Orange County DMV Hearings

What is a DMV hearing and how does it work? The first thing you must be aware of is that you are given ten days from the date of your DUI arrest to schedule your DMV hearing so time is of the essence!

If you have been arrested for a DUI, then your driver’s license will be taken away by the police and in most cases be replaced by a temporary driver’s license. That temporary license allows for you to continue driving for 30 days. This is why it is important to schedule a DMV hearing as soon as possible. When your 30 days are over, your temporary license will expire and so will your driving privilege.

It is not suggested to appear at this DMV Hearing without proper representation by an experienced DUI attorney. Your attorney will meet with the DMV Hearing Officer and the facts of your case will be reviewed and analyzed. Upon final review, the Hearing Officer will decide if a suspension action will be taken against your driving privileges.
