DMV Hearings in Hilton Head

Administrative proceedings are held to regulate an individual's driving privileges after they have been charged with a DUI. These take place by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and are commonly referred to as DMV hearings. They are also often called Administrative License Suspension (ALS) hearings and can be used to help restore your driving privileges after being arrested for drunk driving. If you are facing a South Carolina DMV hearing, one of our Hilton Head criminal defense attorneys can assist you through the process of regaining your privilege to drive. We have more than 35 years of combined experience assisting our clients through this process.

There are many aspects of the incident that the DMV hearing will address to assess whether or not your license can be reinstated. They will evaluate circumstances of the incident, including whether you refused or accepted the breath tests or blood tests, if the tests were administered in the proper manner, whether you took any other field sobriety tests and the results, and if there was an accident caused by the drunk driving. The criminal justice system can be very frightening and the laws complex.
