Rob from Driver’s Advocate’s just took me through an 8 month process of keeping my license from being taken away from me. He was very helpful and knowledgable about what steps had to be taken and how the DMV worked. Always very honest and didn’t give me any false hope about which way my case would go. Went to two hearings for me and never charged anything more than the agreed upon price. Always kept me informed and up to date with what was happening. I highly recommend him.
Kate L.
California Drivers Advocates has saved our son’s driving privilege. At 16, my son was involved in a very minor fender bender and it spiraled out of control from there with the DMV wanting to permanently taking his license. Thinking we could handle the DMV ourselves, my hubby, my son and I went to the first scheduled DMV hearing only to lose. I called California Drivers Advocates and spoke with Rob Collier. What a relief! I felt heard and finally felt there was someone on our side. Mr. Collier’s professionalism and expertise are the main reason’s my son was able to retain his license. I am so thankful for Mr. Collier’s support and fighting spirit. I would highly recommend California Drivers Advocates and Rob Collier. I only wish I had called him earlier!

What is the Effect of Mouthwash on a Breathalyzer?

November 20th, 2014|0 Comments

We all know that driving in the State of California is considered a conditional privilege. Essentially, this means that the State will allow you to drive on public roadways but, there are “strings attached.” In other words, rules that must be followed:
Chief among these rules is the “Implied Consent Law,” which is described in California Vehicle Code section 23612:
(a) (1) (A) A person who drives a motor vehicle is deemed to have given his or her consent to chemical testing of his or her blood or breath for the purpose of determining the alcoholic content of his or her blood, if lawfully arrested for an offense allegedly committed in violation of Section 23140, 23152, or 23153. If a blood or breath test, or both, are unavailable, then paragraph (2) of subdivision (d) applies.

What is an Administrative Per Se Hearing and why do I need one?
In 1990, California joined 27 other states in implementing a new law aimed at immediately taking drunk drivers off the road.  Known as the Administrative Per Se Law, this permits a police officer to immediately seize the driver license of any person believed to be driving under the influence of alcohol.  That’s right, under Administrative Per Se (APS), a police officer is empowered to steal one of your most important rights without a hearing or any offer of proof.

Reducing the Blood/Alcohol Concentration (BAC) to 0.05%.

February 12th, 2014|0 Comments

Federal Government recommends reducing the Blood/Alcohol Concentration (BAC) for legal driving to 0.05%.

History of BAC Levels:
It is universally understood that driving a motor vehicle anywhere in the United States with a blood/alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or greater is illegal and that all such persons are “presumed” impaired. This presumption is made without regard to sex, body weight, or tolerance.  If you operate a motor vehicle in the United States and your BAC is 0.08% or greater, you are guilty of drunk driving………Period!
