Preparing for the Florida DUI Administrative Hearing (Online)  

This is an independent study, self-paced course.

This class will give you an overview of the driver license administrative suspension hearings and the rules that govern the process. Since officers give testimony without the benefit of an attorney on their side at these hearings, they must become familiar with what they can and cannot do.

You will be presented with effective techniques for preparing, testifying and following-up after the hearing. In addition, you will learn how to protect your cases and keep the hearings from becoming “free depositions.”

Topics Include

  • An overview of the applicable laws and forms
  • The hearing process – what to expect
  • What is and what isn’t within the scope
  • Tips for testifying
  • Keeping the hearing from being a “free deposition”
  • Following-up after the hearing

Audience

Patrol and traffic officers, supervisors, breath test operators and others who are employed and under the direct control of a public criminal justice agency. Assistant State Attorneys and DHSMV hearing officers are also welcome.
