Driver's License Suspension for California DUI

A California DUI conviction can have serious consequences. One of the most serious and feared consequences is the possible suspension of the driver's license.

Driving is necessary for most people who live in California, whether it be for work, school, running errands, and other such activities that require the use of a vehicle. The possibility of your license getting suspended can disrupt your life in significant ways.

Getting a California DUI conviction usually means the suspension of your license for a certain period of time, depending on the circumstances surrounding each case. Suspensions can range between 30 days to several years.

Some people take the risk of driving on a suspended license. However, doing this is highly inadvisable because driving on a suspended license is a California crime[1] that has severe consequences, which includes mandatory jail time.

So, does that mean that your license always gets suspended if you get convicted for a DUI? The short answer is no. A DUI conviction does not automatically result in driver's license suspension. You can fight the driver's license suspension via a DMV hearing for that purpose. Another way to keep on driving after a DUI conviction is to have an ignition interlock device installed in your vehicle.[2]
