Question: I got a 2nd offense wet reckless conviction in San Fernando Court (first offense was in Van Nuys Court, but no probation violation), but my prior attorney will not respond to me. Can I get a restricted license after 90 days if I get an IID?

Answer: Unfortunately, the new law that allows for a restricted license for a 2nd DUi offender after 90 days upon getting an IID installed, is just for that….. If your second conviction was a DUI, then you would be eligible. The way the law is written, even though technically a wet reckless is a lesser charge than a DUI, it does not benefit from this law. That is currently being challenged, but at this point, that new law will not apply.
