On June 7, 2010 I was pulled over by an officer and given an infraction for being under 21 and driving with .03 alcohol in my system (the term DUI was never given) I am getting near my "year suspension" and am wondering how and when I can get my license back.
I was given a pink sheet, which was a 30 day temporary license. I did not request a hearing for my license I just took the one year consequence.
I then had to attend traffic court (which took a couple of months to finally get a date). The court just took 5 minutes, the judge asked me if I knew that I was going to have my license taken away. I said "yes, they already took it away from me when i was arrested" I pleaded no contest.
When can I get it back? from when the pink sheet expired? arrested?
Your license will be suspended for 12 months from the date of the original suspension or in your case 13 months from the date of the arrest as the suspension period did not begin until 30 days after the arrest. Since you are under 21 you may be eligible for a critical need license from the DMV depending upon your circumstances or you could have requested it from the judge if you are under 18.
