Appeals to superior court from suspension, cancellation, or refusal of registration or certificate of ownership.
May I appeal the department's decision to refuse to issue a registration or certificate of ownership or suspend or cancel a registration or certificate of ownership?
Yes. The suspension, cancellation, or refusal by the department of any registration or certificate of title provided for in chapter 88.02 RCW and chapter 250, Laws of 1984, or chapter 308-93 WAC will be conclusive unless the person whose registration or certificate is suspended, canceled, or refused appeals to the superior court of Thurston County, or to the superior court of the county of the person's residence, for the purpose of having the suspension, cancellation, or refusal of such registration or certificate set aside. Notice of appeal must be filed within ten days after receipt of the notice of suspension, cancellation, or refusal. Upon the filing of the notice of appeal the court must issue an order to the department to show cause why the registration should not be granted or reinstated, which order must be returned not less than ten days after the date of service thereof upon the department. Service must be in the manner prescribed for service of summons and complaint in other civil actions.
At the hearing on the order to show cause, the court will hear evidence concerning matters with reference to the suspension, cancellation, or refusal of the registration or certificate and will enter judgment either affirming or setting aside such suspension, cancellation, or refusal.
