What Is the Administrative Process?
The administrative process hearing precedes a criminal hearing for a DUI. The Utah Driver License Division conducts these hearings and an employee will decide if a person charged with a DUI can keep their license. The employee will weigh the evidence collected by a police officer and determine if there was a reasonable chance of intoxication at the time of arrest. Because of the subjective nature of these hearings, a knowledgeable attorney can help you make your case.
