License Suspension Let Us Be Your Voice for Justice

Fresno License Suspension Attorney

Fighting Suspended Licenses in California

If you’ve been arrested for a DUI, your driver’s license will automatically be revoked and you will be issued a temporary license that is good for 30 days. If you don’t take immediate action, your license will be suspended at the end of the 30-day period. It is critical to begin your DUI defense quickly to avoid losing your driving privileges. Our Fresno license suspension lawyer is prepared to help you protect your driver’s license.

DMV Hearing

If your license has been suspended after a DUI, you have 10 days from the date of your arrest to request a hearing with the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). At the DMV hearing, you will be able to fight your suspended license, and prove that your arrest was unjustified. Your lawyer can represent you at the hearing and can help you prepare to defend your license.

Your DMV hearing is different from your criminal trial. Since the DMV is taking action against you by suspending your license, you must have an opportunity to be heard, according to due legal process. Your DMV hearing allows you to exercise your right to a hearing. This hearing will only discuss your driving privileges and the circumstances of your arrest. It is not a criminal trial, and any criminal aspects of your trial will not be heard. At your DMV hearing, you can expect to discuss:

  • Probable cause and if the officer had reasonable suspicion that you were impaired.
  • If your arrest was lawful.
  • If you were driving while your blood alcohol content was 0.08 or higher.

If you refused to take or failed to complete a blood, breath, or urine test, the hearing will also address:

  • If you were told that, should you refuse the test, your driving privilege would be suspended for one year or revoked for 2 to 3 years.
  • If you refused to submit to or complete the test after an officer requested that you do so.

How Long Can My License Be Suspended?

The length of your license suspension is dependent on several factors, including your age, your BAC, and prior DUI convictions.

Drivers Under 21

  • BAC greater than 0.01: 1-year suspension

Drivers Over 21:
