A Guide to DMV Hearings

Because no person shall be deprived of property without due process of law, it is still necessary to undergo a DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) hearing despite the fact that you have already been scheduled to appear in court for the DUI (Driving Under the Influence) charge. DMV hearings then are simply an administrative proceeding involving your right to either keep your driver’s license or for the Department of Motor Vehicle to revoke it, it has nothing to do of whether or not you are guilty of a criminal act. There is a difference in the conduct of hearing between the DUI and DMV hearings in how it is governed and conducted for while DUI hearings will deal on whether you are guilt or not of the charges, the DMV hearings will check the circumstances that led to the charge and determine if your license will be suspended or be given back. The circumstances checked on by DMV hearings are your behavior towards your arresting officer and your lawful due of a rightly conduct at the time of arrest.

If there are different findings between the DUI and DMV hearings, the DUI ruling will be followed in case of the acquittal. In case the DUI acquits the driver and the DMV does not, then the DMV will have to review and revise the suspension order so that it will have the same ruling as the DUI acquittal. The situation is not the same with acquittal if the arrested person is pronounced guilty of the act by the DUI court. If the DMV rules in favor of your keeping your license, then it will stand despite the guilty ruling of the DUI, but in this case your license will be under restrictions.

Under the restricted license, the DUI felon would still be allowed after a mandatory thirty day suspension, to drive under restricted rules. In this restriction the guilty person is to undergo a DUI treatment program which includes the filing of a proof of financial responsibility, and then a reissuing fee is charge to have the restrictions removed to have your full license back.
What I Can Teach You About Hearings

The targets of this restricted license are those who have a commercial driver’s license and at the time of the incident the felon is not operating a commercial vehicle. Since the driver was not driving a commercial vehicle when the incident happened, then he will still be allowed to drive to and from work, and to and from the DUI treatment program.
The Path To Finding Better Options

For a second DUI offense after a ten year period has elapsed from the first offense, then he can still acquire a restricted license after submitting all the requirements for a DUI treatment program and other pertinent documents that were submitted the first time. But this time around, the driver this restriction would include an alcohol program.

Any driver with a third or subsequent DUI offense within ten years is not entitled to apply for any type of restricted license anymore.
