How does an RMV hearing work?
RMV hearings are special administrative hearings conducted by the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles that seek to determine whether an individual's drivers' license should be suspended or revoked in light of a recent conviction or charge. There are a variety of different charges that may result in an RMV hearing such as serious traffic offenses,
drug crimes or
OUI-DWI defense. Many drivers are not even aware that RMV hearings exist, however, and can find this quite surprising in the face of a recent arrest. An experienced
Salem criminal defense attorney who understands the process can provide invaluable guidance and insight throughout your hearing.
Perhaps the most important thing to know about RMV hearings is that they do not follow the same guidelines as a criminal trial that often precedes the hearing. RMV hearings consider documentation related to the offense itself and consider other factors before making a decision. These decisions are not made by a jury, and are instead decided by a panel. Potential consequences of an RMV hearing include license suspension and revocation, although a skilled attorney may be able to negotiate for certain exceptions.
