20 Day Rule for DUI in WA

When you get your license in Washington State, you sign a document stating that you agree to not drive drunk and that you will consent to a breath or blood test if an officer believes you to be driving under the influence. In practice, this means that if you get pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving, you must take a test to measure your BAC. If you fail the test or refuse to take it, your license will be suspended within 60 days of your arrest. Because driving is considered a privilege, not a right, you are not entitled to due process when it comes to license suspension. Regardless, you still have the option to request a hearing regarding the license suspension with the Department of Licensing closest to the location of your incident, be it Everett, Olympia, Bremerton or anywhere in between.
