Restricted License After DUI

How can I get a Restricted License if charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI) of Alcohol?

Following a mandatory 30 day restriction, you may be eligible for a Restricted Driver’s License in the state of California. This license is applicable to those who have a Restricted License following a DUI or restriction for failing to have car insurance.

Am I eligible for a Restricted License?

Certain criteria must be met to be eligible for a Restricted License. If you are applying following a DUI, this must be your only DUI-related offense within the last 10 years. Additionally, the results of your blood alcohol level must be within a particular range and you must have been 21 years or older at the time of your arrest.

What Do I Need to do to Apply for a Restricted License?

In order to obtain a Restricted License from the CA DMV, you must enroll in a licensed DUI First Offender Program. You will also need to provide a Proof of Enrollment Certificate for the DUI Program, a reissue fee of $125 for DUI or $250 for Failure to Provide Insurance, current proof of car insurance (see SR-22 information HERE), and you must request a “To/From/During Course of Employment and DUI Program” restriction.

What can I do with a Restricted License?

Valid for 5 months, the DMV will allow you to use your Restricted License for the following purposes following a DUI:

  • Drive to, from, and during the period of your employment.
  • Drive to and from the location of your DUI program.

For a suspension due to failure to have car insurance, a Restricted License can be used to drive:

  • To, from, and during work.
  • To obtain medical care for yourself or your family members for any serious medical problem.
  • To and from school for your minor dependents, if no public or alternate school transportation is available.

    What is the limit of the blood alcohol to get a restricted license?

    1. Zak Nicola says:

      All 50 states have now set .08% blood alcohol concentration (BAC) as the legal limit for driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while impaired (DWI). For commercial drivers, a BAC of .04% can result in a DUI or DWI conviction nationwide.
