Receiving a DUI Without a Driver's License

Orange County has its share of unlicensed drivers, some of which are citizens outside of the U.S. That being said, it’s not uncommon for our local law enforcement agencies to arrest unlicensed drivers for driving under the influence.

Conveniently located in Laguna Hills, near Irvine, Lake Forest, Laguna Beach, Orange, Santa Ana, Aliso Viejo, and Mission Viejo, our firm regularly defends unlicensed drivers against DUI charges. When these clients are first arrested for DUI without a driver’s license and they contact our firm, they often ask us:

  • Will I go to jail?
  • Will I be deported?
  • Will the DUI affect my ability to get a green card?
  • What penalties will I have to pay?
  • Can I re-enter the U.S. if I leave?
  • Will the DUI stop me from getting my license?
  • Will I be arrested if I attend the hearing?

To be honest, there is a long list of mandatory and optional penalties connected to a DUI for someone that does not have a valid driver’s license, whether they are a U.S. citizen or not.

What happens to unlicensed drivers depends on a variety of issues, such as: 1) what county the defendant is convicted in, 2) the defendant’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC), and 3) whether the charge was reduced to a lesser offense, such as wet reckless.

If you are convicted of DUI in Orange County, you face the possibility of fines, jail time, DUI school, and of course, problems obtaining affordable insurance. But, instead of focusing on what could happen, we want to concentrate on fighting your case.

Your best plan of action at this point is to contact our firm to schedule a consultation with a member of our legal team. It would be worth your while to speak to an experienced DUI lawyer who can fully explain how the DUI “system” treats people in your particular situation.

We offer free consultations, so contact our office and find out why we are known as one of Orange County’s top DUI defense firms!
