Probation on a DUI

Posted by Amy Morell | Sep 16, 2016

What does probation mean?

If you are convicted of a DUI or Wet Reckless, you most likely well be placed on probation. There are two types of probation: Court and Supervised.  Court probation is the most common.  When placed on court probation, you will be ordered to not get arrested, not refuse to take a chemical test if suspected of driving under the influence, not drink and drive and no drive without a valid license and insurance.  These are typical court probation requirements.  There may be additional requirements depending on the jurisdiction.  Typically, court probation is for a period of 3-5 years for DUI cases and 2-3 years for wet reckless cases.

Supervised probation is for multiple DUI offenders or Felony DUIs.  This means you will have a probation officer to report and many requirements.

Vehicle Codes 23538, 23542, 23548 and 23552 discuss conditions imposed for various DUI convictions.
