DMV Information

If you have a DUI arrest, there is a DMV hearing in addition to the Criminal Court Trial.

If the DMV offers me the right to have a hearing, and I am already scheduled to appear in court for a DUI charge, doesn't the one take care of the other? It is part of due process, guaranteed by our Constitution and California State Law, that you may appear to defend yourself at each. You cannot be deprived of property without the ability to defend yourself. Due process of law entitles you to a notice of the action that the DMV intends to take against you and your driving privilege, and the chance to appear at the hearing.

What is the difference between a DMV hearing and a court trial for DUI?

One is an administrative (DMV) proceeding regarding whether or not you can keep your license. They will examine the circumstances that led to your arrest, but will not be involved with whether you are guilty or innocent regarding the criminal charges.

Some of the items that will be examined:

Were you told by the arresting officer that if you refused to submit to a test of your blood, breath, or urine, that your license would be suspended for a year or revoked for two or three years?

Was there reasonable cause for the arresting officer to believe you were driving in violation of Vehicle Code Section 23140 (under 21 with blood alcohol of .05 or higher), Section 23152 (adult with .08 blood alcohol or higher), or Section 23153 (adult with .08 blood alcohol or higher or drugs where an injury was caused)?

Were you arrested?

Did you refuse to complete a blood test, breath test, or a urine test after an officer asked you to submit to one?

Frequently asked Questions:

If I was found guilty of a DUI in a criminal court, can I get a restricted license?

Many times a person with a standard license (non-commercial) can obtain a restricted use license after you show that you have enrolled in one of the many DUI treatment programs, have filed the financial responsibility form (SR-22) and paid a reissue fee of $125. However, there is a mandatory 30-day suspension regardless of the other measures mentioned. Generally the restricted license will allow you to drive to and from the treatment program and to and from work. A reissue fee of $100 may apply if you are under the age of 21.

What happens if I receive a 2nd DUI?

If you have a second DUI charge within a 10 year period of time from your first DUI charge, you may still be granted a restricted license. You will need to enroll in a DUI treatment program, then submit proof, file a new SR-22 financial responsibility form, and pay a $100 fee to re-issue the license.

What if I get another DUI?

3rd offenses or more cancels any chance to obtain a restricted license for a period of 10 years from the first offense. This is decided on a case by case basis.

How can I find a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) Program as ordered by the court?

What is aexpungement?

Expungement is a process where the legal record of an arrest or a criminal conviction is "sealed," or erased in the eyes of the law. When a conviction is expunged, the process may also be referred to as "setting aside a criminal conviction." The obtainability of an expungement, and the procedure for getting an arrest or conviction expunged, will be based according to the state or county in which the arrest or conviction occurred.

Subsequently the expungement process is complete, an arrest or a criminal conviction ordinarily does not need to be disclosed by the person who was arrested or convicted. For example, when filling out an application for a job or apartment, an applicant whose arrest or conviction has been expunged does not need to disclose that arrest or conviction. In most cases, no record of an expunged arrest or conviction will appear if a potential employer, educational institution, or other company conducts a public records inspection or background search of an individual's criminal record.

An expungement allows you to reopen your criminal case, set aside the conviction and dismiss the case. As a result, your criminal record will no longer show the conviction. However the expungement will continue to appear on your record. It is important to note that the expungement does not clear from your record the fact that you were arrested or that charges were filed.

Testimonials: "our lovely clients"

My son has had multiple felony and misdemeanor violations in the last 8 years, he's also spent many years going through the system. He was finally attempting to change his life and move forward, he had a job in line as a Drug Rehab Counselor but there was 1 last case pending from 2 years ago which was putting his life on hold. So I decided to step in and look for an attorney, I searched online and came across the Bauman Law Firm, the staff was helpful and knowledgable and invested time and heard my concerns. The case was DISMISSED and my son gets a fresh start...Thanks Ed! I hope I don't have to call you again, but I will recommend you to anyone I know. - Jeff W. Arizona

i was searching online for a good attorney and i called lots of places but it seemed like everyone was only looking to make money. i have 2 tickets 1 for stop sign and 1 for crossing a double yellow line on the freeway. i have not had a ticket in 16 years and all of a sudden i get 2 in 1 month. i called their office and was told i can take traffic school for 1 and hire them for my other so i did and finally got a call yesterday that my ticket had been cleaned off my record! i did not know what that means so a rep explained that i will not get any points and i get my money back from the court! Thanks! i will recommend you to people who have the same problem i did. - Robert M. Los Angeles
