Is this true?? If so, what are the conditions or requirements for this? And when did this go into effect??? I heard something like you have to ask for a specific form during your intake to qualify for this. What about the people who were released prior to this and/or who did not know what to fill out to qualify??? Can you shed some light on this subject for me???
I'm sorry, I didn't realize I had listed this under DUI. I am actually using this WONDERFUL site as an information hub for a couple people I know who are really computer smart. It's not for DUI.
You question was listed under DUI and not general criminal. Assuming you went to prison for a DUI, then the answer most likely is no, you don't get your driver's license back when you leave. Assuming you had a Californa license to start, you'd have to participate in the DUI class/school as ordered by the court.
They don't cancel the DUI school requirement because of prison confinement, they just delay it.
Good luck with your situation.
