Requesting / Scheduling a DMV Reexamination Hearing

What is a Re-Examination Hearing?  A Re-Examination Hearing before the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is conducted at a regional office known as the Driver Safety Office (DSO). Under the provisions of the California Vehicle Code and Administrative Law, a DMV Hearing Officer will conduct a “face to face” meeting with the driver and can order a series of tests or evaluations to determine a person’s ability to safely drive a motor vehicle.

An important key to winning a Re-Examination Hearing is the ability to anticipate the Hearing Officer’s actions and to be completely prepared to offer information or evidence which proves you are physically and mentally capable of driving safely.

What Happens if I Don’t Schedule a Re-Examination Hearing?  The moment you receive a “Notice of Re-Examination” from the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), a clock begins ticking. In most instances, a driver must contact their local Driver Safety Office (DSO) within the first 10-days or their driving privilege will be automatically suspended or revoked. In some instances, the time allowed to contact the DSO may be a little as 5-days.

When you receive the “Notice of Re-Examination,” the DMV is telling you they have already begun the process of taking you off the road. The only way to prevent the suspension or revocation of your driver license is to act and you MUST ACT NOW!

If you fail to schedule a “Re-Examination Hearing” or if you fail to complete the process, the DMV will suspend or revoke your driver license without further notice. Furthermore, your driving privilege will remain suspended or revoked for an indefinite period of time and can only be reversed when you schedule and complete the Re-Examination process.

Failure to act should not be an option because it only hurts you. Don’t let this happen.
