License Revocation and Administrative Concerns
If you have been charged with drunk driving, it is important to know that an ALR license suspension is automatic unless a hearing to challenge the suspension is requested within fifteen days after the notice of suspension on a Department of Public Safety approved form. Do not delay as this notice is usually provided on the day of the arrest for DWI. Take action as soon as possible by seeking legal counsel to explore all of your viable options.
