Temporary restricted license in California

You've been arrested by the California law enforcement for DUI.  They've taken your California driver's license, and handed you a piece of paper.  You have 30 days to drive before your privileges are suspended.  What do you do then?

A temporary restricted license authorizes drivers to drive a car for limited reasons.  These reasons usually involve driving to and from the work place.  They can also be other places, if allowed by the DMV, such as school, substance abuse treatment programs, or doctor appointments for a dependent person or self.

To be eligible for a temporary restricted license, you must not have any other nonDUI related suspension of your license.  Your "hard suspension" of 30 days must have elapsed.  You must have auto insurance (including SR22 reporting).

It's a hassle to obtain a temporary restricted license, but necessary if one needs their vehicle.  The consequences of driving while your license is suspended for DUI are far worse.
