DUI License Reinstatement in Lexington, SC

South Carolina has what is called an implied consent law. This law requires that drivers in South Carolina agree to consent to give a breath sample at the request of law enforcement as part of a DUI arrest. If the driver refuses this consent it will result in the defendant receiving a Notice of Suspension directly from the officer. This suspension is set to begin immediately and is not conditional upon the driver either being found guilty or not guilty later in Court for the DUI. Drivers who cooperate with the breathalyzer test may also receive a Notice of Suspension if their blood alcohol level is over 0.15. In addition to facing an immediate license suspension they also will face criminal prosecution for a higher level of DUI offense.

Start Driving Legally Again in Lexington, South Carolina

As part of the service we provide our DUI defense clients we seek the immediate reinstatement of a driver's license suspended as part of a DUI arrest. South Carolina law provides that upon notice of a request for a hearing regarding the Notice of Hearing the Department of Motor Vehicles must send a letter providing for the reinstatement of the suspended license. This typically happens within one week of receiving our request for hearing. We recommend either having our client's hearing request hand delivered to the DMV hearing office for same day service or sending it by special courier for earlier processing.
