’s license, and in the case of DUI, this will be because of an unsuccessful DLD hearing or a criminal conviction for driving under the influence. Losing the right to drive means that you will be unable to drive anywhere, a privilege that many take for granted. You will have to rely on public transportation, friends, or family in order to get to work, school, or even the grocery store or doctor’s office. This is why it is so important to work with a skilled Utah DUI lawyer.
