Alameda County DUI Lawyer
DMV Hearing

10 Day Rule
After you are arrested for driving under the influence, the police officer will confiscate your driver's license and issue a temporary driving permit that is good for 30 days. Immediately following your release from police custody, it's important to schedule a hearing with the California Department of Motor Vehicles Driver Safety Office. It's imperative that you schedule this hearing in a timely fashion as you only have 10 DAYS from the date of your arrest to do so. If you do not schedule your DMV hearing within 10 days, your driver's license will automatically be suspended for up to one year.

What is the DMV Hearing?
There are two aspects to every DUI case: the DMV hearing and the criminal case. The DMV hearing is an administrative hearing to determine whether your driving privileges will remain suspended or be reinstated.  This is the sole purpose of the DMV hearing. At no point during the DMV hearing will the issue of whether you are "guilty" or "not guilty" be addressed. That is to be determined during the criminal court process.

At the Hearing
The DMV hearing gives you and your attorney the opportunity to challenge the suspension of your driver's license.  The hearing takes place before a DMV officer who will act as the judge. At the hearing, your attorney can present evidence in your favor, and challenge the evidence collected and submitted by arresting officer. The DMV officer is then responsible for weighing your argument against the evidence and testimony of the arresting officer. Upon conclusion of your hearing, the DMV officer will make a final ruling to either reinstate your driver's license or continue the suspension. If you do not win at the DMV hearing, your license will most likely be suspended for four months for a first-time DUI, and up to three years for a second, third, or fourth DUI.
