California DUI / DMV hearings are presided by a California Driver Safety Officer (California DMV hearing officer) rather than a real California judge. The California Driver Safety Officer offers California DUI arrest evidence in the form of documents and sometimes witnesses.
A California DMV Driver Safety Officer offers the California drunk driving / DUI police report, DMV records, California DUI alcohol reports and the important California DUI officer's sworn statement entitled a "DS 367."
With no Fifth Amendment right at the hearing, your California DUI / DMV attorney usually will not want you to be present at the California DMV hearing since the California Driver Safety Officer can call you as a witness and force you to testify against yourself if you ill-advisedly appear.
California DUI lawyers' defenses at a California APS hearing are specialized and technical, more so than in California criminal court.
Frequent California DUI / DMV proof problems - as well as legal, procedural and bureaucratic obstacles - are possible grounds for setting aside the California suspension.
A California DUI / DMV attorney has just 10 CALENDAR DAYS after the California DUI arrest to call the California DMV Driver Safety Office to timely demand a hearing. You waive your right to a California DMV hearing after the 10 day deadline expires.
