A Negligent Operator Suspension is Tied to Moving Violations
A negligent operator suspension is a suspension of your driver’s license by the DMV when you have been convicted of too many moving violations within a certain period of time.
You are only allowed a certain number of DMV points within a given period of time. If you get 4 points in one year, 6 points in two years, or 8 points in three years, the DMV will presume you are a “negligent operator” and will suspend your license for up to 6 months.
Commercial drivers are entitled to a higher point count before they get a negligent operator suspension.
How Can I Win the Negligent Operator DMV Hearing to Prevent a License Suspension?
Before the DMV can suspend your California driver’s license, you are entitled to a DMV hearing to present your side of the story and to prevent the DMV from labeling you a negligent operator.
A traffic ticket attorney can represent you in your California DMV Negligent Operator Suspension hearing in order to help you keep your driver’s license.
An attorney can help convince the DMV to reduce the amount of time your license is suspended, or in the best case scenario, keep your driver’s license from becoming suspended altogether.
Often the DMV incorrectly tallies the points against you, or counts points that should no longer matter due to the age of your traffic ticket violations.
Also, if you can prove you spend more time on the road than the average person, the DMV will take into account facts like this when assessing your right to drive.
