Van Nuys DMV for a recent DUI
Question: What do I need to have prepared for my dmv hearing in Van Nuys DMV for a recent DUI? I am about to lose my drivers license for a year and that will totally crush me! I need my license for work and school and for everything else in life. Is there anything I can do to convince them not to suspend my drivers license just because I made a mistake? If I get a letter from my employer that says I am a good worker and a good driver and need my license for work or else I will be fired will that help at the hearing? How can they expect me to make money if I can’t even drive to work.
Answer: In short, you should hire a good DUI defense attorney to handle this hearing. Generally speaking, the hearing officers are not concerned with how a driver license suspension will impact your personal and professional life. They are in the business of suspending driver licesnses, and no one is ever happy when that happens…well…maybe the DMV is, but the licensee’s certainly are not.
The best way to avoid getting your driver license suspended is to hire a good DUI attorney that is familiar with the case law that can help fight the DMV suspension. I am that person. I am one of the guys in the state of California that other Attorneys ask for advice on how to win their DMV hearing, or DUI court case for that matter.
There are other things that can be done in the event of a license suspension to lessen the severity of it (ie. restricted license or critical needs license), but that is a secondary action. First step is to try to win the DMV hearing altogether!
Also, please clarify why you would have a 1 year suspension. Is it a 2nd or more DUI? Are you under 21? Is there a probation violation issue involved?
