A notice from the DMV office was sent to an address that was not listed on the driver's license.

Asked about 1 year ago - Grand Junction, CO

Can a hearing still be scheduled even if the 7 day period has gone by by only a single day? Why would the information be sent to somewhere other than the address listed on the license? A change of address was never submitted through the dmv.

    Answered . Don't delay. Ask for the hearing and explain the tardiness at the hearing. Certainly should be a valid reason for the delay. Good luck.
