License Suspension Lawyer in Riverside

Causes for License Suspension in California

As a means of discouraging driving under the influence (DUI), California state laws provide escalating license suspension and revocation terms for multiple DUI offenses. A first offense (Cal. Veh. Code § 23536) will result in a suspension of six months upon conviction. A second conviction within 10 years (§ 23540)will incur a suspension of two years. For a third conviction (§ 23546), an offender's license will be revoked for three years, and for a fourth or subsequent conviction - which is a felony (§ 23550) - the license will be revoked for four years, or even for life if circumstances are aggravated by injury or death.

DMV Hearings and Defense Strategies

After being arrested for DUI, your license will be confiscated by the law enforcement officer and, unless you request a DMV hearing within 10 days of your arrest, it will be suspended until your trial is complete. Once you request a DMV hearing, you can go before the Department of Motor Vehicles and petition for a hardship license by proving that you need driving privileges in order to make it to work, school, appointments and other necessary parts of your life. A Riverside DUI attorney from our firm could help you obtain a hardship license and could skillfully defend you from a wrongful DUI conviction, so contact our offices today for a consultation.
