California DMV Hearings for Driver Lincense Fraud
What You Need to Know About DMV Hearings for Driver Lincense Fraud
A driver may receive a DMV hearing if the defendant has committed drivers license fraud. The DMV is required to notify a driver of his or her potential suspension. If you do receive notice of a pending suspension, there are still ways to challenge and overcome an upcoming suspension. Every licensed driver in California is entitled to a DMV hearing. That is your opportunity to present evidence and challenge your suspension.
Drivers license fraud occurs when one person uses another’s identification or false documents to obtain a California drivers license. This type of documentation could include counterfeit social security information, immigration documents, or birth certificate. An individual who provides counterfeit documentation to obtain driving privileges can be charged with drivers license fraud by law enforcement. See Forgery under California Penal Code Section 470.
If a person has been charged with
drivers license fraud or identification fraud, he or she can face a number of serious consequences. If convicted, one could face jail time, penalties and fines, probation, community service, and, of course, suspension or revocation of your driving privilege.
