You should be able to petition the BMV and request a hearing on front of a judge. 1 year is pretty extreme. I believe it's 90 days here. Sorry for your mishap and I hope it turns out okay.

Keep us informed!

Hi joe4video, CA DMV laws are one of the strictest among the US states. Its actually illegal to drive without insurance in California. Unfortunately, I don't think that the DMV will show any leniency in your case.
