DMV License Hearing
Sacramento DUI Lawyer
When a person is arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), they will face two separate legal cases, a criminal case and a DMV license hearing. The DMV hearing is a civil action where the status of your driving privileges will be determined. You have 10 days following your arrest to arrange the hearing. Representation by a qualified attorney at the hearing may help you avoid a license suspension. Prevent suspension may be difficult if you refuse any form of blood alcohol testing either before or after arrest.
It is implied when you receive your driver's license that you will consent to DUI testing when requested by law enforcement. Test refusal is an automatic license suspension. Wise Law Group, PC is an experienced DUI defense firm that will aggressively protect your rights at your DMV hearing and throughout your criminal case. They may be able to help you avoid a suspension even if you refused blood testing.
Reviewing Your DUI at the DMV
At a DMV administrative hearing, your arrest will be reviewed by a hearing officer, who will look at very specific aspects of your case, such as:
- Law enforcement had reasonable cause to stop you for DUI
- Appropriate police procedures were followed
- Your blood alcohol concentration was 0.08% or greater
