Motor Vehicle Hearings Procedure

Alcohol and Drug Related Offenses

Following a stop for an alcohol and/or drug related driving offense you may be issued an Express Consent Affidavit and Notice of Revocation by the police officer or the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV).  If the arrest results in conviction for an alcohol related driving or other offense, additional actions may be taken by the DMV against your license.  Convictions for providing alcohol/marijuana to a minor or possessing alcohol/marijuana as a minor can result in the DMV revoking your license.  The DMV typically sends out notice by mail prior to taking any action against your license.

Following a restraint because of an alcohol related driving offense, you may be eligible to early reinstate with an interlock device. Please contact DMV about eligibility for early reinstatement and the length of time you will be required to have an interlock device.

Auto Insurance

Your license may be suspended for reasons related to insurance and SR-22 insurance. There are no driving privileges that can be granted while your driving privileges are revoked or suspended for insurance matters; however you may request a hearing in certain situations.
