Oceanside Restricted License Application Lawyer
Being charged with drinking and driving can be a life-altering experience. In addition to all of the legal problems that can hamper you after a conviction, there is the added inconvenience of having your driver’s license suspended. The prospect of being unable to get to work, school, and other obligations is stressful and may endanger your livelihood. Fortunately, though, you may be eligible for a restricted driver’s license.
It is not in the law’s interest to make the process of obtaining a restricted driver’s license easy for you. The fact remains, however, that it is possible even for people with multiple DUIs on their record to get a restricted driver’s license. An experienced Oceanside restricted license attorney may be your best option for getting back on the road. Call Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP, at 760-722-7646 today to learn more about your legal options.
Restricted License Checklist
If you plan to apply for a restricted license, you will still have to serve part of your license suspension. The suspension is normally 30 days for your first offense, 90 days for your second, and 6 months for your third. Then, if you submitted to a chemical test at the time of your arrest and there are no aggravating conditions associated with your DUI arrest, you may be able to receive a restricted license with the following:
- Proof of enrollment in a DMV-approved DUI program
- Filing an SR-22, which is a document with proof of insurance that you need to provide to the DMV from your insurance company
- Payment of the driver’s license reissue fee
Sometimes, though, you may need the help of an experienced attorney to make sure that you are not wrongfully denied a restricted license.
This application process can be tedious, and getting all your paperwork in on time is essential if you are to be driving again as soon as possible. You deserve every advantage when trying to preserve your rights.
