How California's DMV Point System Applies to You

In California, every traffic violation is punishable based on a point system applied against your driving record. Traffic tickets can quickly add up, ultimately threatening your driving privileges. The DMV has the authority to suspend or revoke your license once you gain too many points on your record, such as:

  • 4 points or more in 12 months
  • 6 points or more in 24 months
  • 8 points or more in 36 months

A different point system applies to motorists with a Class A and Class B driver's license and for motorists under the age of 21. If you the DMV has threatened to suspend or revoke your license, entrust our law firm to help secure your rights. We will act quickly to contact the DMV and schedule a hearing to try and protect your driving privileges. Defense attorney Ivan O.B. Morse is committed to helping you navigate through the administrative process.

Handling Negligent Operator Hearings for Motorists Facing DUI Charges

Attorney Ivan O.B. Morse handles both the criminal and administrative sides of DUI/DWI charges. Mr. Morse is a former police officer who knows the right steps to take in fighting the charges and protecting your driving privileges. He will work with you to schedule a DMV hearing within 10 days of your arrest. Failing to schedule the hearing could automatically result in the suspension of your license.

During the DMV hearing, drunk driving defense attorney Morse will question the arresting police officer on the validity of your traffic stop. He will question the legality of the traffic stop at a DUI checkpoint based on a lack of suspicious driving behavior. Mr. Morse will fight back against threats to suspend your license if your constitutional rights were violated.

Advocating to Prevent a Medical Suspension of Your Driving Privileges

If the DMV has threatened the loss of your license based on medical reasons, obtain experienced legal help. At the Law Office of Ivan O.B. Morse, we understand that this is likely a frustrating and possibly overwhelming time for you. We want you to understand that you are not facing criminal charges or any sort of punishment. Rather, this is a way the DMV protects motorists from drivers considered physically unfit to drive.

We understand the potential implications you face, if your driving privileges are revoked. Our law firm is committed to helping you demonstrate that in fact you are a safe driver. We will request a hearing with the DMV to prove that you are physically fit to drive based on a medical re-examination.
