Savannah DMV Hearings Attorney
Legal Assistance for DMV Hearings in Georgia
DMV hearings, sometimes called ALS (Administrative License Suspension) hearings, are administrative proceedings held to determine whether or not an individual should have their driving privileges suspended after they have been charged with a DUI. DMV hearings are held in the Department of Motor Vehicles, completely separate and in addition to criminal proceedings.
A DMV hearing looks to address the following key issues:
- Whether or not you took breath & blood tests
- If the tests were administered correctly
- Whether you refused to take either a blood or breath test
- Whether you took and passed other field sobriety tests
- If there was reasonable cause for law enforcement to believe you were driving drunk
- Whether your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was .08% or higher (for adults), 02% or higher (for drivers under 21) or .04% or higher (for commercial drivers)
- If you were you arrested following specific legal procedures
- Whether you caused an accident involving injury or death
