10 Days To Contact DMV for All Long Beach DUI Cases

You have ten calendar days from the day you were arrested to have your attorney to contact the El Segundo Driver Safety office to fight your case. If your DUI attorney fails to contact DMV within the first 10 days of the arrest, you give up your right to have a DMV hearing and your license will be automatically suspended. For a 2nd DUI in Long Beach, you’re looking at a maximum suspension of 2 years. For a third offense DUI in Long Beach, you are possibly looking at up to a 10 year license suspension.

Why Can’t I Contact DMV Myself?

Once you contact DMV, a hearing date will be made and your case will be assigned to a hearing officer. That hearing officer acts like your judge and jury when it comes to your case. What I mean by that, is that they preside over the hearing, listen to the evidence presented and decide if they’re going to suspend your license or not.

Unfortunately, some hearing officers are fair while others aren’t. Every DUI attorney working in California today has preferences over which hearing officers they prefer. Some, actually make an art of changing venues and asking for satellite offices to get the best hearing officer possible on your case. If you call and make your own appointment, your hearing officer will be chosen for you and there is no way to ask for another hearing officer. For your best chances to win, it’s best to have your Long Beach DUI lawyer to set the appointment themselves.

If this is your second DUI arrest within the last 10 years, you’ve got twice as much as stake. Not only are you looking at a possible 1 year loss of your drivers license, you are looking at possible jail time.

If you are still on probation while you obtained an additional DUI, you are in violation of the terms of your probation, and could seek additional jail time for the probation violation, which means your not only looking at the possible jail time as a result of your new DUI arrest, you’ll have to face the judge on your prior DUI for the probation violation as well.

Unlike some first DUI offenses, for a second DUI and third DUI case, the difference between having a DUI attorney represent you in court will make a drastic difference in the consequences of your DUI case.

If you have had 2 prior DUI convictions within the past 10 years and this is your 3rd DUI arrest, the statutory minimum jail time is 120 days. In additional to the jail time, you court could deem you a habitual DUI offender and subsequently suspend your drivers license to up to 10 years.

Thereby the consequences of a third DUI offense are SEVERE, but you must KNOW THIS, 120 days spent in actual jail and the 10 years suspension of your drivers license, can be avoided with an experienced DUI attorney who is dedicated to keep you out of jail and behind the wheel.

I’m Worried About Being Able To Afford a Long Beach DUI Attorney.

Well Contacting DMV Isn’t That Difficult, Why Do I Need a Long Beach DUI Lawyer to do That?

Well first, DMV will instruct you to contact Mandatory Actions at the DMV in Sacramento on a “916” phone number.  Getting a hold of someone at mandatory actions is a nightmare.  I’ve personally spent hours on hold or calling and recalling, only to encounter a busy signal.

Once you do get a hold of someone, you’ll be redirected to call another office.  Finally, when you get to the right place, it is likely a DMV employee will attempt to convince you that you have NO WAY to win your DMV hearing.

If you’re persistent, you’ll then be required to set up a DMV appointment.  DMV often times makes this “appointment” sound like a over-the-phone interview, while it is really an important legal proceeding, the loss of which is result in the suspension of your right to drive in California.

Once you’ve set your DMV hearing, the hearing officer is chosen and it is nearly impossible to change the DMV hearing date and/or location without a legal cause for a continuance.  Instead, save your self the trouble and let your experienced Long Beach DUI Attorney contact DMV on your behalf.

For the Best Chances of Winning Your DMV Hearing, it is Better to Allow the Long Beach DUI Lawyer you Hire Contact DMV on your Behalf.

Any Long Beach DUI Attorney, experienced with DUI DMV hearings will have preferences as to the time, location, and hearing officer who conducts your DMV hearing.  In addition, once the hearing date is set, subpoenas for evidence such as patrol videos, witness, dispatch tapes, and breath machine logs & records must be issued 20-30 days prior to the DMV date.

Setting your own DMV hearing may hurt your chances of obtaining such evidence for the DMV date as well as hurt your chances of winning the DMV hearing.  In short, let the Long Beach DUI Lawyer you hire contact DMV on your behalf.
