What Happens at an Order of Suspension/Revocation Hearing? Appearing at a DMV Hearing to deal with an “Order of Suspension/Revocation” means the DMV has focused upon you and intends to strip you of the privilege to drive. You MUST be clear on what is happening here. The “Order of Suspension/Revocation” is a notice that that your driver license IS BEING SUSPENDED. The whole purpose of appearing at your hearing is to reverse that action.
Your Order of Suspension/Revocation Hearing will be conducted at one of several Driver Safety Offices in California. The Driver Safety Office is the DMV version of a court house and is where DMV Hearing Officers sit in judgment of drivers. In the world of the DMV, a Hearing Officer enjoys the same power as a Superior Court Judge. They hold the absolute power to reinstate your driving privilege or to immediately take you off the road.
The basic format for an Order of Suspension Revocation Hearing is similar throughout a variety of hearings. Essentially, the DMV presents its case and evidence to support the suspension or revocation of your license. Then the driver is permitted to make legal objections to the DMV’s evidence and then finally, the driver is permitted to offer their own evidence to rebut the allegation.
Make no mistake; this is a formal legal proceeding that few drivers understand. Being represented by a DMV Defense Expert gives you the best opportunity to prevail and keep your driver license.
How Can I Win an Order of Suspension Revocation Hearing?
The reason you are in front of the Hearing Officer is because they have some information that suggests you are not safe to drive or that you have violated some law that requires the suspension of your driver license. You may be facing the suspension or revocation of your driver license for: A DUI Arrest, Accumulating too many moving violations, Failing to maintain auto insurance, Having a Physical or Mental Ailment, Involvement in a Fatal Auto Accident, Committing an act of fraud, Addiction or habitual use of alcohol, Addiction or habitual use of drugs or meds.
