DMV hearings are not San Diego DUI court actions, so San Diego County public defender attorneys cannot and will not handle them.
A San Diego DMV lawyer must serve a written Request for Hearing & for Discovery within 10 days of one’s DUI arrest.
One waives the right to a hearing after the 10 day deadline expires.
If you must contact DMV yourself, although not advised as they are not “on your side,” please ask for the name of the person you speak with. Please do not discuss the reasons why you are contesting the suspension. The San Diego Driver Safety Office is located at 9174 Sky Park Avenue, Suite 200, San Diego (858 627-3901 or fax 858 627-3925).
