Department of Motor Vehicle Hearing Attorney in Kern County
When you have been arrested and charged with any type of DUI charge, part of the process is the DMV hearing. When you were arrested, your driver's license is usually taken by law enforcement and you are issued a 30-day temporary license. The DMV hearing is the administrative hearing in which it is decided what will be done with your driver's license, and if you do not make the request for a DMV hearing within 10 days after your arrest, your license will be automatically suspended after the 30 days. It is strongly advised that you get the assistance of a qualified, experienced Kern County DMV hearing attorney to assist you by both scheduling and representing you at this hearing.
DMV Hearings in Bakersfield
At the DMV hearing, which is a separate part of a DUI charge and does not replace the court appearance on the actual charge, the evidence against you will be reviewed. Some of the items to be looked at include: Did the law enforcement officer have "probable cause" to suspect you of driving under the influence? Was the arrest done correctly per the law? If any of these factors are able to be challenged, or if your DUI defense attorney has already filed court challenges that suppress certain evidence, your driver's license suspension may be set aside.
