When attempting to renew your old license you are told you have a suspended license that you knew nothing about, I can help you by reviewing your driving record and investigating the problems surrounding the suspension and begin to resolve it as quickly as possibly.
The Non Resident Violator Compact, NRVC, is an interstate agreement among most states in the United States that exchanges traffic information. You may or may not be aware of a ticket from years ago and not realize how it has affected the status of your license. Usually you find out there is a problem when attempting to renew your driver’s license in your home state and it has been denied because of problems in Colorado, or your Colorado driver’s license has been denied renewal due to issues in another state. A review of your Colorado motor vehicle record will help determine which problems need to be resolved in order to acquire or renew your license. Often these problems can be resolved quickly and I can get your license reinstated and get you back on the road with a legal license to drive.
Appealing the decision of a DMV Hearing Officer may be appropriate but it requires having sufficient facts and evidence to support the appeal. DMV Hearing Officers may have incorrect information or make an illegal decision during a Motor Vehicle Hearing. If this is the case, appealing this decision is critical. You have a lot to lose-your driver’s license and livelihood. You have only 30 days to appeal the decision in the jurisdiction of the offense. A judge will make a ruling based on the evidence and applicable law presented.
Navigating the Department of Motor Vehicle system is time consuming and complicated. I have helped many clients through this process and look forward to assisting you gain your driver’s license and getting you back on the highway.
