ive had 3 dui's in my life,but they're all long ago & i went to prison for them.the last was over 10 years ago & is the only one showing on my record.when i tried to get my licence back the dmv said i had to attend a one year dui class.it should be noted that i was an owner operator with a class "a" licence, but i never got any violations while driving a truck.i got the dui while driving a car??
If the last DUI over 10 years ago was within seven years of a prior, DMV is looking at the most recent one and calling it a prior. DMV has different rules than court, and does not just follow what the court requires. DMV's rules have changed over time, and very rarely does it benefit drivers with DUI's. The extra DMV penalty is probably what the Mandatory in Sacramento will tell you has happened.
Without more information, it sounds like your last DUI over ten years ago was within seven years of a prior DUI. That would cause DMV to require you to take the Multiple Offender DUI School before giving your license back. Talk to the Mandatory Unit at Sacramento DMV to confirm what you need to do to get your license back. You will also need SR-22 proof of insurance and must maintain it for three years after you get your license back.
