An arrest for driving under the influence automatically triggers a license suspension through the Department of Motor Vehicles 30 days after the date of your arrest. Therefore, you will remain to have full driving privileges for 30 days. If you do not request a hearing regarding the license suspension your license will be automatically suspended. If it is a first offense, the suspension will last for four months. After 30 days of no driving, you are eligible to receive a restricted license if you enroll in a first offender AB-541 alcohol program, file an SR-22, and pay a reissue fee to the DMV. The restricted license will allow you to drive to and from work, within the course of work, and to and from an alcohol program. If it is a second offense, your license will be suspended for one year with no eligibility for a restricted license. If you request an APS hearing, you will be afforded an opportunity to present evidence on your behalf, call witnesses and rebut the evidence introduced by the Driver Safety Office. After the hearing, the Hearing Officer takes all of the evidence and testimony under submission and renders a decision. The decision will either reinstate the license suspension or revocation, or set aside the license suspension or revocation.
