DMV Hearings in California

In typical cases when an individual is subject to disciplinary action against their privilege to drive the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has the right to revoke an individual’s license. However, a person has the right to a hearing in-order to present their case in the best light. If you have been subject to disciplinary action against your privilege to drive, you have 10 days from the moment you were notified to request a hearing with the DMV. Once you receive the notification you may request a hearing either by telephone or written request.

While you are not required to be have an attorney present during a DMV hearing, you do have the right to have an attorney and seek legal counsel for the matter at hand. It is because of this that you should contact a Kern County traffic ticket attorney today to receive the best possible outcome in your DMV hearing. At Bigger & Harman, APC. our attorneys can guide you through the entire process and navigate you through the nuances of a DMV hearing.

Negligent Operator Treatment System (NOTS)

This is a point based system implemented by the DMV to count the number of operator infractions an individual has garnered. Anytime you are cited with a traffic ticket conviction and/or when a driver is noted as responsible, at fault, or a contributing factor to an accident. All of these can add up and result in disciplinary action against your license, which also includes commercial driver’s license who are at times subject to harsher penalties. Furthermore, points garnered out-of-state are subject to review under your home states point system.

While the amount of points someone garners is subject to the conditions of the offense, the DMV focuses on the amount of points someone has garnered within a certain time frame. This results in three levels of notice that are incurred upon a person’s driving privilege. Check out the State of California’s Department of Motor Vehicles website for a complete list of the applicable points that can be added to your license.

The three levels include:

  • Level I – A warning letter for 2 points within 12 months, 3 points within 24 months, or 6 points within 36 months.
  • Level II – A notice of intent to suspend for 3 points within 12 months, 5 points within 24 months, or 7 points within 36 months.
  • Level III – Suspension/probation for 4 points within 12 months, 6 points within 24 months, or 8 points within 36 months.
