With regards to 13352(a)1 for a first offender, the license suspension is stated to be 6 months. However, in the same section, it states that the DMV will not reinstate a license until their program requirement has been met. (Which conceivably could take longer than 6 months to accomplish) In situations such as that, how would 13556 be applied? How long could the DMV suspend a license for in that situation and still be within the law as stated in 13556?None of the answers provided actually answered the question posed.. VC13356 sets specific time limits for how long a license can be suspended.. My question as it relates to 13352 is how the DMV can refuse to reinstate a license if for instance 2 years have gone by and the DUI class requirements are not met? It seems as though it might fall under 13556 (b) except for the fact that it isn't a discretionary suspension. That said, how can the DMV continure to suspend a person's license?
