You Only Have 14 Days to Protect Your License

If you’ve been charged with drunk driving, you only have 14 days to schedule an administrative license suspension hearing; if you don’t, your license will automatically be suspended. Under certain circumstances, you may have 3 additional days to schedule a hearing, but it’s always best to contact an attorney as soon as possible to request your hearing.

What Are the Penalties for a DUI in Kansas?

The penalties for drunk driving depend on several factors, including prior offenses and whether your alleged crime caused an injury or car accident.

In Kansas, your first DUI is punishable by:

  • License suspension
  • At least $750 in fines
