DMV Issues & Hearings in Denver

Point Suspension Hearings (PSH)

Hearings on whether or not a person's license should be suspended for points are also fairly common. If you get too many points against your driving record within a certain period of time, your driving privileges can and will be suspended for points. Points accumulate against your driving record when you are convicted of a traffic violation by paying a ticket, pleading guilty to a charge, being convicted at trial or, in some cases, failing to appear in court.

An experienced Denver criminal traffic attorney can help show the DMV its records are wrong, if applicable, and also argue to minimize the impact a suspension will have on you. In the event your license is suspended at the hearing, an experienced Criminal Traffic lawyer can also help maximize your chance for a probationary driver’s license (PDL).

Probationary Driver’s License (PDL) Hearings

A probationary driver's license is a license to drive, for limited purposes, usually driving to and from the place of employment or to perform duties in the course of employment, during the term of a license suspension. Probationary licenses are for need based driving only and the hearing officer presiding over the hearing will determine what is and is not a need, if they choose to grant you a probationary license at all.

A driving privilege for commercial vehicles is not granted. PDL hearings and probationary licenses are no longer available for alcohol offenses or per se violations.

As a result, probationary driver’s license hearings are usually only granted due to point suspensions or child support suspensions. If you are granted a probationary license and are stopped by a law enforcement officer, and you are outside of your restrictions, the officer will confiscate the license for violating the terms of the license.

By law a probationary license can also be taken away from someone if they get any traffic tickets while on the probationary license. Once the license is confiscated, or you receive a ticket, the probationary driver's license will be cancelled and you will not be able to drive for the duration of your suspension. Also, any additional points may result in an additional suspension for excessive points.
