Avoid License Suspension

At a DMV hearing, the future of your license will be determined at a DMV office — not at a criminal court. The issue at the hearing is whether your driver’s license will be suspended after being arrested for DUI in or around Bakersfield, California. After an arrest, you will be issued a temporary license for 30 days and you must request a hearing within 10 days. Otherwise, your driver’s license will automatically be suspended once your temporary license expires.

How to Win at a DMV Hearing in Bakersfield

Just because you were arrested for DUI does not mean you were guilty, or that the arresting officer acted within the law. There are many issues that the hearing officer must consider.

These include questions such as:

  • Did the arresting officer have probable cause to believe you were driving under the influence?
  • Did they have a lawful cause to arrest you?
  • Were you driving with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or greater (more than the legal state limit)?
  • Was there a search warrant?
  • If you allegedly refused to submit to the breath or blood DUI test, were you told that your driving privileges would be suspended for one year or revoked for up to three?
  • Did you willfully refuse to submit to the sample?

After these issues are considered, the DMV hearing officer will either suspend your driver’s license or reverse the suspension.

Other Defense Strategies for DUI

One of the most common defense strategies for DUI is that you weren’t driving. Maybe you were sleeping it off in your car. If you were arrested for DUI and didn’t drive or had no intent to drive, being arrested for DUI is unlawful.

Perhaps you were arrested at an illegal DUI or driver’s license checkpoint. Even if you were driving under the influence, if the arrest checkpoint didn’t follow legal requirements, you could win at your DMV hearing in Bakersfield.

Other possible defenses include:

  • No probable cause to detain you for DUI
  • No 15-minute observation period
  • Equipment malfunction
