What is a Notice of Proposed Suspension in Washington, DC DUI Cases?

by | May 12, 2011

If you are arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), driving while intoxicated (DWI), or operation while impaired in Washington, DC, you may be issued a “Notice of Proposed Suspension” by the arresting officer.  You will always be issued a Notice of Proposed Suspension of your DC driving privileges if you refuse a breathalyzer, urine sample, or blood test.  Once you receive the notice, you should go to the DC DMV scheduling office in SE and schedule a hearing as soon as possible, but no later than the deadline on the notice.  Your DC DUI lawyer can represent you at the hearing.
