Orange County DUI Attorney for 1650 Waivers

How to Remove a California Driver's License Suspension

If your California driver’s license has been suspended, you will need to get the suspension lifted before you can apply for a driver's license in any other state. Most DMVs run all new license applications or renewal applications through the National Drivers Registry before approving an application.

Your home state will deny your application for a license if you have a suspension on a driver’s license from a different state. In such cases, you will need to file a 1650 waiver.

If you have received a California DMV mandatory action for a driver's license suspension, contact our firm today.

What is a 1650 Waiver?

A 1650 waiver is an affidavit of out-of-state residency that is critical to the process of getting your old California driver’s license suspension cleared. An out-of-state licensee must file a 1650 waiver with the DMV.

The only way for an out-of-state resident who holds a California license to clear or remove a suspension is to file an affidavit of out-of-state residency with the department of motor vehicles for the state of California.

An out-of-state resident with a California driver’s license is not eligible to file a 1650 waiver until the applicable suspension has lapsed.

How Do I File a 1650 Waiver?

In order to secure a 1650 waiver document you must contact the department of motor vehicles at (916) 657–6525 and request an official form "affidavit about a state residency" 1650 waiver.

In response, the Department of Motor Vehicles will contact you by mail and will include the affidavit of out-of-state residency for you to execute and return to the DMV with applicable documentation establishing that you are, in fact, a resident of another state.

Examples of documentation that proves your residency include utility bills, mortgage statements, state tax documentation, and other official documents that can be used to establish your official residency in that particular state.
