Administrative Hearing Procedures in Long Beach

Long Beach DUI Attorney

Whenever you are arrested for a DUI and your license is taken by the arresting officer, you have a limited time period within which to contact the Department of Motor Vehicle's Driver's Safety Office and request an administrative hearing. Failure to request a hearing within ten calendar days following your arrest can result in an automatic suspension of your license.

The purpose of the hearing is to determine if your license will be permanently revoked, suspended or restricted. The hearing is separate from your criminal case, and the first step in addressing your DUI charges.

At the hearing, the circumstances of the arrest will be reviewed, including whether or not:

  • The arresting officer had reasonable cause to stop you
  • You were legally arrested
  • Your blood alcohol content was above 0.0%

Having legal representation at an administrative hearing can help prevent the loss of your license. A Long Beach criminal defense lawyer should be contacted as quickly as possible if you have been arrested for DUI to make sure the hearing takes place.
