Protect Your Driving Privileges

Only a handful of people realize that suspension of driving licenses is common in DUI case arrests. They may also feel that hearing for license suspension is a part of the DUI criminal process. However, the hearing process for driving license suspension is entirely different from the trial process for criminals. Typically it is handled by the Department of Motor Vehicles and is an administrative process.
