Many have heard of the DMV APS Hearing. This stands for the Administrative Per Se Hearing held by the Department of Motor Vehicles. Here is the hearing at which you will have the ability to contest the suspension of your license; this hearing must be officially requested by you in 10 days of your arrest or you will lose the right to fight to your driving privileges. In some cases, the DMV hearing could be attended by us for you if for any reason you are unable to attend within the time allotted. Your case will be heard and determined by a DMV officer, not a judge. DMV hearings can take anywhere from one to two hours depending on the circumstances of your case. Your driving privileges will be revived if you’re successful in this hearing. You might potentially request a restricted driver’s license, which allows you to drive to and from work, if you’re unsuccessful. On the other hand, the restricted driver’s license request is created independent. What’s a DMV APS Hearing?
The DMV hearing is not held in a courtroom. It’s held in a DMV field office. While this is not the same as your court hearing, your lawyers can accompany you and offer representation, which we have found to be beneficial.
