DUI charges can result in serious consequences, including jail time, hefty fines, and a license suspension. A suspended license can put a toll on many people, especially if they lose their method to get to and from work. Our Orange County DUI defense attorneys explain if you can drive to work with a suspended license after getting a DUI.
California Restricted License
Getting to work can be a challenge if you lose your driving privileges because of a DUI. Thankfully, those with a suspended license can obtain a restricted license that allows them to receive limited driving privileges. California might grant you a restricted license if the DUI you were convicted of was your only offense within the last ten years.
What Are the Limits of a License Restriction?
A restricted license allows a driver with a suspended license to use their vehicle on limited occasions. With a restricted license, you will be allowed to drive only to the following:
- You can drive to and from work
- You can drive for work-related purposes during the workday
- You can drive to and from alcohol school if you were ordered to attend by the court.
How to Apply for a Restricted License?
To apply for a restricted license, you need to go through the DMV or the court conviction for DUI. California's administrative process regarding driver's licenses is complicated. For such reason, it is important to have an experienced attorney analyze your case to determine the most effective way to obtain a restricted driver's license.
