Common Vehicle Code Violations in California

Common Vehicle Code Violations & DMV Holds

DMV and the courts will get involved in cases where a driving code has been violated in California. More information on each type of vehicle code violation charges are available in their corresponding pages.  Just click on the section you need more information. You will be able to see the elements of the crimes (things the prosecutor needs to prove beyond a reasonable doubt), the list of potential defenses to such charges and the potential exposure.  Exposure means the penalties or punishment for each crime or charge.  Usually, there are both DMV consequences as well as court/penal consequences.  The DMV punishments could be points on your record, suspension of your license, revocation of your license or being given a restricted license.  Restricted license is usually requested by the driver after their license has been suspended.
