Contest Your Driver's License Suspension

If you have been arrested for driving under the influence in Shasta County, the Department of Motor Vehicles may suspend your driver’s license if you do not take immediate action.


If your alcohol concentration purports to have been .08 or greater, you will have received a pink paper that notifies you that


  • Your driver’s license is suspended

  • You have a temporary driver’s license for 30 days


  • You have 10 days from the date of your arrest to request a hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles.


If you request a hearing on time, DMV may stay the suspension of your driver’s license. If the hearing results are successful, DMV will set aside the suspension and reinstate your driver’s license.


As part of his driving under the influence defense services, Mr. Ahart also provides representation at the DMV hearing for no additional cost. 


At the hearing, Mr. Ahart will challenge the suspension of your driver’s license and utilize the DMV hearing to obtain testimony from witnesses, such as police officers, who are under oath.  If the testimony of these witnesses is different at trial than during the DMV hearing, Mr. Ahart will demonstrate to the jury that the testimony of the witnesses lacks credibility.


Your ability to request an administrative hearing is time sensitive.  If you want an aggressive and highly skilled attorney to fight for your license, contact Mr. Ahart at 530 246 HELP (4357).
