How a lawyer can get your license back after a San Diego California DUI arrest

San Diego California DUI lawyers are often asked after someone is arrested for San Diego California drunk driving or DUI: What happens next?

A San Diego California police officer is required by law to immediately forward a copy of the completed notice of suspension or revocation form and any driver license taken into possession, with a sworn report to the California DMV under Vehicle Code Section 13380.

San Diego California DMV automatically conducts an administrative review that includes an examination of the officer's report, the suspension or revocation order, and any test results. The suspension or revocation is almost always upheld during the administrative review, so your San Diego California DUI lawyer may request a hearing to contest the suspension or revocation.

Your San Diego California DUI lawyer must request a hearing from the DMV within 10 days of receipt of the suspension or revocation order. Your San Diego California DUI lawyer will see if he can contend there is no basis for the suspension or revocation; if successful, the action will be set aside. You will be notified by the Department of Motor Vehicles in writing only if the suspension or revocation is set aside or suspended.
