So, what happens immediately after you lose your license?
Find Out What Happened
The reasons for suspension are incredibly important. For a start, the steps you must go through to get it back change based on the reasons.
Something else you must keep in mind is that the length of the suspension depends on the reasons. You should investigate the reasons closely first before you do anything else.
Do You Have Legal Recourse?
We always recommend getting in touch with our law firm for a free consultation.
Not every suspension is final. You do have options on the table to have the suspension reversed, or at least the punishment reduced.
For example, California traffic school is an option. Let’s say that you were suspended for reckless driving. One of our lawyers could propose that you attend traffic school instead.
A certificate of completion could get your license back, or have existing points on your license removed. It’s important to explore these options before you simply accept the suspension.
How You Can Get Your License Reinstated

You must petition for your license to be reinstated through filling out the necessary paperwork and submitting it to the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
Make sure that you have fulfilled the requirements of your suspension before you do this. These requirements can range from paying a fine to serving a short time in prison.
You must also pay the $55 administrative fee to have your license reinstated. There may be additional costs, but these depend on the reasons for suspension.
Your Age Does Matter
Drivers under 21 have far more stringent requirements than drivers over this age. This is particularly true when it comes to DUI offenses.
It’s well-known that drivers under 21 in California must adhere to a zero-tolerance approach to alcohol consumption and driving.
Therefore, dealing with a suspended license can be so difficult. It’s unwise to attempt to negotiate yourself.

A First Offense
The options for avoiding a suspension are huger if this is the first offense. Both the DMV and the courts tend to be more lenient, at least in the case of reckless driving.
The option of traffic school is on the table. The length of suspension may also be shortened.
