“If you are convicted in court of a driving under influence, you will lose your license. You could’ve lost your license already if you lost your license through the Department of Motor Vehicles and their APS or administrative per se hearing.
That lasts for four months. Then, you can get a restricted license after the first 30 days if you have an SR‑22 which is a special type of insurance, proof of enrollment in alcohol program and $125.
If you’re convicted in court of the DUI, you then get to suffer further suspension. However, if you already have the restricted license, your license will then be restricted for the rest of the suspension period. That’s if it’s a first DUI. If you have a second or a third, the suspension can last for much longer and have no restricted license.” – Philip Greenberg
