In California a DUI conviction will result in 2 points on your permanent record. These points will remain for at least 10 years. A DMV Hearing Lawyer can help by requesting a hearing and challenging any suspensions that may be triggered by a DUI conviction. Examples of these include: APS suspensions, negligent operator suspensions for too many points, commercial revocations for truck driver cases, medical disqualifications, among many others. Once a suspension is initiated it will likely be shared with all other states in which a driver may be licensed. It is possible that a DUI could result in higher points if an accident is also involved. The DMV will usually send notice to the individual regarding their record if a high number of points have been acquired. Because the DMV treats DUI DWI and driving under the influence violations so seriously it makes sense to hire a lawyer to protect your rights.
