Got 2nd DUI last Sept. in California but have moved to Boston. Didn't get a restricted license. How can I get LI in MA.
I got convicted for my 2nd DUI in Redwood City CA last September (first one 6 years prior in Santa Clara CA), and have moved to Boston MA. I got my DUI classes transferred to online by the court and did not opt for a restricted license while in CA. Can I apply for a license in Boston through Termination of Action in CA? When can I do that -- I was told after a year but when I called the Mandatory Actions Unit, the clerk told me it was a 2-year suspension and that I could not apply for Termination of Action for 2-year?!?! Is this correct? How can I obtain my license in MA now? Please help.

I do not believe you can seal it is against the FBI or the state police
Can I study abroad in Australia with a pending DUI?
Three nights ago I was arrested for a DUI. I refused to take a breathalyzer. I have my hearing tomorrow and I live in Massachusetts.
