San Diego DUI criminal defense lawyers understand how folks need their license. A DMV suspension hearing is a mini-DUI trial, with unique San Diego DMV rules, San Diego DMV laws and San Diego DMV procedures. A State paid San Diego Driver Safety Officer offers evidence in the form of documents and/or witnesses. The Driver Safety Officer offers the San Diego drunk driving / DUI police report, DMV records, San Diego DUI alcohol reports and the important San Diego DUI officer’s sworn statement entitled a “DS 367.”
A San Diego DUI / DMV defense attorney’s defenses at an APS hearing are specialized and technical, more so than in criminal court. Because of the peculiar nature of San Diego DUI / DMV hearings and the absence of an independent San Diego DUI judge to offer some protection, you are strongly advised not to try to represent yourself.
Your San Diego DUI / DMV attorney has just 10 CALENDAR DAYS after the DUI arrest to call the San Diego DMV Driver Safety Office to timely demand a hearing. You waive your right to a hearing after the 10 day deadline is up.
