Ventura DUI Lawyer for DMV Hearings
When you are arrested for DUI in Ventura County, the arresting officer will nearly always take your permanent driver’s license and give you a “pink sheet” for a temporary license. This temporary license will expire thirty days after the date of your arrest, leaving you unable to lawfully drive. It is possible to avoid suspension of your driver’s license, but only if you request a DMV hearing within ten days of your arrest – and only if you present a successful defense at the DMV hearing.
If you are within the ten-day window and have yet to request your hearing, Ventura DUI attorney David Lehr will request the hearing for you free of charge. Get in touch with us now so that we can request your DMV hearing immediately. If you have already scheduled your DMV hearing, call us to request a free consultation to learn how we can help protect your driver’s license at the DMV.
Protect Your Driving Privileges by Requesting a DMV Hearing
Once you request a DMV hearing, the DMV will send you a “white sheet” that replaces your “pink sheet” temporary driver’s license. Your white sheet will allow you to continue to drive pending the outcome of your DMV hearing. During the hearing, our DUI defense attorney will present all available arguments for restoring your permanent driver’s license. We have won DMV hearings where our clients’ BAC levels were as high as 0.28%.
No matter what else that you do, make sure that you request a DMV hearing within ten days of your arrest. We have had clients who called us after their ten-day period was up. We won their court cases, but they still lost their driver’s licenses to the DMV.
