Charged With A Crime? It Doesn’t Mean You’re Guilty.

Colorado Department of Motor Vehicles, DMV Hearings

On Behalf of | Aug 22, 2015 | Department of Motor Vehicles |

Hearings before the Colorado Department of Motor Vehicles, also known as the DMV, occur before hearing officers employed by the Colorado Department of Revenue. This is the same organization which oversees Automobile Dealer licensing and the Division of Gaming, among others. These hearing officers have the job of determining whether your driver’s license should be revoked or suspended, for violation of Colorado law. We usually see hearings when someone gets a DUI, accumulates too many points, or wants a restricted license to drive to and from work. Read more about DMV License Hearings.

DUI or DWAI Revocations of Your Driving License

If you are driving in Jefferson or Adams County and are convicted of a DUI or DWAI, you may face an administrative DMV hearing for your license. Excess blood alcohol content is responsible for many of these hearings directly, rather than your driving attributes. In many cases, a drinking and driving conviction will result in suspension or revocation of your driver’s license, so always take an attorney with you who understands the procedures of the DMV hearing division.

Point Suspensions of Your Colorado Driver’s License

With too many tickets, your license to drive can be suspended in Arapahoe or Douglas County. Most adult drivers will lose their driver’s license when they accumulate 12 points. Points drop off at regular intervals and point limits must be precisely measured based on limitations at the time of ticketing by police officers across Colorado.

Red or Restricted Licenses in Colorado

In some cases, the Department of Motor Vehicles will grant a Denver driver a Red or Restricted drivers license to drive to and from work, school, and for medical purposes. Each person has different limitations based on what a hearing officer determines. A lawyer can increase your chances of getting to drive while under suspension or revocation.

Your Colorado driver’s license is important for maintaining employment and getting your family where they need to go. Children need to be driven to school and medical appointments. With these important consequences, don’t let your license suspension just happen. Defend your right to drive by contacting a traffic attorney from the O’Malley Law Office, P.C.
