For drivers in Arizona, it is generally well-known that criminal charges relating to vehicle offenses can be bad news. Aside from the potential fines or even prison sentences that can arise from such charges, a major concern is the possible suspension or revocation of your driver’s license. Unfortunately, this can come about in a number of ways.
Primarily, it is something that occurs following drunk driving charges. However, you do not ned to have been convicted to be denied your driving privileges. Even refusing to participate in requested tests such as being breathalyzed can result in your license being suspended.
If this happens, you could find yourself struggling to get to work, to pick up groceries or even to take your children to school. Not being legally allowed to drive can have a huge impact on your day-to-day life, so it is important to act fast.
One of the first things you can do is request a hearing to review the decision. With the right support, this could result in a reversal of the suspension. If not, it may still lead to the length of the ban being reduced, or the instatement of a license that permits you to make essential trips like the journey to work.
