DMV License Matters

(1) DMV Hearings for DUI matters

(3) DMV Hearings for Medical Reasons

(4) Under Age 21 suspensions

DMV Hearings for DUI Arrests

If a person is arrested for a DUI, he or she only has 10 days to avoid a suspension by default of his or her license. To often, persons who are arrested mistakenly believe that they have 30 days to get a hearing. This is because the police officer often gives a pink slip to the arrestee that says they have a temporary license for 30 days. However, if you read the fine print, it also says you only have 10 days to request a DMV Hearing. Failure to request a hearing within the 10 day period automatically results in suspension or revocation of your license. The crucial thing to know is that if you drive as a result of a DUI related suspension, you face mandatory jail time pursuant to vehicle code 14601.2 which states in relevant part, “Upon a first conviction, by imprisonment in the county for not less than 10 days or more than six months. . .” A skilled DMV lawyer can help fight to save your license.


Negligent Operator Hearing

The DMV will take away a persons license if it feels that person is a negligent driver.

The criteria to determine whether some is a negligent driver is based on a point system.

Vehicle Code section 12810 requires the DMV to assign one point to any traffic ticket conviction such as speeding (Vehicle code section 22348(a) or running a red light.

Two Point Convictions include Hit and Run (Vehicle Code section 20002), reckless driving (VC 23103), and DUI (VC 23152)

In addition, the DMV assess points for out of state traffic convictions, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Canada.


Notice of Intent to Suspend for Negligent Operator

The DMV will mail a notice of intent to suspend if you receive 3 points within 12 months, five points within 24 months and 7 points within 36 months.


Suspension because you are a Negligent Operator

The DMV will suspend if you they can prove:

4 points in 12 months, or

6 points in 24 months, or

8 points in 36 months

However, please note you are entitle to a hearing and often a skilled DMV lawyer can help you avoid a revocation of your license

Medical Reasons Suspension

If you suffer from a medical problem such as Diabetes Melitus, Seizures, Dementia, Alzheimers, or any other mental disorder the DMV can revoke your license.

In addition, if a police officer or a doctor believes because of your age and other factors, you are unable to safely drive a motor vehicle, you could face the loss of your drivers license. A skilled DMV lawyer can help.

Under Age 21 Suspension

If you are under Age 21 and you have not called the DMV within 10 days you will face a one year license suspension on a first offense. A skilled DMV lawyer can help.
