How can I appeal a decision to revoke my drivers license?

It is possible to appeal a driver’s license revocation, however there are certain things you will be required to do in order to preserve your driving privileges. Many of us will not realize how valuable our driving privileges are until they are taken away, and are unaware of our dependence on our ability to get from place to place freely. If you are also dependent upon your ability to drive for your job, you could be in serious hot water if your license has been revoked. Your license may have been revoked for DUI, reckless driving, multiple traffic violations, failing to maintain insurance, or even failing to pay parking or traffic tickets. You should immediately hire an attorney to help you appeal your license revocation as it can be a complex process. Should you fail to correctly complete all paperwork in a timely manner, your driving privileges may remain in jeopardy, so an attorney who understands the process can be an invaluable resource. Make sure your driving record is clean—aside from the current issue—and be extra sure that all other suspensions or revocations from the past are cleared. Additionally, make sure you do not incur any moving violations during this time. If your license was revoked due to a DUI, you should voluntarily undergo an alcohol and drug evaluation, and submit proof of treatment to the proper authority. If this is your first offense you may be able to request an informal hearing before a hearing officer, depending on your state. If your revocation is due to a more serious issue, you could request a formal hearing in writing, paying the filing fee.

Consult an Attorney

You should definitely consult an attorney before attending a revocation hearing, as you stand a much better chance of regaining your license if you have an experienced attorney who knows the particular laws of your state regarding license revocation.
