Keep Driving After a DUI

This type of hearing normally occurs after an alcohol related arrest or detention. For drivers older than 21, an APS suspension will automatically trigger upon an alcohol level of .08% or greater. For drivers under the age of 21, DMV enforces a “zero tolerance” standard; in this case an APS suspension will automatically trigger upon an alcohol level of .01% or greater. Learn more about our APS hearing defense.

Serious Hearings need Serious Defense

Of all the Administrative Hearings conducted by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), the most emotional and gut wrenching are the Fatality Hearings. The California Vehicle Code permits the suspension or revocation of any person’s driving privilege if they are involved in a traffic collision which results in the death or serious injury of another person. Learn more about our Fatality hearing defense at the DMV here.

Remedy Expensive Mistakes

Every person who owns or operates a motor vehicle in the State of California, is mandated to maintain appropriate liability insurance on that vehicle. This ensures that any persons injured, or any property damaged, as a result of an automobile accident or incident can be compensated for that injury or damage. Learn more about our Financial hearing defense at the DMV here.

Serious, but Defensible

There is no question that the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) possesses the power to grant a person the privilege to a motor vehicle in the State of California but they also have to power to suspend or revoke the license if they suspect the driver has been involved in a fraudulent act when applying for or using a driver license. Learn more about how we defend at Fraudulent activity hearings here.

Any person who holds a driver license in the State of California will remain under the scrutiny of the California Department of Motor Vehicles. Among other standards, the DMV will forever want to ensure that a driver possesses the Skill to Drive. If the DMV suspects that any driver Lacks the Skill to Drive, the department will withdraw that person’s driving privilege. It is common for the DMV to take this type of action in instances where a person’s foot slips from the brake onto the accelerator, causing a crash. This type of suspension is also common in cases where a driver fails to pass a written or a driving test. We are experts in the area of Lack of Skill Hearings and can help get you back on the road.

One of the more common medical reasons for the Department of Motor Vehicles to suspend a person’s driving privilege is for a Lapse of Consciousness or Control. This frequently arises when a person suffers with epilepsy or diabetes; however, any medical condition that can cause a person to experience an altered state of awareness can result the suspension in your driving privilege. We are experts in conducting and winning the Lapse of Consciousness hearing. For more information on winning a Lapse of Consciousness Hearing, click here.

Flagged by the DMV?

This type of hearing is normally caused by a driver who accumulates too many points (citations for moving violations) within a specified period of time. A driver may also appear at a Negligent Operator Hearing if involved in a fatality accident or, if the DMV believes the driver has demonstrated a lack of driving skill. We can defend at your Negligent Operator Hearing, learn more here.

Prove Your Ability to Drive

This type of hearing is normally triggered when a driver is suspected of having a medical or mental condition that may render him/her unable to safely drive on public roadways. Senior citizens often face these types of hearings after contact with a police officer or following an automobile accident. We can defend your ability to drive at a physical or mental re-exam hearing, learn more here.

Maintain Your Livelihood

This type of hearing usually is triggered by the DMV discovering that an applicant for a “Special Certificate” to drive a specialized vehicle has prior convictions for crimes of “moral turpitude.” These hearings can also occur when the DMV learns that a driver who already possesses a Special Certificate has committed an act of Moral Turpitude or other act prohibited by law and will seek to revoke the existing certificate. We can help you maintain your certificate and ability to earn as a driver, learn more here.

There are ways to WIN

This type of hearing is normally the result of a driver, who is on probation for a previous DUI conviction, being found driving with a “measurable amount” of alcohol in their blood stream. Classically, this driver is stopped for a simple moving or mechanical violation and, during the contact with the police, is found to be on probation. Learn more about Zero Tolerance Hearings here.
