Blood alcohol concentration level, or BAC, is a number typically expressed in a percentage that references the concentration of alcohol within the blood stream. California’s DUI law prohibits a person from driving when they have a concentration of .08 percent or more alcohol in their blood system (.04% or more if you drive commercial vehicles or .01% or more if under 21). State of California has strict drunk driving laws for drivers under the age of 21 and repeat offenders (.01%), and a "no tolerance" law for drivers under the age of 18
I’ve been arrested, what happens now?
After being arrested, a Court Hearing will be scheduled. At your hearing you have a right to have an attorney and he or she will help make decisions on how to proceed based on your particular circumstances. In some cases your attorney will be able to have the charges reduced or possibly dismissed. In other cases it may be necessary to schedule a trial. Every case is unique, so hiring an experienced attorney can help you make the best decisions for your case and your future.
Why do I need to contact the DMV after my arrest?
The DMV & Court are 2 separate proceedings. It is important that you take immediate action and contact the California DMV to inform them of your DUI. If you fail to contact the DMV and schedule a hearing within 10 days of being arrested, your license will automatically be suspended in most cases.
