What You Should Know About DMV Hearings

If you are arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) or while ability impaired (DWAI), there are two separate legal processes that affect your driving privileges. There is a criminal process, which involves criminal charges and criminal penalties, like jail time and high fines. Separately, there is an administrative process managed by the Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV), which decides penalties like revoking your driver’s license.

Under Colorado law, the DMV can revoke your driver's license if you took breath or blood test and had a BAC of 0.08 or higher within 2 hours of driving, or if you refused to take a breath or blood test altogether. Once you have failed or refused a test, you have 7 days from when you are arrested to request a hearing with the DMV to challenge the automatic suspension of your driver’s license. Since blood tests must be evaluated at a lab, you could have 7 days from receiving the letter from the DMV indicating you failed a blood test.

The Importance of DMV Hearings

The DMV hearing is a crucial moment for you to challenge the pending decision to suspend your driver’s license, which can last up to 9 months for a first-time DUI offense. DMV administrators are not part of the criminal justice system, so they may not be concerned about the legality of your stop or the accuracy of your blood or breath tests. Instead, they will be more focused on why the suspension would be unjustified or place you in undue hardship.

For example, your license should not be automatically suspended if it would cause you to:

  • Lose your job
  • Skip necessary medical care
  • Jeopardize your child custody rights
  • Miss important educational courses

An attorney can explore any possible legal defenses and arguments based on the individual facts of your case. From our insightful position, we can narrow in on arguments that should best influence the DMV administrators or hearing officers.

Do not hesitate call our firm at (720) 809-8310 for high-quality representation.
