DMV Penalties

Protect Your Driving Privileges

Many people underestimate the common occurrence of driving license suspension in DUI cases. It is important to differentiate between the hearing for license suspension and the trial process for criminals. The former is an administrative process conducted by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
