I had a DMV hearing for DUI scheduled and they canceled the hearing day before because they didn't receive documents from the arrest. They said if they do receive the documents, they will call to schedule a new hearing.
Is my temp license still valid until my court date or new DMV hearing date?
Is DMV allowed to cancel a hearing for not being ready?
Yes, the DMV can reschedule your hearing with some exceptions. Your temporary license is still valid as long as it says it's valid until outcome of the hearing.
Call driver safety to ask. This isn't a legal question and we don't have access to such information.
I am licensed attorney who focuses on Serious DUI Cases such a 2nd DUIs, 3rd DUIs, 4th DUIs, and Felony DUIs and DMV hearings. I also have much experience handling car accident cases. Although the information I provide is helpful, it is not legal advice. Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers. Do NOT include any direct solicitations or contact information.
You or your attorney should have received documents from the DMV at the very least even if the police/arrest/accident reports are not yet available. You should ask (or have your attorney ask if you have one) whether there was a "Notice of Stay" & for a copy of it from the DMV. That document will state that the effective date of your suspension is stayed pending your hearing & it will list any conditions.
Yes, go get your hard copy license. At this time you are fully licensed. The DMV may schedule a hearing once they receive a report and the BAC id 08 ot higher
