Penalties For a DUI in California
Penalties for a DUI (driving under the influence)/ DWI (driving while intoxicated) are two fold. First, the court can impose penalties such as vehicle confiscation, or a drivers license revocation. Even if you are found ‘not guilty’, you may still face penalties from the DMV. For most people, DMV penalties could have been avoided entirely if they had hired a DUI specialist to contact the DMV within ten days of their arrest.
A Partial List of DUI Penalties
- Jail Time
- Large Fines and Court Costs
- Public Work Service
- Community Service
- Home Arrest
- License Suspension
- License Revocation
- Court Ordered Alcohol Treatment
- Court Ordered Alcohol Education
If you are charged with drunk driving, your license will be suspended before your criminal case goes to court. The suspension has to be challenged within ten days of your arrest. If the DMV is not contacted within ten days, you will automatically lose your driving privileges.
