A “second” DUI is defined as a drunk-driving conviction within 10 years of a first drinking and driving conviction. Penalties for a second DUI in California include:

  • Administrative Penalties, which are imposed by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), and are separate from criminal penalties. The DMV will suspend your license for a minimum of one year, and for up to two years.
  • Criminal Penalties:
  • o Between 90 days and one year in jail (this may be reduced through work service).
    o A fine of $390 to $1,000.
    o Three to five years of probation.
    o Attendance at a DUI School for 18 months.
