California DUI Laws


When an individual is stopped or arrested the officer takes your license and issues a temporary 30-day driving permit. This license action is separate from any criminal charges you face related to your DUI arrest. You can continue to drive in California and avoid suspension after a DUI arrest if you install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle.

Benefits of installing an interlock as early as possible: For first-time offenders, the incentive is obtaining driving privileges. For second or subsequent DUIs, the incentive is also credited for “time served”.

Criminal Consequences for California DUI:

If you are convicted of a DUI offense, penalties apply, based on the number of times you have been convicted of DUI, if there was a crash or injury while you were driving under the influence and how much time has elapsed between the convictions.

You will pay fines, attend alcohol treatment classes, have your license suspended, and may be required to have an ignition interlock device installed on your vehicle.
