DUI and DMV Suspensions depend on the facts of the case and the disposition of the criminal case. Initially when arrested for DUI by law enforcement, an individual is assigned a Court date to face the criminal charge of Driving Under the Influence of alcohol and/or drugs and given a notice on a pink sheet of an alcohol administrative DMV suspension case separate from the criminal case.
A DUI restricted license for a first offense is available for drivers age 21 or more. There are two suspensions that occurr with most "driving under the influence" cases. There is one triggered by a conviction for either VC 23152(a) driving while affected, or VC 23152(b) driving with .08 B.A. or more. The other is the DMV pink sheet suspension as a result of being .08 blood alcohol level or more regardless of Court proceedings. The DUI restricted license is available in both cases in most situations.
