DMV has authority to suspend or revoke the driver’s license of a
defendant who is convicted of various traffic violations. In
addition, the DMV can suspend a drivers license under the
following provisions:

• The DMV must revoke for one year the license of a person
convicted of reckless driving causing bodily injury.

• May suspend the license of a person convicted of a second or
subsequent offense of reckless driving.

• Must revoke for three years the license of a person convicted of
manslaughter resulting from the operation of a motor vehicle.

• Must revoke for three years the license of a person convicted of
three or more violations of hit and run within a 12-month period..

• Must revoke for three years the license of a person convicted of
a violation of Penal Code §191.5(a), or Vehicle Code §2800.3
causing serious bodily injury resulting in a serious impairment of
physical condition.

• May suspend the license of a person convicted of manslaughter
resulting from the operation of a motor vehicle under Penal Code
§192(c)(2). Vehicle Code 13361(c).

• Must suspend the license of a person who has failed for a period
of 30 days to satisfy a judgment rendered against him or her for
property damage of more than $750 or for injury or death

County, the suspension remains in effect until the judgment is
satisfied in full and the person gives proof of insurance.

When the DMV is required to suspend or revoke a defendant’s
license for a conviction of violating the Vehicle Code, the
suspension or revocation begins on a plea, finding, or verdict of
guilty in the Lamont Court. Any plea or verdict of guilty, plea of
no contest, a finding of guilty in a trial without a jury, or bail
forfeiture, is deemed a conviction for purposes of imposing a
license suspension or revocation, notwithstanding subsequent
action under Penal Code §1203.4 or §1203.4a allowing
withdrawal of a guilty plea, setting aside a verdict of guilty, or
dismissing an accusation or information in a Kern County Court.

Except as otherwise specifically provided, a license suspension by
the DMV may not exceed six months. However, the DMV may
suspend a license for up to 12 months in those cases in which a
discretionary revocation is authorized. The DMV may suspend or
revoke the privilege of a nonresident to operate a vehicle in this
state under any of the provisions of the Vehicle Code that give the
DMV the authority to suspend or revoke the license of a resident.  
A nonresident of California who operates a motor vehicle on a
highway in this state after his or her privilege to do so has been
suspended or revoked is in violation of Vehicle Code §14601 or
§14601.1 which is commonly known as driving on a suspended
