The Consequences of a Conviction
When you’re facing a second DUI conviction in California, the penalties get worse. A second conviction can lead to a jail sentence of 90 days to a year, fines of up to $1,000, and a two-year suspension of your driver’s license.
A third DUI offense can lead to 120 days to a year in jail, fines up to $1,000, and a three-year suspension of your license. Most third DUI offenders in Bakersfield also must complete an informational probation program of three to five years. Attendance at a 30-month DUI school may also be requested.
Reinstating Your License
When it comes to these convictions, it is difficult to reinstate driving privileges once you’ve been convicted of a subsequent DUI offense. However, with the help of a DUI defense lawyer from our Bakersfield California law firm, you may be able to make it happen.
To have your license reinstated, you may have to:
- Provide documentation of your current auto insurance
- Complete an alcohol treatment program as ordered by the court
- Install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle
