If convicted of San Diego DUI or California Vehicle Code 23152, you can get a restricted license upon proof of enrollment in state alcohol program, insurance company's filing of SR-22 and payment of reissue fees, San Diego California drunk driving criminal defense attorneys note.

See this San Diego DUI Lawyer article excerpts:

DMV will grant a "restricted driver’s license to a person whose driver’s license was suspended under paragraph (1) of subdivision (a) of Section 13352 or Section 13352.1, if the person meets all of the following requirements:

(2)Submits proof of financial responsibility, as defined in Section 16430.

(3)Pays all applicable reinstatement or reissue fees and any restriction fee required by the department.

(b)The restriction of the driving privilege shall become effective when the department receives all of the documents and fees required under subdivision (a) and shall remain in effect until the final day of the original suspension imposed under paragraph (1) of subdivision (a) of Section 13352 or Section 13352.1, or until the date all reinstatement requirements described in Section 13352 or Section 13352.1 have been met, whichever date is later, and may include credit for any suspension period served under subdivision (c) of Section 13353.3.
