MVD Hearing

I was arrested a few days ago for DWI. The arresting officer took my driver’s license but didn’t tell me much about my driver’s license. What should do?


ANSWER:

If you do not follow specific requirements within 10 days from the date you were arrested, your New Mexico Drivers License will be revoked for DWI.

You need to make an administrative hearing request with the NM MVD by completing a hearing request form and enclosing a $25.00 check made to NM MVD. When you were arrested the officer should have given you a form called a “Notice of Revocation“. If you did not receive this form, speak with a DWI defense attorney immediately.

Enclose the notice of revocation form, your completed hearing request form, and a $25.00 check and mail to NM MVD. Once again you only have 10 days from the date of arrest to secure your hearing or else your drivers license will automatically be revoked for DWI.
