Loss of Driver’s License for DUI in South Carolina

Two cases will be filed against you if you are arrested for driving under the influence in Anderson County. One is a criminal case and the other is a civil case filed by the Department of Motor Vehicles that seeks to suspend your driver's license. The DMV will initiate action against your license if you registered a blood alcohol content at or above the legal limit, or if you refused to submit to a breath or blood test.

Only the DMV can decide whether your license will be suspended and when it will be returned. Its decision is separate from the court proceedings, and you could actually win your criminal case and still lose your license.

You have the right to request an Administrative Hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles and try to stop the suspension of your license. You must, however, submit a petition for a hearing within 30 days of your arrest. Failure to do so will result in the automatic suspension of your license.

Anderson DUI attorney Ryan Beasley can help with all aspects of your DUI, including petitioning the DMV on your behalf and defending you at a license hearing. The process is difficult and complex, and having experienced legal representation could mean keeping your driving privileges.
