What is a DMV refusal hearing?

When you refuse to give a BAC test, your driving license will get revoked for a year. The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will arrange an administrative refusal hearing for your license within 15 days of your arraignment.

This hearing will be independent of your criminal hearing in court. It will be headed by an administrative law judge who working on the principal of ‘clear and convincing evidence; will determine whether you knowingly or unknowingly refused the hearing in court.
