Will the DMV reinstate my drivers license​ as soon as I enroll in an SB38 program?


Hello this  is Attorney Patrick Silva with another answer to one of your fequently asked questions. Recently we were asked will California DMV reinstate my license as soon as I enroll in an SB38 class or wait until completion. The depends on alot of factors but lets go through the general rule. if this a second or subsequent and you are required to do the mutiple month 18 month DUI program, The DMV will let you get your lisense after you've enrolled in the SB38 not upon completion. Let's go with a different scenario, if you've moved out of state maybe picked up another DUI and come back to California. That opens the possibility that upon return to California you may have to complete the SB38 before they you your lisence back this all depends on the year  got your first DUI, second DUI. There is alot of variables on this question, the main thing is go to the DMV get enrolled in a class and see if you can get your license back. Good Luck. This is Attorney Silva Have a Nice Day.
