Tow Truck Drivers DMV Defense

One of the inevitable truths about driving in California is that “cars break down.” If you are like most of us with terrible luck, your car will probably break down in the most inconvenient location possible. When this happens, we often turn to the tow truck driver. These professional drivers typically work for towing companies, service stations, or auto salvage businesses. Tow truck drivers operate specially designed and equipped vehicles to remove other disabled and abandoned vehicles from the roadway in a quick and efficient manner

Tow truck drivers are expected to arrive promptly despite weather or traffic conditions and, in some instances, deal with drivers who are less than happy. If you are a tow truck driver, you know that a disabled motorist or a person recovering from an auto accident is not in the best frame of mind. It can make your job difficult. Nonetheless, we need these professional drivers on the road to help us. These professional drivers need their license to do their job.

Losing Your License and the Need  for Tow Truck Drivers DMV Defense

In most instances, the State of California will require that a tow truck driver possess a valid Class “A” or Class “B” Commercial Driver License (CDL). Additionally, the California Vehicle Code mandates that all tow truck drivers possess a valid Tow Truck Driver Certificate. Because tow truck drivers are considered professional drivers, they are held to the same high standard as any other driver holding a Commercial Driver License or Special Certificate. As such, the DMV possesses a wide range of opportunities to refuse, suspend, or revoke the Tow Truck Driver’s license or Special Certificate.

Start Protecting your Special Certificate or License with Tow Truck Drivers DMV Defense

There are numerous means by which the DMV can move to refuse, suspend, or revoke a license. If you receive notice from the Department of Motor Vehicles that they intend to refuse, suspend or revoke your license, you must act quickly. To protect your privilege, contact must be made with the Office of Driver Safety (DSO) within the first 10 days following the notice of suspension. Failure to contact the DMV within that time period forfeits your right to a hearing and the suspension or revocation is automatic. You are entitled to fight for yourself and you cannot make the suspension/revocation any worse by doing so. All you can do is make the situation better.
