Usually, you can get a restricted license after 30 days of your license suspension given that you file an SR22 with the DMV, and show proof of enrollment in a DUI class.
If you previously had a California issued non-commercial driver license and you show proof of enrollment in a DUI treatment program, file proof of financial responsibility and pay a $125 reissue fee (after the mandatory 30-day suspension) you may request a restricted license to drive to and from the DUI treatment program and/or to, from, and during work.
Have you requested a hearing with the DMV Driver Safety office? Have you plea in court? Is this a first time DUI? If you were arrested within the past few days, you need to contact a Criminal Defense attorney immediately in order to discuss your case and preserve your right to a DMV hearing. You only have 10 days from the date of arrest to request a hearing with the DMV. Do not go to the normal DMV field office to request the hearing, you will likely just be talked into circles and end up missing the deadline.
