Types of Hearings


  • Informal Hearings are required for petitioners who have been suspended or revoked for a single loss or driving privileges stemming from a DUI or an offense related to a lesser moving violation that does not involve a fatality.

  • Informal Hearings may be held at select Drivers Services facilities, and petitions may be made for a Restricted Driving Permit or Full Reinstatement of your driving privileges, depending on the type of suspension or revocation.

  • Formal Hearings are required for anyone who does not qualify for an Informal Hearing. Formal Hearings are typically for people with multiple DUI arrests and / or more serious offenses than those handled through Informal Hearings.

  • Regardless of the type of hearing you are required to have, you have the right to an attorney and Johnson & Goldrich will ensure you successfully make it through the entire process.
