Question: Does you license automatically get taken away if you get a drunk driving conviction in Van Nuys, CA?

Answer: If there is a DUI conviction in Van Nuys, CA (or anywhere else in California for that matter), then your license will be suspended by the DMV. The length of a suspension, and whether and when you can get a restricted license depends on the factors surrounding your conviction. For example, if there is a refusal enhancement in the conviction, you will not be eligible for a restricted license. Also, a second offense DUI has a longer suspension period than a first offense. Feel free to contact me at 818-336-1DUI (1384) if you have any further questions. I highly recommend hiring an experienced DUI attorney to research and defend your case to mitigate potential consequences and potentially get the DUI charge reduced or dismissed.
