Beverly Hills DUI Attorney

You Have 10 Days to Schedule Your DMV Hearing!

After a police officer arrests someone for driving under the influence (DUI), the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will place a suspension that individual’s license. They will not be allowed to drive until they schedule a hearing with the DMV to gain back their driving privileges.

California laws are very strict and heavily enforces the law to apprehend and punish drunk drivers. If you have been arrested for DUI, you should have a trustworthy Beverly Hills DUI lawyer working on your case as soon as possible.

What Happen at DMV Hearings?

Immediately after arrest, the officer will issue a “Notice of Suspension” note, which will allow you to drive for at least 30 days. However, it will be up to you to schedule a DMV hearing to maintain that privilege. Otherwise, you could lose out on the right and will not be able to retain your driving privileges.

Additionally, you must fulfill these requirements before your license can be reinstated:

  • Enrollment in a DUI education program
  • Pay a $125 reinstatement fee
  • Submit a completed SR-22 insurance form
  • If required, installation of an Ignition Interlock Device

If you do not schedule your DMV hearing within the 10-day window, not only can this afford you extra time and delay the suspension or revocation of a license until a decision has been made. If you win the hearing, it can prevent the suspension of your license altogether!
