In almost any type of legal matter, there are certain things you definitely should do and things you definitely shouldn’t. For example, if you get caught speeding, do not try to invent some off-the-cuff lie to create a purported justification for your speeding, and don’t double-down on that lie after the original lie has been exposed. Instead, you should contact a knowledgeable DMV defense attorney about your options.
Similarly, if you get a notice of re-examination from the DMV as a result of your alleged seizure disorder, there are definite do’s and don’ts. Definitely don’t ignore the notice. Do reach out with all due speed to an experienced San Francisco DMV defense attorney to help you determine what you next steps should be, and to prepare for them.
The legal action of A.K.A. was a case study in the do’s and don’ts of DMV notices of re-examination. For A.K.A., his troubles with the DMV began after he was involved in an accident in 2006. This triggered the DMV’s issuing a notice of re-examination. This notice occurs if the DMV believes that it may have reason to suspend your license due to your lack of “ability to operate a motor vehicle safely due to… a physical or mental condition.”
