DUI – California DMV Hearings

Los Angeles CA DMV Administrative Hearings Attorney

In Los Angeles County California, as well as the rest of the state, being arrested for DUI or DWI brings with it two aspects: the criminal case and the Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) hearing. The DMV is its own separate entity and they have authority over your driver’s license and driving privileges. Getting charged with, and ultimately convicted of a DUI or DWI in California can result in a suspension or revocation of driving privileges even if your case is dismissed in court.

Department Of Motor Vehicle Hearing Process In California

In Los Angeles County, and all of California you have ONLY 10-days from the date of your arrest to formally request a DMV hearing from the DMV Driver Safety Office. So that you do not get lost in the shuffle it makes sense to note the date you called DMV, who you dealt with at the DMV and what time it was when you called the DMV. Should you not be able to get an appointment scheduled within 30-days of the DUI arrest, an experienced Los Angeles DMV Hearing Attorney should request to have your temporary license extended, and any Administrative action stayed. The California DMV Hearing is called an “Admin Per Se Hearing.” The hearing is conducted by a DMV Hearing Officer whom is both the person prosecuting you and the un-biased judge. The Hearing is supposed to be conducted according to the Rules of Evidence for the State of California. These rules can appear to be somewhat arcane and complicated to a lay person. You should not attempt this yourself if you desire the best possible outcome. It is extremely important to retain a competent DMV attorney to represent you at this hearing in order to have the best chance of saving your privilege to drive in California.
