How long will a driver’s license suspension last?

It goes without saying that having your driver’s license is very important in California, and especially San Diego. Your license is an extremely important aspect of your life. Without it, you could be left to rely upon public transportation to get to and from work, or you could be left with highly difficult situations if you have children.

The amount of time your license may be suspended depends on how many DUI convictions you have on your record:

In the state of California, there is an implied consent law which provides that you agree to any chemical tests if you are driving on the roads in this state. Refusal of these chemical tests can result in serious penalties. If you are convicted of a first offense of chemical test refusal, then you will lose your driver's license for one year. If you are convicted of a second offense, then you will lose your license for two years, and you will lose it for three years for a third offense.
