Will my 12 wk DUI treatment program in Florida transfer exactly to Washington state?
First time DUI. It's a misdemeanour, since I wasn't driving when I was charged. I have already finished the 12 hr class. Because my BAC level was over .14, I must complete a 12 week treatment program. I have already enrolled, since I was given a strict time frame to enroll in my DUI school, finish the classes, and enroll in treatment. I'm moving to Washington in less than a month. The staff at my treatment program are aware and have instructed me how to transfer my case. My question is... After I relocate and transfer my case, will I be completing the program Florida has instructed me to complete or will Washington judge my case again and decide my fate? If Washington is deciding my fate, what am I looking at, roughly? Thanks in advanc
For the courts: This partly depends on whether you have prior DUIs. If this is your first DUI, and a misdemeanor,...
Delayed progress towards reinstating license, IID / SR22 4 years later?
I was charged with a DUI (I believe DUI is the charge on my record, I paid to print my WSP Criminal History and for some reason it’s not on there?) in Washington State approximately Dec, 2013. I completed all court requirements with no ailments, but since I was a student at the time with no need to drive I decided not to pursue reinstating my license. I am now interested in reinstating. I checked the DOL ‘reinstate my license checklist’ and it says: 1) submit assessment/treatment report (I finished treatment back in 2014, had my file faxed today) 2) reinstate your enhanced drivers license (lists the fines and fees) Restrictions: 1) have an IID at least until 9/20/2015*, 2) probationary license until 9/20/2019. *Before you can have your IID removed, your installer must send us proof that you've been in compliance for the last 4 months. For more information, contact installer. Even though the IID date has already passed, do I still need to have the four month compliance to begin driving again? If I have the IID installed does it require special insurance? Once my treatment has arrived at DOL can I reinstate and continue not driving while figuring out the IID?
And yes, you still need four months of compliance with the IID requirement to get your license reinstated. During this...

How do I resolve my dui license suspension after moving out of state?
I committed a dui in Washington and shortly before my probation ended I was told that my treatment provider discharged me for noncompliance even though she had told my probation officer and I something different. Now I am in California and am wondering if I can go to AA or a co occurring group (like I was going to in WA) or do I have to follow California's dui program?
This is a question for your attorney, probation and the court. The court can allow you to do a number of different...
How do I avoid the ignitions lock required by Washington state when you get a DUI in another State?
Last year I got a DUI in Idaho with a Washington state Licence. Have not lived in Washington for the past two and 1/2 years. The Idaho judge did not require an ignitions lock, just classes, volunteer work and fees to be paid. I was never notified that I needed a ignitions lock from Washington. I tried to get my Idaho licence today, and they told me I could not till my suspension was lifted from Washington. I reinstated my licence in Idaho ($500 to do so) two weeks ago and have been driving since, thinking i was legal to drive. Possibly WA has some avenue for me to surrender my WA license and clear the suspension. Also my WA licence expires today.
I am not following your concern/question because you said you got a Idaho Drivers License. I assume that means that...
Is it possible to complete ATR To lift suspension on license in another state?
I committed a DUI and finished probation a while back in Washington. But before finishing probation my officer and I realized I had been discharged for noncompliance from my treatment (even though they had been told otherwise by the provider). I wasn't penalized and was still able to be released from probation. However the hold is still on my license for treatment and/or an assessment and I have moved to California. Is it possible for me to fullfil the DOL requirements to lift the suspension in California? If so can I go to AA or a co-occurring group and have them report back to the DOL?
What has to happen is you need to get an attorney to set this up. You will have to get something from a WA state...
Is an officer required to report the results of a breathalyzer if they are over the legal limit?
I was pulled over in Bellingham and my breathalyzer test was over the limit but the officer did not book me and let me go? I'm just wondering if I should expect something to come of this or if I somehow received a miracle?
Pretty unusual. But it depends on which testing device was used - portable preliminary breath test (PBT) or the...
