Out of State Drivers

Out of state drivers who visit San Mateo may think that they are not susceptible to California laws, but they are. If an out of state driver operates a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or both, he/she can be arrested for a California DUI offense.

Additionally, if an out of state driver is stopped for suspected DUI and his/her blood alcohol concentration is 0.08% or higher, he/she can be charged with DUI in California. Even though a person may not be from the state of California, he/she must still obey California law. Once an out of state driver is arrested for DUI, he/she will go through a similar criminal process as on in state driver.

The out of state DUI offender will be asked to submit to a blood alcohol test and will also have his/her driver's license placed on suspension. Once the person's license is suspended, law enforcement will issue him/her a temporary 30 day driving permit.

San Mateo 's 10 Day Rule

Once an out of state driver has been charged with DUI in California, he/she must schedule an Administrative hearing with the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) within 10 days of his/her arrest. If the out of state driver fails to schedule an administrative hearing DMV, his/her California driving privileges may automatically placed on suspension.

Due to the Interstate Driver's License Compact, an out of state driver's home state may be notified of the driver's DUI offense. 45 states in the U.S. currently participate in the Interstate Driver's License Compact.
