DMV Hearing and License Suspension

Obtaining a restricted license after a second DUI conviction
It may be possible to receive a restricted license after a second DUI conviction in California if certain requirements are met. These requirements include:
- Proof of enrollment in a licensed 18 or 30 month drinking driver program.
- Verification that you have installed an ignition interlock device.
- SR-22 certificate of insurance.
- Payment of reissue and restriction fee.
However, you will not be eligible for a restricted license after a DUI conviction if you were convicted for driving under the combined influence of drugs and alcohol, if you are under 21 years of age, if you refused to submit to a chemical test, or if you were on probation at the time the second offense occurred.
