Riverside DMV Hearing Lawyer

Protect Your Right to Drive after Being Charged with DUI

When you are arrested for DUI in Riverside, the officer should give you a DS-367 form that informs you that you only have 10 days to request a DMV hearing from the date of your arrest. If you do not request your hearing within that time frame, your license will be suspended on the thirtieth day after your arrest. DMV statistics show that you do more than double your chances of winning your DMV hearing by hiring an attorney, and these chances are even higher when you retain a Riverside DUI attorney. If arrested for DUI in Riverside County, you will most likely have your DMV hearing at the Driver Safety Office located in San Bernardino.

Riverside DMV Drunk Driving Admin Per Se Hearing

As mentioned above, a pink notice of suspension and a temporary driver's license (DMV Form DS-367) are typically issued to you upon release from custody. The DMV drivers' license suspension for DUI in Riverside is separate and additional to your court hearing. It is important that you request a DMV hearing within ten days of your arrest, which is best done by retaining a Riverside DUI lawyer to handle the situation for you.

Riverside DMV Hearing Goals

If our DUI law firm is not able to obtain a dismissal of your case, our goal will then become to reduce the charges against you as much as possible and to minimize any negative consequences from your DUI arrest. In cases that are complicated by enhancements and/or previous DUI convictions in the last ten years, it may be that the best DMV resolution for your individual DUI case is a restricted driver's license and a shorter revocation. Loss of driving privileges is a serious consequence that can affect all areas of your life.

Riverside DMV Hearing Request Benefits

A DMV hearing request for Riverside County will often result in an extension of the 30-day temporary drivers' license that was issued to you at the time of your DUI arrest. The term for extended driving privileges can span many months until your case can be heard in court. If you have been arrested and charged with drunk driving, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by requesting your DMV hearing, especially when you have a Riverside DUI attorney acting on your behalf.
