Hard Suspension for the purpose of a California Restricted License is not driving anywhere for 30 days. This means no driving to school or work. If you are caught driving anywhere during this time, then you will be violating the terms of your California License Suspension. This violation will subject you to lose your California Restricted License Violation and also this will set you up for new charges of driving on a suspended license if you are caught driving. For example, your California Restricted License Violation says you will only be able to drive to DUI school and back and from work, however you decide to go to court instead and think it is okay.
