California DUI Licenses Suspension Laws

Your driving privileges can be withdrawn by the DMV for a DUI or DUID, for failing to appear in court following a traffic ticket, for failing to pay a fine connected with a traffic ticket, or for accumulating too many points on your driving record.

If you are arrested for a DUI, you will lose your license for:

  • Having a BAC (blood alcohol concentration) of .01% or more while on DUI probation
  • Having a BAC of .04% or more while driving a commercial vehicle
  • Having a BAC of .08% or more while driving a passenger vehicle
  • Refusing a BAC test when asked to do so by a police officer

Administrative License Suspension Hearings

At the time of your DUI arrest, your license will be confiscated and you will have 10 days to request a hearing at the DMV to challenge an automatic suspension. If you fail to request this hearing in time, you will forfeit your right the hearing.

At the hearing, you will have the right to challenge the evidence being used against you to suspend your license. You do not have to appear if you hire an attorney to argue your case for you. Many legal and technical points can be brought up that could invalidate the DUI, such as lack of probable cause, violations of your legal rights, improper chemical testing, and more.

In many cases, you may be able to retain your license if you apply for a restricted license using an ignition interlock device (IID). This device prevents your vehicle from starting if alcohol is detected on your breath.
