I received a wet reckless and was ordered to maintain sr22 for 3 years and summary probation for 3 years. I will be moving out of CA after approx 1 year after the court ruling.
You will still have to comply with the court's order. Since it is summary probation, you will not likely have to transfer it. Whether you need to maintain a proof of financial responsibility might depend on the requirements for licensing in your new state. You may be able to seek a modification of your probation term in court to accommodate your move. This will probably be easier with an attorney. Contact the attorney who handled your case, even if it was a public defender, or feel free to consult with new attorneys if you wish to have new representation.
I agree with my colleagues that you should check with the DMV. However, if you never plan to get a CA license again, you may not have to maintain the SR-22? Also, a wet reckless does not carry any license suspension, so it sounds like your suspensions is based solely on the loss of the CA DMV hearing (or not requesting one). You will need to check with the state in which you will be getting your new license, or ideally an attorney in that state, and see what, if anything, they will require. As for your probation, just let the court know your new address, and you should be fine.
