Driving is a privilege and not a right. You have to comply with CA rules if you want a CA license, even if your prior DUIs are from other states. I would suggest that you hire a CA attorney to explain the requirement for you and to research a way you can legally avoid the class. Otherwise, if you want a CA license, you have to do what CA wants. When I know a client of mine is about to move out of state, I remind them to research what impact their GA driving history might have on their ability to get a license in their new home state. Sometimes it makes a big difference.
