Getting a license back after a DMV DUI suspension in 2019 is much more complex than it was last year. There is the DMV administrative suspension for 4 months if you are .08 Blood Alcohol or more and the DUI conviction suspension which is 6 months, both can run at the same time. In both situations, if you are 21 years old or more, you have 3 choices to get a driving privilege back if both suspensions are imposed.
After a DUI arrest in Vista or anywhere in San Diego County, most people post bail and are released with a Court date on a misdemeanor DUI generally set about a month later. Aditionally, most people arrested have their driver's license taken away and are served with a pink temporary license and notice of suspension for a blood alcohol level of .08 or more, .01 or more if on DUI probation or under 21 or for a refusal to take a the blood or breath test.
A DUI can result in a drivers license suspension in one of two ways. First, if the person arrested for DUI is .01 blood alcohol level (BA) or more and is under 21 years of age or on probation for a DUI and served with a pink sheet, or is over 21 and .08 or more BA at the time of driving. Secondly, if there is a conviction for VC 23152(a) DUI or VC 23152(b) driving with .08 or more, a DMV suspension is triggered.
Driving on a suspensed license for DUI can have serious consequences in Vista Courts. There are several reasons a divers's license can be suspended in California and each has slightly different consequences with the most serious resulting from driving because of an alcohol suspension for DUI. All suspended license charges are misdemeanors and carry large fines and potential custody or alternative to custody, additional suspensions and 2 points on your driving record.
