I am unfamiliar with the California Resident License, that being said, the issuing agency may have authority to withdraw or suspend the license when a licensee is arrested. You should contact the licensing agency and ask about the process to get reinstated.

You probably received the DUI on your CA license in another state, that state finally reported the conviction to CA, CA updated it's records and has suspended you effective to the date when you were convicted. You probably do not have a valid license at this time, you will probably have to...Read more »
It means that on one warrant she can post bail, on the other she must appear in court before bail will be considered. You should contact a local lawyer to discuss the cases and possibly appear and argue for bail in the "no bail" case.

Unfortunately, the DMV requires you to enroll and complete a 3 months DUI program (AB541) in order to get your license back. You can request from the court that they let you re-enroll into the program so you don't have to start all over but if 10 years has passed, I'm affraid they might...Read more »
I was visiting family in Oregon and Saturday night (April 9) I was pulled over and received a dui but I live in California and can’t travel back and forward. My court date was set for June 6, 2022 and I want to know if my case can be transferred to my county.
No, you can't transfer the prosecution to a venue that is more convenient for you. You will need to either retain a lawyer or appear at your arraignment on June 6. At that appearance, your lawyer will appear on your behalf or, assuming you are there, you may have a public defender appointed...Read more »

You should check with the program directly regarding admissions and attendance policies, they should be able to show you the regulations applicable to your situation, they also should explain the reinstatement process. Often, once a student has been expelled from the program they have to return to...Read more »
If the driver passed drug and alcohol testing, the prosecutor may not have had sufficient evidence to successfully prosecute a DUI manslaughter case beyond a reasonable doubt so settled on a plea bargain to get a lesser criminal conviction (reckless driving).

You can either hire an attorney or call the PD that represented you and ask them to add it back on at the courthouse. Show the judge your COVID test or let them know the jail sent you home for COVID. The Judge will most likely give you a new turn in date. Or you could go do this yourself but be...Read more »
