Driver’s License Restoration
If you live in the state of California you understand the unique conditions that make driving privileges a must. With over 22 million licensed drivers, California leads the nation in drivers. Loss of driving privileges can have a devastating impact on your life in many cases leading to loss of employment and difficulty in getting to medical appointments, shopping for essentials and getting children to school. If you have had your driver's license suspended it is important to know what you can do to have your driving privileges restored. Contact a San Diego DUI attorney with the experience and skill you need to fight for restoration of your driver's license.
If your license has been suspended due to an alcohol related offense such as driving under the influence (DUI) it is essential to know what you need to do next. Once you have received notice from the DMV of their intent to suspend your license, you must file a request for a hearing within 10 days. Failure to do this in the time allotted can eliminate your opportunity to request restoration of your driving privileges.
In California, you may be able to request a restricted driver license if you can prove hardship. There are some DUI offenses that do not allow a driver to seek this privilege. If this is your first DUI related offense, then you are likely able to seek this type of license. Those who have had a prior DUI offense within the past ten years may not seek a restricted license. So what is this type of license? Basically, it allows a driver permission to drive, but only under certain conditions and circumstances. For example, if a driver gets their license suspended, but must continue to drive in order to get to work, then their restricted license may allow them to drive only to and from work and only during certain hours.
