MVD Hearings

Have You Been Charged with a DUI?

If you are arrested for driving under the influence, you may face many consequences, including having your license suspended. If an individual is charged with a criminal case for a DUI, they will be required to attend two separate cases: a criminal heading and a civil hearing. The latter happens for the Arizona Department of Transportation’s Motor Vehicle Division. These meetings are known as MVD hearings.

While many people worry about their criminal charges, it is important not to overlook the civil hearings. Although these meetings are informal in nature, they discuss important matters such as whether or not the defendant’s license will be suspended. This hearing can also have a direct effect on the penalties of the arrest.

Hearings of any sort can be a scary thing. Hire representation to ensure that your rights are protected. At MayesTelles PLLC, our DUI attorneys have extensive experience speaking in MVD hearings. Allow us to help you! We prioritize the needs of our clients and work hard on their behalf.

Types of MVD Hearings

One of the common misconceptions of MVD hearings is that there is only one kind. This can be limiting when you try to prepare for your case and do not know which hearing you will attend. MVD hearings have many different variations, tailored to the case at hand.

Common MVD Hearings include:

  • Implied Consent Hearing – This form of hearing discusses whether the defendant was in control of the vehicle at the time of their arrest and whether or not they refused to take chemical and breath tests. Arizona is an implied consent state, meaning drivers give consent to alcohol detection tests when driving. Refusal of the latter can mean a year of license suspension.
  • Administrative Per Se Hearing – This hearing looks at whether the officer had reason to believe the driver was driving recklessly, whether the driver’s BAC was over the limit, whether the tests were accurate, and what form of DUI charges the defendant faces.
  • Negligent Operator ‘Points’ Hearing – This hearing looks at the defendant’s past record and whether they’ve accumulated past points on their driving record. This can affect their license suspension.
