San Diego does a 5 year grant of summary probation, if you are still on probation anything above a .01 would be a 1 year suspension. If you aren't on probation you should not have a suspension with a reckless driving.


By CDL, do you mean commercial drivers license? If so, you'll need to hire an attorney. Also, the probation period on the first DUI begins upon conviction, so hopefully you are not still on probation. Even though the DA may not file charges, I highly suggest consulting with a local DUI attorney to begin preparing. Good luck.

At a .06 unless you have drugs in your system I would fight for a dismissal or a dry reckless. The DMV controls your license not the court.
