I was arrested on Aug 2 for a DUI in Contra Costa county, and requested a hearing on Aug 5. It is now September 3 and since I did not receive anything from the DMV yet (and as far as I know I am suppose to receive a white paper as a temp license until my DMV hearing) I called DMV and asked where it was. They said they have no paperwork regarding my arrest, and as far as the lady on the phone could tell my license is not suspended, nor is there anything regarding an upcoming suspension (hence no white white paper or hearing date). I imagine that I can go get a duplicate license then since it is still active in their system. Do they have a time limit on when they must hold the hearing / make a decision like the DA (which I know is one year) or can they do this at anytime? ThanksI have a lawyer, just not sure I am getting a straight answer. Basically, what I am asking is according to the DMV website, it says the arresting officer must by law immediately send in the DS 367 form along with my license. What is the timeframe for "immediately"? As of now it is over 30 days, and from what I know that is not immediately. Is there, in that law, a timeframe they must send the DS 367 in by?
