Orange County DMV Hearing Lawyer

Once a person is arrested for DUI in Orange County, his/her driver’s license will be confiscated by law enforcement, and he/she will be given a temporary driver’s permit. This permit will allow the person to drive for up to 30 days. After the 30 day period, the person’s driving privileges will automatically be suspended. To avoid suspension, the person must schedule a hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) within 10 days of his/her arrest to contest the suspension of his/her driver’s license.

DUI Lawyer Representing Clients at DMV Hearings


After the person has scheduled his/her hearing with the California Department of Motor Vehicles, he/she will be issued a time and date in which he/she must appear at his/her local DMV. During the DMV Hearing, a DMV representative will meet with the person in a designated room. The DMV representative has dual roles. First, the DMV representative serves as a prosecutor. This means that the representative will present evidence against the person and argue why the person should not have his/her driving privileges reinstated. Second, the DMV representative will serve as a judge, meaning the representative will make a final ruling after carefully reviewing the case facts and evidence.

If the DMV representative finds that the person is guilty, the person will lose his/her driving privileges for a set period of time. However, if the DMV representative finds that the person is not guilty, the person’s driving privileges will be reinstated.

Often times, people choose to defend themselves during their DMV Hearings. This is usually not the best idea as most people are not equipped with the training and knowledge it takes to successfully plead their case. In these cases, it is always beneficial to retain the services of a reliable DUI Defense Attorney. A DUI defense lawyer could defend a person during his/her DMV Hearing, challenge evidence, question the arresting officer’s testimony, and also help to person obtain a hardship license.
