Oceanside DMV Hearing Attorney

Administrative Per Se Suspension

Southern California has the highest number of licensed drivers than any other region in the country. Driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs can result in injury or a fatality in the Oceanside area. As a result, anyone who is charged with DUI in California will face severe penalties.

The first of these penalties is administrative per se (APS) license suspension, which occurs when a police officer confiscates a motorist's driver's license upon arresting them for DUI. The driver must request a DMV hearing within 10 days of their arrest in order to fight the suspension and obtain a restricted license.

What happens at an administrative DMV hearing?

The purpose of a DMV hearing is to request a reversal of your APS license suspension. You will attend your hearing at your local DMV, where an administrative judge (not a criminal judge) will preside over your hearing. You or your attorney will present your case to restore your license, or to request a restricted license until your criminal DUI hearing is complete. Your chances of success are much better when you are represented by a skilled lawyer, so be sure to speak with an Oceanside attorney from the Law Firm of Richard L. Duquette right away.
