DMV Hearings

Some traffic violations do not result in an arrest but result in you getting a ticket. These tickets carry a fine and add points to your driving record. They can even lead to your license being suspended or revoked! Did you know you can fight them? Contact us to fight the fine and the points!

Citations:

​When you get a traffic ticket, it is called a citation. Citations are usually a result of a moving violation such as speeding, passing a red light, not coming to a full stop at a stop sign, etc. These traffic citations have points and fines. If you want to contest (or fight) the ticket, you will have a hearing before a Hearing Examiner at The Department of Motor Vehicle Administration (DMV) located at 955 L’Enfant Plaza, Washington, DC.

Paying the fine versus requesting a hearing:

Paying the fine makes the ticket go away but not the points. If you accumulate enough points, your license could be suspended or revoked. Fighting these tickets with Wagner PLLC attorneys could reduce, or completely remove, points and fines associated with your traffic ticket. Call Wagner PLLC today to find out your best option.

When to contest a ticket:

 

To contest a minor moving violation ticket, you must request a hearing with DC DMV within 60 calendar days of the date the ticket was issued. If you don’t request a hearing within 30 calendar days, a penalty will be assessed. The penalty is the same amount as the ticket fine, meaning your ticket payment will double.
