Will my License be Suspended for a DUI?
License suspensions can occur as a result of a DUI arrest through the DMV’s administrative procedure and/or if a person is convicted of DUI in court. Restricted license options are available, and the restricted license options were just dramatically changed under SB 1046, California’s new laws concerning Ignition Interlock Devices (IID) and DUIs.
Under the old laws, a person who’s license was suspended for a first-offense DUI by the DMV faced a 4 month suspension, which could be converted to a 30-day period of no driving followed by a 5 month period of restricted driving. Under the new law, if a person is convicted of DUI and their license was suspended by the DMV, the person does not have to serve a 30-day period of no driving if they install an IID in their car, obtain a SR22, and enroll in a DUI class.
