Connecticut License Restoration Hearings
Legal Representation from Experienced Connecticut DUI Attorneys
After an arrest for OUI (operating under the influence) or DUI (driving under the influence) in the state of Connecticut, you’ll have to deal with more than the criminal charges made against you. In addition, your driver’s license will be suspended by the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles – and the only way you can reinstate your license is through a hearing to fight the suspension.

How to Fight for Reinstatement of a Suspended Driver’s License
Drivers whose licenses have been suspended after an arrest for DUI will only have a short period of time to request a suspension hearing. If you do not act within the time allotted to you, any chance at reinstatement of your driver’s license will be lost. For the best chance at avoiding long-term suspension of your license, hire an attorney to represent you during the hearing.
License Suspension Hearings are conducted outside of the courtroom setting, which means they are less formal; however, this is no reason to forego your right to legal representation. In fact, doing so could significantly and negatively impact your ability to win the case.
With a DUI defense lawyer by your side at the hearing, you will have the professional guidance you need when questions such as the following arise:
- Were you arrested?
- Were you operating a vehicle?
- Did the law enforcement officer who made your arrest have probable cause to do so?
- Did breath/blood tests show you were over the legal limit? Or did you refuse to take these tests?
Questions such as these must be answered carefully, for any response that implies a “yes” could quickly lead to suspension of your driver’s license. In fact, only if all of these questions can be answered with a “no” response will you be able to avoid driver’s license suspension. This is why it’s imperative that you hire an attorney to represent your rights and advocate for your best interests at this time.
