DMV Hearing for a DUI

 After confiscating the arrestee's license and serving him or her with an order of suspension, the arresting officer will complete a document entitled "Officer's Statement-Admin Per Se." This one-page form sets forth the bare minimum facts necessary for the DMV to suspend the license: observing of driving (or statutory exceptions), probable cause, and breath test results. The document is signed under oath by the arresting officer and, if applicable, the breath machine operator. It is then supposed to be forwarded to the Department "immediately"-"on or before the end of the fifth ordinary business day following the arrest." [Vehicle Code § 23158.5(c)] In fact, however, this deadline is routinely ignored with no consequences.
