the first offender program is 3 months. Upon conviction, you get suspended and the DMV won't reinstate until the program requirement has been met. however, you can get a restricted license if you show proof of enrollment in the program.
No legal advice is given here. My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must NOT be relied upon as if they were legal advice. I give legal advice ONLY in the course of a formal attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions & Answers forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by joint execution of a written agreement for legal services. I am only licensed in the States of California and New York and the District of Columbia
The DMV will suspend your driving privileges until their requirements are satisfied, such as proof of enrollment or completion of DUI AB541 first offender program (if not enhanced), SR-22, and a fee.
Maybe, but only if your BAC was .20 or higher of if you have a prior DUI within 10 years.
