Most suspects are given a notice of suspension and a temporary driver's license during the arrest or upon release from jail.

We can represent you during this hearing and protect your privilege to drive!

Administrative DMV hearings in California are separate from criminal court proceedings that will determine your guilt. The purpose of this hearing is to address your driving privileges and determine whether your driver's license should be suspended. At a DMV hearing, you maintain specific rights that must be protected. You are entitled to the following: Challenge the evidence against you Cross-examine witnesses Testify on your own behalf Subpoena witnesses You only have 10 days from the date of your arrest to request a DMV hearing, and therefore, immediate action should be taken. You will not be permitted to fight the suspension after this time frame.
