DMV Hearing for a DUI

After suspending and confiscating an arrestee's license, the arresting officer will complete a document titled "Officer's Statement-Admin Per Se."  This is a one-page form that states the bare minimum facts necessary for the DMV to suspend the license.  These facts are: observing of driving (or statutory exceptions), probable cause, and breath test results.  This document is signed under oath by the arresting officer, and if applicable, the breath machine operator.  It is then sent to the Department on or before the end of the fifth ordinary business day following the arrest." [Vehicle Code § 23158.5(c)]  However, this deadline is often ignored by the law official with no consequences.
