Late Requests (More than 10 calendar days after the vehicle was towed)
Requests received in the Hearings Office more than 10 calendar days after the vehicle was towed must also show good cause for why the request is late. When filing through the online case management system, fill out the late request portion. When submitting a Tow Hearing Request Form, fill out Section B.
The Hearings Officer will review the request and determine if there is good cause for the late request. If the Hearings Officer finds good cause for the late request, a hearing will be scheduled.

Statement of Rights and Procedures
Request to Reschedule
Vehicle still at the tow company (In Storage)?
If your vehicle is still at the tow company, you should submit the Request to Reschedule Form as soon as possible. Please note: If the Hearings Officer grants the request to reschedule, the Appellant (person who requested the hearing) is responsible for all storage costs after the date and time of the originally scheduled hearing, even if the Appellant prevails (wins) at the hearing.
Have you retrieved your vehicle from the tow company already (NOT in storage)?
If your vehicle is not in storage, the Request to Reschedule Form is required to be received in the Hearings Office at least 48 hours prior to the start of the scheduled hearing. The sooner you can submit your reschedule request, the better. The Hearings Officer will determine if the hearing will be rescheduled.
