Is it worth paying $375 for the DOL Hearing?

Yes. Even though your chances of success are slim (see previous post) it is always worth requesting a Department of Licensing (DOL) hearing. You just never know what may happen. Worst case is you get a preview of the prosecutors case and often way before the DUI criminal case is filed. I use the hearing for discovery proposes. In other words, to try to find out as much about the client’s DUI case as possible. (review the police report, breath test evidence, talk to witnesses etc.)
