Driver’s License Hearings in Kansas

Need an attorney for a driver’s license hearing in Kansas?

When you are stopped by law enforcement in Kansas on a suspicion of driving under the influence, you will be asked to submit to a breath test to determine your blood alcohol concentration (BAC). If your BAC is at or above the legal limit of 0.08% or if you refuse to take a breath or blood test, your license will be confiscated by the attending police officer.

You will be issued a fourteen-day driving permit along with instructions on how to apply for a driver's license hearing. You will have fourteen days to request a hearing or your license will automatically be suspended. If you request a hearing within the time frame, your permit will be extended until your DUI case has been resolved.

What happens at the hearing?

At the hearing, the issues that will be taken up include whether there was reasonable cause for the police officer to arrest you for a DUI and what the breath test results were or whether you refused to submit to a test. If the hearing officer rules against you, you will lose your license, followed by a period in which you will be required to install and use an ignition interlock device in your vehicle. As of July 1, 2011, license suspensions range from thirty days to one year with six months to several years of being required to drive only with an ignition interlock device. If you refused to take a breath test, your license suspension will extend for one year, followed by a year to several years of the ignition interlock device.

As of July 1, 2011, if your license has been suspended, you may be able to obtain a hardship license using an ignition interlock device within forty-five days in order to drive to work, school, and alcohol classes. In any Kansas DUI case, you should have the benefit and advantage of a competent Kansas DUI attorney, such as Mr. Schanker. His firm offers a free consultation to help you get started.
