DMV Hearings in Van Nuys
A DMV hearing is a vital part of any DUI case. In essence, there are actually two parts of a DUI case: the criminal process and the DMV hearing. The criminal process involves court appearances, the trial, verdict and sentencing. The DMV hearing is entirely separate from this and involves the suspension/revocation of your driver’s license, exclusively. The outcome of your DMV hearing has no bearing on the outcome of your criminal case, and vice versa.
You have only 10 calendar days from the date of your arrest to contact the California DMV and schedule your administrative license suspension hearing (ALS hearing). Failure to schedule this hearing within 10 days will result in the immediate suspension of your license 30 days after your arrest date. This will occur regardless of whether you are actually found guilty of DUI in criminal court. This is why it is essential to act quickly and consult an attorney.

A Van Nuys DUI lawyer can actually schedule your DMV hearing for you and can represent you at the hearing in order to help you avoid license suspension or revocation. The benefit of professional legal counsel at your DMV hearing is also that it allows your attorney to begin preparing your case for criminal court.
