Ubiqus Reporting is the contracted vendor to provide transcription services for individuals who wish to appeal their DMV conviction. Ordering a transcript of your DMV hearing is a necessary part of your appeal process.

  • Different Types of DMV Transcript Requests

If you have received a letter from the DMV Appeals Board notifying you of your right to appeal, you need to send a copy of this letter, along with a certified check or money order for the amount listed on the letter, to Ubiqus Reporting in order to begin the process of producing a transcript of your hearing. The money order is a deposit towards the production of the transcript; you will either receive a refund or a request for additional funds if the cost of your transcript is more or less than that amount.

(Note: Personal checks, cash, and electronic payment transfers are not acceptable for this fee.)

(Note: You do have a 30-day limit in which to begin this appeal process. More information is available in the letter from the DMV Appeals Board.)

(Note: If you have been convicted of a traffic offense and wish to appeal, but have not received a notification letter of your appeal rights, you need to contact the DMV Appeals Board. Their contact information is below.)

Once your deposit payment is received by Ubiqus Reporting, we will request the audio of your hearing from the DMV. The audio transfer schedule varies for each DMV office, and may take up to 30 calendar days. Once the audio is received, production will begin on your transcript. The transcript will be mailed to you or your legal representative, depending on who paid the deposit fee, along with any refund owed to you from the production of the transcript.

(Note: If it is determined that production of the transcript will cost more than the deposit amount, you will instead receive a letter requesting an additional deposit before production will commence.)

Once you receive your transcript, you and/or your legal representative can begin preparing your argument for your appeal. This, and all subsequent steps in your appeal process, takes place between you and the DMV Appeals Board. Ubiqus Reporting’s only part in your appeal process is the production of the transcript of your previous DMV Hearing. Any further questions about the appeal process should be sent to the DMV Appeals Board. Their contact information is below.

Starting on July 20, 2016, Ubiqus is making the following change to its pricing policy. For public requests of Department of Motor Vehicles hearings, in the event that a transcription is unable to be produced due to defective or unavailable media, the $10 Audio Records Search Fee will be non-refundable. The remainder of the transcript deposit will be returned to the requester. This policy does not affect TVB or AAB requests.

Individuals or attorneys who wish to request a transcript of their DMV hearing for purposes unrelated to a current appeal may do so with Ubiqus Reporting. You will need to send a deposit of $150 via certified check or money order, along with the following hearing information:

1. Respondent’s name
2. Case number
3. Administrative Law Judge name
4. Date, time and location of hearing

(Note: Personal checks, cash, and electronic payment transfers are not acceptable for this fee.)

The $150 is a deposit towards the production of the transcript; you will either receive a refund or a request for additional funds if the cost of your transcript is more or less than $150. Once your deposit is received, the audio of your hearing will be requested from the DMV. The audio transfer schedule varies for each DMV office, and may take up to 30 calendar days. Once the audio is received, production will begin on your transcript. The transcript will be mailed to you or your legal representative, depending on who paid the $150 deposit fee, along with any refund owed to you from the production of the transcript.

(Note: If it is determined that production of the transcript will cost more than the $150 deposit, you will instead receive a letter requesting an additional deposit before production will commence.)
