DMV Hearing Request & Form

DMV ADMIN PER SE ADMINISTRATIVE HEARING REQUEST FORM FOR
SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY OFFENSES

If you wish to contact the DMV for a review of the  suspension action against your driver's license you may use the information below to write a letter to them.  This must be sent within the first 10 days of the arrest.  Look at the temporary license that the officer gave you (the pink sheet) and you will find the date at the top that is considered day #1 of the 10 days that you have to submit this hearing request.  IT REALLY SHOULD BE DONE!!  It can always be cancelled;  but if you don't request it and later find out that there was actually a huge error.... well sorry you are too late,  you have already lost by failing to request the review.  Simply Copy and Paste the information below into your own letter and then fax it to DMV.  Make sure that your fax provides you with a proof of receipt.  You can mail it if that is your only choice but it's is more difficult to have a proof of receipt.  Of course if you have an attorney within the first 10 days then I expect that the attorney will handle this process for you.

To whom it may concern:

This letter is a request for an In-Person Admin per Se hearing in San Luis Obispo, California. I was arrested for an alcohol related offense.

I am requesting that the department's evidence be sent to me at the earliest opportunity.  I am also requesting that the department issue a stay on the suspension of my driver's license pending the hearing in this matter.

Also for my records can you please send me a temporary driver's license or in the alternative a letter from you acknowledging the stay on the suspension of my license.

Thank you for your assistance.

Very truly yours,

By typing and mailing this letter you are asking DMV for a hearing and for a new temporary license so you may continue to drive pending the outcome of the hearing.

The DMV is pretty good at getting these temporary licenses sent out however your request is often part of a very big stack of similar requests!   If you have not receive your new temporary driver's license several days prior to the expiration of the 30 day temporary license, I advise you to call DMV at the above phone number in order to inquire if the DMV received your hearing request and if your new temporary license is on its way.

DO NOT DRIVE IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A VALID LICENSE.
