Whether this is your first, second or third DUI, use this DUI Bible to guide you through the complex DUI process in California when it comes to the DMV and Court. 


When you are arrested for a DUI, two separate proceedings begin almost immediately.  FIRST, the DMV will take action on your driving privileges.  SECOND, you will have received a future court date either on your citation or booking release from jail.

The DMV hearing is independent from the criminal court case.  To some extent (exceptions listed below), the DMV hearing does not have any bearing on your court case and vice versa.  Except, if you are found not guilty of DUI in court, you can take that judgement to the DMV and have them reverse their decision, if your license was suspended.
