DPS DUI Oklahoma
DPS is currently mailing a letter to anyone arrested for DUI as soon as they receive notice from the police officer. It is titled “Order of Revocation” and lists the person’s conviction date as being the same as their arrest date—which is wrong. We still have a Constitution, and a driver is entitled to Due Process before such an action can take place.
The letter list 4 bullet points about the IDAP program (voluntary installation of an interlock). The only hint of any other option is when one sentence says or requests a modification. There is no explanation of what a modification is or how to obtain it.
Also, they neglect to tell you—
YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO A HEARING!
Yes, you have a right to a hearing, and you have 30 days to make that request.
At that hearing, you can contest the potential suspension. If you win, you will not have a suspended license or interlock for an administrative suspension. If you are unsuccessful, then you can request an interlock and continue to drive.
Why would DPS only promote the IDAP program, which obviously benefits the interlock companies, while they are hiding or failing to inform the drivers that they have rights and other options?
This is another example of why we took the extraordinary step of hiring an attorney devoted to nothing but DPS issues. We protect our clients.
