Driver’s License Suspension

If you have been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, it is not unlikely that the law enforcement officer will immediately confiscate your license. You will also likely be given an Order of Suspension, as well as a Temporary License. This Temporary License will only last for 30 days. If you do nothing, then your license will be suspended. You, however, do not just have to sit quietly and wait for the suspension to begin. There are ways that you can fight to protect your driving privileges.

If you act quickly, you are given a 10 day window from the time of the arrest to request a DMV hearing. During this hearing, you will not be dealing with the question of your guilty - rather, you will be dealing with the circumstances of the arrest and the validity of the suspension. During this time, the California Department of Motor Vehicles might decide to uphold the suspension or they could choose to set it aside.

Protecting Your Driving Privileges

Having an active driver's license is essential for many people. It can be the difference between keeping a job and being unemployed and can be the glue that holds many people's everyday lives together. So what happens if you're at risk of losing it? We know the importance of keeping a working driver's license and we remain fully dedicated to ensuring that our clients have the legal representation that they deserve in both the DMV hearing and the criminal case.

It is important to realize that while both of these deal with your DUI, they are two separate procedures that will run independently of one another. Should your license suspension be set aside in the DMV hearing and you are later found guilty of drunk driving, you would still eventually lose your license; the earlier ruling would have no impact on the later. On the other hand, if the DMV hearing rules to suspend your license, it will not matter whether you are found guilty or not; you already experienced an administrative license suspension.
