DUI & Driver's License Suspension

Fighting the Penalties for Drunk Driving in Ventura County

In an effort to prevent further traffic violationsas well as to protect other motorists on the roadCalifornia requires that some traffic offenses result in the confiscation and suspension of your license. The following is a list of a few of the traffic violations that will cause license suspension:

  • Driving under the influence (DUI)
  • Reckless driving
  • Vehicular manslaughter
  • Vandalism

Other less common offenses that could result in a suspension include fleeing the scene of an accident or failure to report an accident. Get legal counsel immediately if you are facing any charges that affect the status of your license.

What to Do if Your License Has Been Suspended

If your driver's license has been suspended for one of these or another criminal offense, there are still options for legally operating a vehicle available to you. Contact a Ventura County criminal defense lawyer from The Law Offices of Douglas H. Ridley today and request a DMV hearing within 10 days of your suspension. By petitioning the DMV, you could obtain a hardship license that allows you restricted driving privileges until your court hearing. At that point, it is vital that you have the representation of an experienced and aggressive defense lawyer so that your license is not irrevocably suspended due to a wrongful conviction.
