I firmly believe that every individual I represent deserves to have a voice in the criminal justice system.

After you are arrested on suspicion of DUI, you face a battle on two fronts: one in criminal court and one against the DMV.

Southern California has a car-based economy, and without a drivers license, it is practically impossible to earn a living.

Traffic Violations can have major implications on your finances and capability to sustain employment and income.

How Long Can a License Be Suspended in California?

The length of a driver’s license suspension depends on the reason for the conviction and related circumstances. For an uninsured driver’s involvement in an accident, the suspension may be four years. For a DUI (first conviction), it is suspended for six months. Additional DUI convictions may result in suspension of a license from between two to four years. If your conviction involves vandalism, your license may be suspended for one year. Excessive points on a driving record may result in a six-month suspension, probation, or revocation altogether. Failure to appear in court, failure to pay court-mandated child support, and failure to report an accident all may result in a driver’s license suspension for an indeterminate amount of time.

How Can My License Get Reinstated?

The method of getting your driver’s license reinstated depends on the reason it was suspended in the first place. For each conviction, there are predetermined steps that must be completed before you can get your license back. For example, a DUI conviction will require the driver to complete the required DUI programs, pay the reissuance fee, and wait until the suspension period is over. Other convictions, such as a conviction for driving and being involved in a car accident without insurance, will require the driver to complete the mandatory suspension sentence, pay a reissuance fee, and fulfillment of other court-related mandates, such as filing a Proof of Financial Responsibility form. An experienced license suspension attorney can assist in helping you navigate this process.

How Long is a License Suspension on My Record?

A conviction for a driving offense might last on your driving record for a very long time. On the other hand, depending on the charges, your DMV record may be cleared automatically in a relatively short period of time. For example, many points on your DMV driving record can fall off after about three years. However, more serious offenses, including DUI, may be on your record for several years. For commercial drivers, DUI convictions are reported by the DMV for decades. Actions taken against your driving privileges due to mental or physical impairment can be reported for ten years. Depending on the situation, legal help may be necessary if you want to clean up your driving record.

Can My Attorney Handle Both the Criminal and DMV Case?

Often driving offenses, whether misdemeanor or felony, will involve two separate legal processes. Many people will need an aggressive attorney to fight for their rights in both the criminal case and the DMV hearing. Attorney Stephan J. Johnson has over two decades of experience helping clients navigate these challenging processes. With sound legal guidance, it is possible the charges may be reduced, or the case may be dismissed. Having a skilled attorney on your side helps you advocate for your rights to fight the charges on both fronts (with the DMV and with the criminal courts).
