If I got a DUI and suspended license in Florida, can I get a drivers license in California?

When I was living in Florida, I got a DUI and my license was suspended. Since then I moved to California with my wife and we're about to have a baby. I still don't have a drivers license but now she wants me to get one so I can help her with the transporting of our child. What will I have to do to get a California drivers license?

    Nope. Not until you are entitled to re-issuance of the Florida license.

    That depends on Florida law. The suspension was from there and California will probably make you complete Floridas conditions to get a license back.

    You will have to clear up your problem in Florida (in other words, get a license), then you can apply for a license in California. You should call the lawyer who helped you in Florida, he/she should be able to tell you what needs to be done to clear your license in Florida, then you can move forward in California. If you didnt hire a lawyer, you need to call a lawyer in Florida and see what they can do for you, they may even be able to tell you, over the phone, how to get your Florida license reinstated.
