9. How do I request an ADLRO hearing?

Posted on Jan 13, 2017 in

If you want to request a hearing, your request must be received by the ADLRO within 6 calendar days of the review decision to get the hearing scheduled within 25 calendar days for an alcohol related offense (or within 39 calendar days for a drug related offense) of the date you were issued your NOAR when you were arrested.  If you request a hearing after 6 calendar days, but within 60 calendar days of the date you were issued your NOAR when you were arrested, your hearing will be scheduled within 30 calendar days of your received request.  As a general rule, hearings will not be scheduled if your request is beyond 60 calendar days of the date of the NOAR when you were arrested.  See HRS 291E-38.

Submit a hearing request form, or call ADLRO, to request a hearing. Required forms are available on this website. 

You may electronically submit a hearing request form to the ADLRO via e-mail (see question # 35.1 below), but you must deliver actual payment of the required hearing fee either in-person or by mail (see question # 10 below).  Your hearing will be scheduled once your request is received; however, your hearing will not be conducted as scheduled unless the required fee is paid in full prior to commencement of the hearing.  Furthermore, no requested subpoenas will be issued by the ADLRO unless/until the required hearing fee is paid in full (see question # 12 below).

Please also note that all information must be legibly included in the hearing request form in order to schedule a hearing.  Failure to legibly complete the hearing request form in its entirety may delay or prevent scheduling of the hearing.
