Cases involving charges of driving while intoxicated (DWI) are particularly complex because they typically require two separate court hearings: an administrative hearing with the Department of Revenue and a criminal court hearing. Your Department of Revenue hearing will serve the primary function of determining whether there is substantial proof that you were operating a motor vehicle while your ability to do so was impaired. If there is enough evidence, your license can be revoked or suspended, and the length of your suspension will depend on the severity of your case.
If you have been arrested for a DWI offense, the state of Missouri will give you only 15 days to request an administrative license hearing with the Department of Revenue.
