Don't Lose Your Driver's License

Police and CHP procedure when you are cited for a DUI offense is to confiscate your license. At the same time, they hand you a pink form with a bunch of gibberish on the front of it. That pink form serves as your temporary driver's license. It also notifies you that you have only 10 days to contact the DMV to set a hearing to contest the suspension. If you don't request a hearing within the 10 days you lose the right to have a hearing. Call Fresno DUI and DMV attorney Mike Mitchell for a free discussion regarding how he may be able to save your driver's license. You can reach his office at (559) 222-2424.

The DMV Process

If you've received a citation for Driving under the Influence you need to act right away to make sure you have a DMV hearing before the 10-day window closes. If you decide to have our office represent you, we will immediately obtain a DMV hearing for you and we will also obtain a stay of the suspension and a temporary driver's license

Depending on when your DMV hearing is set, usually within 30 days, you will continue to be able to drive with your temporary license pending the decision at the hearing. If we win the hearing your license will be reinstated free of charge by the DMV.

Often, clients say "well I was clearly over the limit, why should I bother with a DMV hearing?" I couldn't imagine a better question. Perhaps you are thinking something along the same lines. I know I would be if I didn't have the experience I do in this line of work. The crazy thing about the DMV is your blood alcohol limit is just one part of the equation. DMV is very procedural and if there are any violations of the procedures on the part of the officer, you become the beneficiary of the officer's mistakes and your license is reinstated.
