Question: Can I get a restricted license after a 1st DUI in Los Angeles without serving 1 month hard suspension? I also was just notified by the DMV in Van Nuys that they suspended my license too.

Answer: If you lost your APS hearing (ie. DMV hearing), or you did not request one (which sounds like that is what happened) and there was a suspension put on your license 30 days after you were arrested (not pertaining to a DUI court conviction), then you will have to wait 30 days before applying for your restricted license.
