It was recently reported that the California legislature amended existing DUI (driving under the influence) laws in accordance with the procedures for obtaining a restricted driver’s license. The new amended provisions will go into effect on July 1, 2010.
New provisions will require the DMV to advise a person who has been convicted of an alcohol-related DUI offense for the first or second time to apply for a restricted driver’s license after completing 90 days of a license suspension period.
If individuals have received their third alcohol-related DUI conviction within 10 years, they might be eligible to apply for a restricted driver’s license after completing 6 months of a driver’s license revocation period. This application for a restricted license will be subject to certain conditions, including a requirement that individuals must show proof of enrolment in an 18-month or 30-month DUI program, as prescribed by the law.
