Negligent Operator Hearings


One of the common types of hearings is for drivers who get too many points. If you get four points in one year, six in two years, or eight in three years, the DMV will mail you a notice stating that unless you take action, your license will automatically be suspended. Do not ignore this notice! You have limited time to set a hearing contesting the action. Your best bet is to hire a good attorney who specializes in this area of law. At the Choyce Law Firm, we have a very high success rate at saving licenses in negligent operator hearings. Contact us at and we will explain the process. Or call us at (415) 701-1500 or (707) 422-1202 and speak directly to an attorney.

Medical Evaluation Hearings


These hearings are common among drivers who have been referred to the DMV, usually by a police officer or a a doctor with a concern. These hearings are just as important as any, because the end result can be a summary indefinite license suspension. It is important that you have a good attorney who specializes in this area of law, who can obtain the proper information and work in your best interest to save your license. Even in extreme situations, sometimes there are simply limits on driving that need to be addressed, and a licensee should be able to drive under certain conditions. Other times, the licensee was the victim of a bad report from a police officer or doctor, and the case of the licensee needs to be properly presented to the hearing officer in order to save the license. Whatever the situation, you can count on our attorneys to guide you through the process and work to save your license. Email an attorney now for more information or call to speak to an attorney at (415) 701-1500 or (707) 422-1202.

Administrative "Per-Se" Suspension Hearings


A driver stopped for DUI is usually the subject of these hearings. If you do not contact the DMV within ten days to set a hearing, your license will be automatically suspended after your 30 day temporary license expires. You should always set a hearing within the time limit, or you may simply suffer the suspension without recourse. If you have missed your hearing scheduling deadline, we can submit a late request on your behalf, and the DMV grants late hearings under certain circumstances. You may also request a "stay" on your license, meaning your license will remain valid at least until you have your hearing. The hearings are very technical in nature, and the seemingly slightest oversight by a police officer may lead to a "set-aside". A set-aside means exactly that, the DMV "sets aside" the action and you suffer no administrative license suspension.
