Understanding the DMV Safety Administrative Hearing

In almost all cases in which a ticket is issued to a person who is believed to have committed some type of traffic violation, the DMV's order for discretionary action against that person's driving privileges, will not come before the allowance of an administrative hearing at the DMV.

It is during this safety administrative hearing that you (as the person to whom a ticket was issued) will have the opportunity to contest the charges that have been made against them. Upon a formal review of the citation issued to you, the DMV will then make a final decision as to how your case will proceed.

It is important to act quickly when scheduling a safety administrative hearing at the DMV, as you have a very limited amount of time to do so. In fact, failure to act swiftly could lead to an automatic – and unchangeable – suspension of your license. Therefore, having a legal representative on your side to aid in your defense is the best way to ensure that you do not lose your driving privileges and the safety hearing goes as smoothly as planned. Whether DMV action is upheld, modified or rescinded (set aside) will depend entirely on how the proceedings of your safety hearing play out.
