In Oregon you have 10 days from the date of your arrest to request a DMV hearing to challenge any license suspension that was imposed due to a breath test result or refusal.
Why should you request a DMV hearing?
- It locks the officer into his/her testimony before they’ve had an opportunity to practice their testimony with the prosecutor.
- You may win and not have your license suspended for 90 days to 3 years.
- If we win, we have strong leverage when negotiating with the prosecutor.
- If we lose — nothing changes. There is no downside.
