What To Expect
Preparing for Your DMV Hearing
Your hearing will likely be held in a private room with a DMV officer (neither
a lawyer nor a judge). If you retain an attorney, your attorney can be
present with you at this hearing.
Prior to the hearing, your attorney will secure a copy of the evidence.
In some cases, even missing paperwork or missing components of the evidence
can result in a successful DMV hearing for the defendant.
At the DMV hearing, you do also have the option to bring in your own witnesses,
to give your own testimony, and present other evidence. The DMV hearing
is informal, but can take up to 1-2 hours.
