In California, following a DUI arrest, you have a critical window of just ten days to request a driver’s license suspension hearing. If you don’t schedule this hearing within this timeframe, the DMV will automatically impose a thirty-day license suspension. RLPC emphasizes the urgency of this matter and is ready to assist you in promptly setting up your hearing. Our attorneys can represent you at the DMV hearing, advocating to prevent the suspension of your license.

The DMV Hearing Process: A Crucial Step

The DUI arrest procedure in California authorizes the arresting police officer to confiscate your driver’s license and issue a temporary one. The only method to avert an impending license suspension is to arrange for a DMV hearing within 10 days of your arrest. Missing this deadline could lead to an automatic suspension of your driving privileges.

Successfully scheduling a hearing within this period ensures that your license remains valid until the DMV hearing concludes and a decision is made. During the DMV hearing, a DMV official will examine the details of your case.

The DMV’s decision will be based on whether the evidence suggests you were driving under the influence and/or had a BAC of .08% or higher. If the evidence is not convincing, you may have an opportunity to retain your driving rights. However, it’s important to note that the DMV hearing’s outcome does not impact the separate criminal DUI proceedings.

DMV hearings focus solely on the specifics of your driving and licensing situation, particularly any Vehicle Code violations, and the potential suspension of your license. Conversely, the criminal court will address questions of guilt and determine any criminal penalties.

Navigating Your DMV Hearing with Rubin Law, P.C.: Strategies Even with a BAC Over .08%

At RLPC, we want you to know that even if chemical tests indicated a BAC over the legal limit, there’s still a possibility of winning your DMV license suspension hearing. The focus of the DMV hearing is not solely on your BAC level but also on the legality and accuracy of the procedures used to determine it. Our experienced DUI attorneys in Los Angeles are prepared to scrutinize every detail of the testing process to defend your driving privileges.

Ensuring Fairness in Chemical Testing at Your DMV Hearing

During your DMV hearing, we will investigate whether the breath or blood test used to measure your BAC was administered correctly. This includes assessing the training and qualifications of the officer who conducted the breath test. If there were procedural errors or the officer lacked proper training, it could lead to the DMV setting aside your mandatory license suspension. Similarly, if a blood test was used, we will examine the test’s administration process to identify any potential flaws that could work in your favor. 

Defense Strategies at the DMV Hearing

Our attorneys are well-versed in the nuances of DUI law and will accompany you to the DMV hearing, focusing on arguments that advocate against the suspension of your license. These arguments may include:

  1. Lack of Reasonable Cause: Challenging whether the law enforcement officer had reasonable grounds to believe you were under the influence while driving.
  2. Unlawful Arrest: Arguing that your arrest did not comply with legal standards.
  3. BAC Discrepancies: Providing evidence that your BAC level was not above the legal limit at the time of driving.
