Did You Know?
Start Driving Again ASAP!
You can appeal your administrative license suspension, however it must be done immediately! You only have 30 days from the date of your arrest to request a hearing with the DMV in order to avoid an automatic suspension. Once we are retained, we will make the request to get your temporary driving privileges back.
You Can Refuse The Test!
Remember you have the right to refuse to submit to the field sobriety test. As always, if you decided not to take the test politely decline when the officer gives you the option. Know that when you do decline the test that you will be spending the night in jail but you will have a much better chance to not be convicted in court.
In the State of South Carolina an individual has the right to refuse to submit to a breathalyzer test. However, upon refusal your license will be automatically suspended. Still, if you have been drinking, your case will likely have a more favorable outcome if you refuse to submit to a breathalyzer test.
