3 YEARS IF YOU LOSE YOUR DMV APS HEARING
One of the most expensive DUI penalties is the requirement to file California Insurance Proof Certificates (SR-22) with the DMV for three years. Of course, to obtain the certificate is to notify your insurance company that you have lost your DUI DMV APS hearing and your insurance rates are likely to double. You will not qualify for a “good driver discount” on your insurance with a DUI on your record for 10 years.
You must get an SR-22 certificate from your insurance company and file it with the DMV in order to reinstate your driver’s license or to get a restricted license if you do not challenge your DMV suspension or if you lose your DMV APS hearing.
