After a California DUI arrest, you only have 10 DAYS to request a DMV hearing to avoid having your California driver's license automatically suspended!
Don't miss your opportunity to demand due process from the DMV. You have a right to an administrative hearing before DMV can consider a suspension, but if you do not make the request in time, DMV can suspend your license just based on the information provided by law enforcement.
The best way to send your DMV hearing request is by fax because you will have proof that the fax was received by DMV before the 10th day. You should submit your faxed request to the office nearest your arrest location (see Driver Safety Offices list below).
Make sure your request contains the following information:
Dear Motor Vehicle Representative:
I, ________________________________, hereby request a hearing regarding
the suspension of my drivers license#________________________________
I was arrested on __________________________________(insert date),
My Phone Number is: ______________________________________
My Address is:___________________________________________
