10. Is there a fee for an ADLRO hearing?Posted on Jan 13, 2017 in
Yes. There is a non-refundable $30 fee for a hearing, payable by cash, check or money order (no credit or debit cards accepted), made payable to “State Director of Finance” (not to ADLRO). There is also a non-refundable $25.00 fee for any returned checks.
The hearing fee is payable upon request for hearing. If you subsequently withdraw your request for hearing or default by failing to appear for the hearing, you must still pay the hearing fee, or else you will not be eligible for relicensing at the end of your revocation period.
If you are indigent, you can request a waiver of the hearing fee by submitting a waiver request form & declaration, along with a copy of your most recent pay statement(s) and your last federal & state tax returns. Required forms are available on this website. If you request a fee waiver and it is denied, you must pay the $30 hearing fee in full prior to commencement of the hearing or else the hearing will not be conducted.
No requested subpoenas will be issued by the ADLRO unless/until the required hearing fee is paid in full or waived (see question # 12 below). Additionally, you will not be eligible for a relicensing form to get relicensed at the end of your revocation period if you owe any outstanding fees to the ADLRO (see question # 22 below).
