DMV Hearings

If you were arrested for DUI, your driver’s license was revoked pending the outcome of your case. Recovering your license is a totally separate process from the criminal case against you; you will need to appear at a Colorado Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) hearing to retain or reinstate your license.

It is important to retain a lawyer to help you do this, as the state will present evidence at this hearing that may also be used against you in the criminal DUI proceedings. The DMV hearing is a preview of the criminal case.

  • Are under 21
  • Had a blood alcohol content higher than .08 (.02 if the driver was under 21)
  • Refused BAC testing or drove on a commercial driver’s license (CDL) with a BAC of .04 or more
