When you have a California DUI or DWI violation, one of the penalties is license suspension for a period of time. To obtain a restricted license to drive to and from work, you’ll need to buy and file a California SR22 insurance certificate. The SR22 certificate is an endorsement to an auto or non-owner insurance policy. You’ll need to work with a California licensed insurance provider to get an appropriate policy and certificate. California DUI insurance is available to vehicle owners, and to those who don’t own a car.
The decision to drive after drinking is one that can negatively affect your personal and financial life. If an officer pulls you over and you don’t pass the sobriety test, state will charge you with a California DUI violation. Failing the test leads to suspension of your driver’s license. You’ll then have to go through an administrative hearing process for license reinstatement.
