DMV Hearings and License Suspension

If you are found to be driving a vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or more you will likely be arrested for a DUI. Following an arrest for a DUI, a police officer will likely confiscate your driver’s license and give you a piece of paper that will serve as a temporary license. After this happens, you have a right to contest the suspension of your license by scheduling a hearing with the DMV within ten days of your arrest date. You will lose your right to a hearing if you do not schedule the hearing within this ten day period. During this hearing, the DMV will determine if your license should be suspended. If there is no basis for the suspension, it will be set aside and your license will be reinstated. If you do not schedule a hearing, your license will automatically be suspended within thirty days of your arrest date. Driving with a suspended license is a crime per California Vehicle Code 14601. The reason for driving with a suspended license does not matter. Even if you are doing something essential like driving to work or taking your kids to school, if you drive with a suspended license it is a crime and you may be punished for it. Therefore, it is necessary that you hire an experienced attorney who can help you fight the DMV and make sure that your license remains valid. Scheduling the hearing with the DMV is a critical step to ensuring that your driver’s license is not suspended.

An experienced lawyer will defend your rights and may be the reason you are able to preserve your driving privilege. There are many ways to challenge a DUI charge with the DMV, including challenging the underlying arrest. An experienced lawyer can also challenge the stop itself or the chemical blood or breath test that was performed. It can be intimidating and challenging to fight the DMV, however having an attorney who understands the process and is familiar with the people who have the ability to get things accomplished will be an invaluable asset to your case.
