Time is of the Essence Because Your license is at Risk

  • After a DUI arrest, the officer must notify the department of licensing so that they may note the DUI on your driving record.

  • DOL will then mail you a letter telling you the date you must stop driving.

  • There are things you can do to keep driving, but time limits apply.

  • For example, you may request a telephonic hearing to contest the license suspension or revocation, but you must have that postmarked within 7 days of your arrest.

  • Alternatively, you may apply for a temporary restricted license, otherwise known as an Ignition Interlock License, but not until 30 days have passed from your arrest.

  • The road to keeping you driving is full of obstacles, but we know the rules and can confidently lead the way to keep you driving legally.

DUI is a serious crime in the state of Washington.

If you are found guilty of driving under the influence, you face:

  • Mandatory jail time–up to 364 days
  • Mandatory costly fines and assessments, averaging in the thousands of dollars
  • Suspension or revocation of your driver’s license
  • Ignition interlock device requirement for at least a year at your expense
  • Chemical dependency assessment required; court-mandated treatment if needed
  • Up to 5 years of probation

A DUI conviction will remain on your record for your entire life–it cannot be vacated or expunged.

  • If anyone checks your background, they will know you were found guilty of drunk driving.
  • With more and more employers, lenders, housing providers, and colleges or universities requiring background screenings, a DUI conviction may put many of your future opportunities at risk.
  • Obtaining auto insurance may also be challenging with a DUI on your record.
  • If you are facing a second or subsequent DUI conviction, the penalties increase dramatically-you may even be facing a felony DUI if you have 5 prior offenses within 10 years.
  • A DUI conviction will also be a permanent addition to your criminal record.

know your rights

Washington State has some of the toughest DUI laws in our nation. These laws carry increasingly severe penalties for those who drink and drive. Washington lowered the BAC limit from .10 to 0.08 in January of 1999. Drivers with a blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) at .08 or above can now be convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol. In addition, because public sentiment is so very negative toward drunk drivers, prosecutors will often pursue a DUI conviction even when the driver’s test result is well under .08! This is possible because they can obtain a conviction if they can show the person drove while “affected by” alcohol, and/or marijuana or any drug, including prescription or over-the-counter medications.
