Orange County's DUI Queen
"Lack of Skill" Often Interferes with Driving Privileges. Work with Experienced DMV Hearing Attorneys to Keep Your Privilege Intact.

Lack of Skill

DMV Hearing Attorney

If a person commits a traffic violation, he/she may have his/her California driver’s license placed on suspension by the DMV if he/she is elderly, or if he/she is on medications. This type of suspension is referred to as a “lack of skill” suspension and it usually affects people who are considered senior citizens. Once a person’s driver’s license has been placed on a lack of skill suspension, he/she will have to meet with the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to contest the suspension of his/her driving privileges.

Having a suspended driver’s license can be a great nuisance and adversely impact a person’s present and future quality of life. Therefore, it is always advisable that people try to fight their license suspensions by taking the time to schedule and attend a DMV hearing. It is also advisable that people retain the services of a qualified DMV attorney to litigate on their behalf.

Hire an Orange County DMV Attorney

If your driver’s license has been suspended due to believed lack of skill, it is important that you speak with an experienced DMV attorney. A lawyer can discuss your options with you and provide you with advice you can rely upon. An Orange County DMV lawyer can also fight your suspension during your DMV hearing. By hiring an attorney, you will ensure that your needs are addressed, and that you receive the representation you need to fight the suspension of your California driver’s license.

In addition to exploring all of your available options, our attorneys can request a "Special Instructions Permit" from the DMV so that clients will be able to practice driving with a professional driving instructor. The DMV may request both the written test and drive test be taken by the client. Our office will provide tips for the written exam as well as tips for the behind-the-wheel driving test.
