DMV Hearing 

Corona DMV Lawyer

Skilled Attorneys for Driver’s License Suspensions

If you have been arrested on a charge of DUI, then the officer may have automatically revoked your license. You only have ten days after an arrest to request a DMV hearing to appeal the suspension. If you fail to do this, you may lose your driving privileges for a duration of 6 months, or even longer. Driving while your license is suspended is a crime punishable with jail time and heavy fines.

Preventing Automatic License Suspension

In California, the driver's license suspension procedure is separate from the criminal trial of your DUI charge. This means that you must defend yourself in two separate legal procedures. The DMV hearing is a vital step in preventing your license from being automatically suspended after an arrest.

If your license is suspended, you may not drive a vehicle for any reason, including:

  • Traveling to and back from school or work
  • As part of an occupation (i.e., truck drivers)
  • To run errands and perform other responsibilities

At Hanson, Gorian, Bradford & Hanich, we provide effective defense to our clients during their criminal trial and their DMV hearing. In both situations, it is vital for you to preserve your driving privileges and prevent a DUI arrest from affecting your occupation and other responsibilities.

Our DMV hearing attorneys in Corona have 50+ years of combined experience.

DMV Hearings vs. Criminal Trials

During an administrating hearing at the DMV, an official will review your case. This primary consists of the arresting officer's report. At the hearing, you may have the opportunity to challenge the evidence and present a case to demonstrate that the suspension was not justified. A skilled defense attorney may provide the legal representation you need to protect your driving privileges.

A DMV hearing does not play any role in your criminal trial or conviction sentence. While the trial determines whether you are guilty of driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, a DMV hearing is complete separate affair. Contrary to what many people may think, the ability to drive is a privilege, and not a right—violating DMV regulations often results in a penalty.

Requesting Restricted Driving Privileges

A DMV hearing is not solely to appeal a driver's license suspension. At this administrative hearing, you may also request to obtain limited driving privileges in order to maintain your occupational responsibilities. In most cases, these privileges are restricted to driving back and forth from school, work, or other specific locations that allow you to maintain a living. Even if you are unable to prevent the automatic license suspension, you may still be able to secure these restricted driving privileges
