Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Unfortunately, while you were unaware that he had a suspended license if he was driving on one there is a right for you as owner to request a post storage hearing within 10 days of the seizure in writing and they should have the forms and once you file, they have 48 hours (excluding weekends) to give you a hearing to present your case for the release. Your situation, not knowing his license was suspended and you being sick is usually enough for them to issue an early release, but you need to go to the impound lot and you need to file for the appeal.
