Administrative Hearing

An Administrative Hearing is held in front of a Hearing Officer, Hearing Administrator, Administrative Law Judge or some other representative of the agency who has the authority to administer oaths, hear testimony and determine agency-related questions of fact. Individuals accused of drunk driving in California have the option of appearing at an Administrative Hearing to determine the circumstances surrounding the DUI arrest. The Administrative Hearing is completely separate from the DWI criminal proceedings. Click here for more information about DWI Administrative Hearings.
