It is important to request a DMV Hearing within 10 days of the date of arrest.
It is important to know that a DMV hearing request must be made within 10 days from the date of arrest in order to contest your initial license suspension. For a Piedmont arrest, a request for a DMV hearing must be made to the Oakland Driver's Safety Office, 510-563-8900. The 10 days include weekends and holidays.
