Helping Driving Seniors and Others with Suspended Driver Licenses
DMV Hearings to Get Your License Back
There are a variety of reasons the DMV may investigate and reexamine a person’s driving ability, including but not limited to Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, strokes, seizure disorders such as epilepsy, and even diabetes. DMV hearing officers, under California vehicle code, can evaluate any condition that has the potential to interfere with driver alertness, strength, coordination, judgment, knowledge, and skill. This means that anyone who has been reported may be subject to an investigation, even, as previously noted, someone who is diabetic. DMV policies are in place to maintain everyone’s safety on the road. If a physician, police officer, family member, friend or acquantance reports a driver, the DMV will evaluate the report and decide if further examination is needed. If so, a DMV attorney can be useful.
If you have a driver license medical suspension (or revocation) due to an alleged lack of skill or impairing medical condition, your best course of action is to employ an attorney to help you to earn it back so that you can become mobile again. An attorney may objectively present your case, both orally and on paper, in such a way that makes it easy for the DMV to give you the “green light.” Mr. Kendall has successfully represented many driving seniors and others with suspended or revoked licenses throughout California.
