Valencia is a planned community in California that forms Santa Clarita along with three other major communities. Aside from being used for the location of many TV series, Valencia is well known for being a safe neighborhood and having a convenient network of walkways (paseos) that connect the community without crossing streets at grade. Valencia is home to approximately 32,642 residents and attracts several visitors throughout the year. As a busy city, it is no wonder that arrests are made once in a while for driving under the influence (DUI) in which a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) hearing is very liable to take place.
It is normal for motorists to be unsure of their legal rights or defense opportunities when charged with DUI in Valencia. Many individuals arrested for drunken driving do not realize that the officer who arrests them will take away their driver’s license. A DMV hearing is available to arrested individuals as a way to retain driving privileges. However, a person has only ten days from the date of arrest to schedule a DMV hearing. Failure to do this will result in the automatic suspension of a DMV hearing and will suspend a person’s driving privileges for thirty days from the date of arrest.
