    Default 2nd DUI in California, Court Conviction Versus DMV Conviction of License

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: California

    I got my 2nd DUI in califiornia about a year and a half ago and was recently convicted of the DUI. The court ordered my license to be suspended for 2 years. I had my DMV hearing a little over a year ago and it was decided in my favor, and received my license back. I want to know If I am able to drive even though the court suspended my license for two years. I called the DMV a yesterday and they do not have my license suspended. I understand the court and DMV are seperate in California, so can someone please tell me if I am able to drive since my license is not suspended by the DMV?

    Thank You.

    Until the DA receives an order from the court directing them to suspend your license, it would appear to be valid. However, that order could come at any time.

    It is also possible that at sentencing you were ordered to surrender your license, or that as a condition of probation you will not be permitted to drive.

    Consider getting a copy of your court orders and probation conditions.
