Could I drive to parent's home (LA) with a restricted license due to DUI in San Diego?
I live in San Diego for work on weekdays, but usually go back to my parents home in LA on weekends. In fact, the address on my driver's license still shows my LA address. I am wondering if I can still go back to LA with a restricted license? Both of my parents are in LA, it would be pretty bad if I can't go back for 6 months. What if they are sick or something? Is there any workaround for this? thanks.
As long as it involves your commute it would be ok.
