DMV Hearings In California DUI Cases

A DUI arrest causes two separate and distinct actions - one by the court and one by theDMV.

A Word About Public Defenders

PUBLIC DEFENDERS DO NOT REPRESENT CLIENTS AT DMV HEARINGS. Even if you have a public defender for your criminal court case, they will not able able to help you with your DMV license case because that case is civil in nature, and you only get a public defender for criminal cases.

DO NOT WAIT MORE THAN 10 CALENDAR DAYS TO HAVE A LAWYER CONTACT THE DMV, IN SACRAMENTO, OR YOU WILL AUTOMATICALLY LOSE YOUR LICENSE, REGARDLESS OF WHAT HAPPENS IN COURT.

YOU HAVE ONLY 10 CALENDAR DAYS FROM THE DATE OF YOUR ARREST TO HAVE A LAWYER CONTACT DMV IN SACRAMENTO [ NOT LOCALLY] OR YOU WILL IMMEDIATELY LOSE YOUR LICENSE FOR FOUR MONTHS TO LIFE DEPENDING ON YOUR CHARGES, DRIVING RECORD, AND DRIVING STATUS.

IMMEDIATELY CALL THE DEPARTMENT OF MOTOR VEHICLES IN SACRAMENTO AT THE NUMBER ON THE UPPER RIGHT-HAND CORNER OF YOUR TEMPORARY LICENSE ENDORSEMENT AND SUSPENSION.
