Vista DUI Probation Violations

Vista Court DUI probation violations can be any violation of the terms of probation.  The period of probation runs from three to usually five years of informal probation, those terms include: Do not drive with a measurable amount of alcohol in your system, do not drive without valid license and insurance, take a chemical test if requested to do so by law enforcement, violate no laws other than minor traffic. DUI probation violations of these informal terms are usually only discovered if a new case is filed in the same Court, or another jurisdiction reports a new case filing other than minor traffic infractions like speeding etc.  If you are cited for any misdemeanor or felony, even driving on a suspended license with no insurance, or new DUI, then the Court Clerk's Office does a computer sweep and picks up any open probation cases which will then accompany the new case into Court for a revocation and action on the Probation Violation. 

What are Vista DUI Probation Violations?

     Vista DUI probation violations are caused by failure to follow the terms and conditions of probation.  Every misdemeanor DUI has informal probation which means you do not have a probation officer and do not have to check in monthly.  You do have to follow the terms of probation which include not driving without valid license and insurance, submit to a chemical test if requested by law enforcement, do not drive with a measurable amount of alcohol in your system and violate no laws other than minor traffic.  In addition to these conduct rules, there are affirmative things that must be done by certain dates or they trigger Vista DUI probation violations, a warrant for your arrest and a hold on your license.
