Stopping Automatic Suspension of Driver’s License for California DUI

Posted by Ronald D. Hedding | Aug 19, 2020

How Do You Stop Automatic Suspension of Your Driver's License if You Got a DUI in Los Angeles? This is a good question.  All of us need to commute.  We need to move around in Los Angeles, and once you get arrested for a DUI, typically, the police will take your driver's license away from you.

They will send it to the DMV along with a notification that you were arrested for a DUI, and then they'll send their police report and everything to the DMV in preparation for the DMV attempting to suspend your driver's license based on the DUI.

The way you stop the suspension first and foremost, and in the short term, is to hire an attorney like me who has been doing this for 26 years. I will immediately contact the DMV on your behalf.  I will let them know that you want to have a hearing related to any suspension, and I will ask for a stay on any suspension until we get that hearing.

As long as we do that within ten days of your arrest, the DMV will grant it.  To further ensure that we don't get lost in the shuffle, my firm will send a letter to the DMV via fax to prove that we sent it within ten days, indicating that we want a hearing.

Requesting a DMV Hearing Within 10 Days of Arrest

We don't want any suspension until we get our hearing, and as long as we do that in the right way, that will stop your license from being suspended.

As you can probably surmise, that's not going to be the end of it.  You're still going to have to have a hearing on the matter.  We will take care of the hearing for you once you retain The Hedding Law Firm to handle your DUI matter in Los Angeles.

We will cross-examine any witnesses that the hearing officer for the DMV calls to try to support their case.  We will object to any evidence that is not appropriate, and we will argue that your driver's license should not be suspended.

Present Evidence to Block Drivers License Suspension

If it makes sense under the circumstances of your case, we will try to present evidence to try to block your driver's license from being suspended.  This is something we will talk about at the first appointment.

We will discuss exactly what happened in your case, what your blood alcohol level was, how many drinks you had, why the police pulled you over, and a host of other issues and questions that will be critical to the successful outcome of your DUI case.
