Oakland DMV Hearing Attorney

DMV Hearings in East Bay, CA

When you are arrested and charged with DUI in Oakland, San Francisco, or anywhere in the Bay Area, you have 10 days to request a DMV hearing to challenge the automatic suspension of your driver's license. A DMV hearing is a crucial step towards regaining your freedom, avoiding a DUI conviction, and maintaining your lifestyle.

Immediately after you are arrested and charged with DUI in California, the arresting officer will confiscate your driver's license and issue you a temporary license for 30 days.

Failure to schedule your hearing within 10 days will result in an automatic driver's license suspension. An experienced Oakland DUI lawyer can ensure that you do not miss any critical deadlines for requesting a DMV hearing. Get help now! We proudly help clients in Oakland, Berkeley, Richmond, Concord, and the surrounding areas.

Let Us Advocate for You at the DMV Hearing!

At a DMV hearing, the Oakland DUI defense lawyers at the Law Office of Nabiel C. Ahmed will review all evidence against you, cross-examine any witnesses, and challenge the DMV's right to suspend your license. Even if you lose, a DMV hearing can be an invaluable tool for building your DUI defense, as it gives your attorney a chance to review the evidence and the prosecution's case against you. The prosecution also has a chance to decide whether to continue to press charges or dismiss your DUI charges altogether. If the case against you isn't solid, they may choose to dismiss your charges or offer you a plea deal.

If you win your DMV hearing, then you retain the right to keep your driver's license and your driving privileges. This alone can help you obtain a "better deal" with the prosecution and in many cases will lead to the dismissal of your DUI charges. It is important to remember, however, that winning your DMV hearing does not ensure that you will win your DUI case.

Other Situations That Require a DMV Hearing
