If you are convicted of drunk driving in California, the Department of Motor Vehicles will suspend your license. You can also get your license suspended for refusing to take a test to determine your blood alcohol level – or for failing such a test.
But what do you do to protect your license? How do you get it back if it gets suspended?
At the Law Offices of Derek P. Wisehart, in Visalia, we can help you protect your driving privileges – or regain your license if it has been suspended or revoked. Call our office at 559-429-5630 or 800-742-6392 to learn more about how to respond to your particular challenges.
What Can You Do To Protect Your License – Or To Get It Back?
If you are arrested for DUI in California, the police will notify the Department of Motor Vehicles. You only have 10 days to preserve your right to a DMV hearing and postpone an automatic DMV suspension if you tested above .08 blood alcohol content.
Our firm can guide you in taking the steps you need to assert your rights and fight to keep your driving privileges. We can assist you not only in the administrative process within the DMV but also in superior court.
Even if your license is suspended or revoked, we can work with you to get it back as soon as it is legally possible. It may be possible, for example, to obtain a hardship license so that you can still drive to work. We can also advise you how an ignition interlock device can allow you to legally drive sooner.

In short, we can assist you with both DMV licensing hearings and in making an aggressive criminal defense against DUI charges. If you are facing license suspension, we can seek to challenge the suspension, as well as contest the criminal charges. Similarly, if you need to get your license back – or at least get a temporary, restricted license – we know how to move that process forward.
