Assembly Bill 1601 – DUI Repeat Offenders

Beginning January 1, 2012, AB 1601 authorizes the court to revoke for up to 10 years the driver’s license of any person convicted of three or more DUI’s within a 10-year period. The bill would also authorize a person who had his or her driver’s license revoked for 10 years to apply to the Department of Motor Vehicles, 5 years from the date of the last DUI conviction, to have his or her privilege to operate a motor vehicle reinstated subject to certain conditions. These conditions include the scenario that the person was not convicted of any other drug or alcohol-related offenses during the driver’s license revocation period.

Existing law requires that a person, convicted of driving under the influence, without bodily injury to another, within 10 years of being convicted of a separate violation of one or more specified DUI offenses, be punished by his or her driving privilege being suspended or revoked for a period of 2 or more years. Currently, the Department of Motor Vehicles is to advise a person, who was only under the influence of an alcoholic beverage at the time of the violation, that he or she may apply for a restricted driver’s license after completion of 90 days, 6 months, or 12 months, of the suspension or revocation period.
