Where a driver challenged the suspension of her driving privileges, arguing that the trial court erred in concluding during de novo proceedings that it did not have the authority to hear and determine due process violations that allegedly took place at the administrative hearing, a trial de novo is an original proceeding, and challenges alleging due process violations during an administrative hearing are outside of the trial court’s authority, so the judgment is affirmed.
Judgment is affirmed.
