Request the DMV Hearing Right Away
You must request a DMV hearing within 10 days of getting the notice that your license is up for suspension or revocation. Even if you have no idea what a DMV hearing might accomplish for you, it's best to request one in a timely manner, and then contact our office. The hearing can be conducted in person at an office of the DMV, or by telephone. In either case, the hearing is performed with a Driver Safety Hearing Officer of the DMV.
Evidence For and Against the DMV Action
At the hearing, you'll be informed first of the legal grounds for the DMV's action to revoke or suspend your license. Evidence supporting the action against your license will be presented and described. Witnesses may be called to testify (for example, an arresting officer or law enforcement officer who arrived at the scene).
You (and your criminal attorney) will be given time to present evidence and testimony in your favor, including witnesses and prior driving history. Your defense may include such matters as contesting whether a police or CHP officer had "reasonable cause" to pull you over and arrest you, and contesting an alcohol BAC measurement.
