Santa Barbara DMV Hearing Lawyers
We Can Represent You During Your DMV Hearing
After being arrested for DUI, you are given only 10 days to schedule a
hearing at the DMV and regain your driving privileges. This process is
purely administrative and is separate from the
DUI criminal process.
Appel & Morse can offer legal counsel during your administrative hearing and also represent
you if your DUI case goes to trial.
Contact us today to learn more about the next steps moving forward. Remember you
only have 10 days to fight!
The Process for Reinstating Your License
The arresting officer will usually issue a “Notice of Suspension,”
which also acts as a temporary license that is valid for 30 days. Remember,
however, that you must schedule the hearing within 10 days after being
arrested; otherwise, your license will automatically be suspended. If
you win at your DMV hearing, you can regain your driving privileges.
You must also fulfill these requirements:
- Enrollment in DUI school
- Submission of the SR-22 insurance form
- Payment of the $125 reinstatement fee
- Installation of an Ignition Interlock Device
Our Santa Barbara DUI attorneys are prepared to walk you through the steps
of the DMV hearing. These appointments are more informal, and you will
have the chance to provide evidence and tell your side of the story with
regards to the evening. We can advise you on how to handle this process
and ensure that the evidence uncovered places you in a favorable light.
