A DMV hearing is part of the process you will go through if you are arrested for a DUI. Once you are arrested, an officer will take away your license and you will later be issued a temporary pink license.
Once you are issued a temporary pink license, you have 10 days to set a DMV hearing. If you fail to set a DMV hearing, your driver’s license will automatically be suspended.
A DUI arrest will trigger both a DMV hearing to determine if your license will be suspended, as well as charges in criminal court. The sole purpose of the DMV hearing is for the DMV to take away your license. The outcome of your DUI charges will be determined in criminal court.
A DMV hearing allows you to challenge the evidence being used against you, in order to keep your license. This is beneficial because it helps strengthen your defenses in criminal court.
