Many people falsely think that if they are accused of having a 0.08% or greater BAC, either by blood or breathalyzer testing, losing the DMV Hearing is a foregone conclusion. Worse, some people (including attorneys!) believe that court representation is sufficient, when exactly the opposite is true. The fact is, 95% of the time the court proceeding, regardless of the outcome, has no effect on your DMV Proceeding; even if you win your court case, you can still lose your DMV Hearing and face the prospect of losing your driver’s license and seeing your auto insurance double or dropped.
If you have prior DUI conviction(s) or adverse DMV ruling(s) against you, it is even more important to fight the current DMV Proceeding against you, because a prior—while not relevant at the hearing itself—can result in harsher punishment should you lose.
Since a new law was passed in 2008, the DMV Process has become even more complicated. As of January 1, 2009, if you are on probation for a DUI, and you are arrested / cited for a new DUI, you must request 2 separate DMV hearings!
