I was told that if I did NOT want to get a restricted license then I would have my license suspended by the DMV for 4 months. However, I would be eligible for a license at the end of 4 months without taking the 3 month DUI class (AB541) or getting the SR22 insurance, or installing the interlock device in my car. Is this true? I plead no contest to a wet reckless and was given the 12 hour class by the court.
A wet does not hit the DMV, so DMV does not require any class or further license suspension for a conviction of wet reckless. DMV will require you to file the SR-22 though. Here are a few good SR-22 companies: Breath Easy Insurance, (949) 529-5062. John MacDonald Insurance: (949) 788-1020.
This also depends on what agreement your attorney had with the DA, and what the judge ordered. An interlock device is a tool you can use for a shorter suspension, but this is typically for a second DUI.
However, Mandatory 5-month IID for convictions in Alameda, Los Angeles, Sacramento, and Tulare for convictions on or after July 1, 2010
