Driver's License Suspension in San Diego
Get help from our experienced defense attorneys!
When a California driver is arrested for
drunk driving, their driver's license is automatically suspended after 30 days.
You will be given a temporary license in many cases that is good for 30
days. The driver has ten days to contest the suspension with the DMV for
a hearing called 'Administration License Suspension' in order to receive an extension of a temporary license.
The DMV Hearing
A license suspension is an 'Administrative Sanction' and not a
punishment hearing. It has no effect on criminal proceedings. Due to many
cases at the DMV, the hearing could be postponed for as much as thirty
days. This can be a tedious and confusing procedure. Most people have
no idea what to present at any DMV hearing to avoid the loss of their
driver's license, so it's important that you enlist the help of
a knowledgeable lawyer.

hearings, and are very familiar with all aspects of driver's license
suspensions, and how to fight. If you are in this predicament, don't
