DMV Hearings

DMV Hearings

DMV hearings are administrative hearings that are unrelated to your criminal case. While the DMV hearing officer has no effect on your criminal case, the hearing officer has the power to take away your driving privileges and suspend your license. For the best opportunity in success, this type of hearing should be handled by a skilled and trained attorney.

DMV hearings must be scheduled within 10 days from the date of arrest. If you have been arrested, the officer will first take your driver’s license and then give you a pink “Notice of Suspension” paper. This pink piece of paper will act as a temporary license for 30 days. The most important part about this pink piece of paper is that it puts you on notice that you are entitled to a DMV hearing, only if you request it within 10 days of your arrest. If you do not request this hearing, your right to this hearing is waived.

Once you request this hearing, your restricted license will remain in effect until after the DMV has made a decision about whether they will suspend your license or not.
