YOUR GUIDE TO CALIFORNIA DUI

CALL (888) 844-4384 FOR MORE INFORMATION AND A FREE CONSULTATION

As your California DUI Guide, we provide you with comprehensive California DUI information, including DUI arrests, California DUI laws, California DUI penalties, California DUI and the DMV, and more. We provide you with the information you need and want when you have been charged with drunk driving in California. The California DUI Guide recommends that someone arrested for driving under the influence in California contact a California DUI Lawyers Association member immediately for information regarding their drunk driving case.*

We provide you with answers to such questions as:

  • How does a DUI arrest affect me?
  • What are the penalties for driving under the influence in California?
  • Are breath tests accurate?
  • Do I have to take a breath/blood test?
  • What happens if my Miranda rights were not read to me?
  • How is my driving privilege affected?
  • Do I need a California DUI lawyer?
  • What happens in court?

*The California DUI Guide is in no way affiliated with the California DUI Lawyers Association, however it is strongly recommended that someone arrested for driving under the influence contact a CDLA member immediately upon release for arrest as they most often have the necessary experience and knowledge to represent a person suspected of DUI.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DUI DEFENSE & DMV HEARINGS

In California, when you are arrested for a DUI/DWI, two separate cases arise. The first is the court case and the second is a California Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) case. The DMV case is separate from the court case and a separate hearing is held at the DMV. When you have been arrested for California DUI and have a blood alcohol level of .08% or higher or refuse to be tested, your driver’s license is immediately confiscated by the arresting officer (unless you have an out-of-state license).

The arresting officer will give you a pink sheet that serves as formal notice of potential license suspension. It provides you with only temporary driving privileges and it is important that you request a DMV hearingwithin ten days after the arrest. Otherwise, suspension of your driving privileges will occur automatically within 30 days. This hearing addresses only your driving privilege and not whether or not you are guilty of a California DUI/DWI.
