Scope of the California Restrict License Violation (What you can do)
When you get a DUI, there will be steps you must take to get a restricted license. One of these steps is serving out the full 30 days of your hard suspension.
A Hard Suspension for the purpose of a California Restricted License Violation is not driving anywhere for 30 days. This means no driving to school or work. If you are caught driving anywhere during this time, then you will be violating the terms of your California Restricted License Violation. This violation will subject you to lose your California Restricted License Violation and also this will set you up for new charges of driving on a suspended license if you are caught driving. For example, your California Restricted License Violation says you will only be able to drive to DUI school and back and from work, however you decide to go to court instead and think it is okay. When you are at court, an officer observes that you are not allowed to be at court and follows you out. If he stops you, then you will be subjected to a charge of driving outside of your license.
