What is an MVD License Hearing?
Under Arizona Law, the MVD has the right to administratively suspend your
driving privileges in the event that you are arrested for DUI or upon
refusing a chemical test. This suspension is automatic unless you request
an executive hearing with the MVD within 15 days of your arrest. An MVD
hearing is an informal meeting in which you will be given the opportunity
to appeal your suspension. This hearing will be different depending on
the unique circumstances of your situation.
There are three different types of MVD hearings in Arizona:
Administrative Per Se Hearing: During this type of hearing, the MVD will address whether or not the officer
had sufficient reason to believe you were out of control of your vehicle,
whether your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was over the legal limit
of 0.08%, whether the administered chemical tests were accurate, and what
type of DUI charges you face.
Implied Consent Hearing: This hearing deals with chemical test refusals. The MVD will address whether
or not you were in control of your vehicle at the time of arrest, whether
or not an arrest took place, and whether or not you refused to consent
to a breath, blood, or urine test.
Negligent Operator Points Hearing: This type of hearing deals with Arizona’s “points” system.
If a driver accumulates enough points from traffic violations, their license
will be suspended. This hearing addresses whether or not you have accumulated
too many points from prior offenses.
If the MVD decides to uphold your suspension, your license will be suspended
for a minimum of 90 days or one year for a chemical test refusal. An attorney
from our firm can represent you at this hearing and fight to protect your
right to drive. These cases can be extremely complex, though an experienced
lawyer can greatly improve your chances of success.
