LOSS OF DRIVER’S LICENSE

December 8, 2015

AFTER DUI ARREST DMV AUTOMATICALLY REVOKES OR SUSPENDS YOUR DRIVER’S LICENSE.  

LOSS OF DRIVER'S LICENSEUpon a DUI Arrest, the arresting officer will take away your California driver’s license and mail it to the DMV.  However, the arresting officer will not take your driver’s license, if you are visiting from another state and drive on your out of state driver’s license.

Instead of hardcopy of your driver’s license, the arresting officer will issue a temporary driver’s license.  This document will allow you to drive for 30 days from the date of the arrest.   After 30 days your license will expire unless you request a hearing within 10 days from the day of the arrest.  Without a hearing request the DMV will quickly review the evidence and, usually, will summarily revoke or suspend your driver’s license.  It is extremely important to request a DMV hearing within the 10 days because it will assure a full evidentiary hearing that are often won.

The hearing can be requested by calling one of the local driver’s safety offices.  Here is the numbers of the office locations near Los Angeles county.

City of Commerce (323) 724-4000

Covina (626) 974-7137

Oxnard (805) 988-3050

San Bernardino (909) 383-7413

Van Nuys (818) 376-4217

You need to call the office closest to the location of arrest.  If you live far from the location of arrest, you can move the hearing to the office closest to you.

    Those numbers don’t count the times when a driver got the special deal after the summary suspension started. In those cases, drivers lost their licenses, but only for a few days or weeks until the deal was cut. Then everything returned to normal for their licenses, as if the DUI never happened.
