Why do I have to pay a $700 fine to the DMV of a state I don't get a dui in?
Got a dui in North Dakota with a Minnesota drivers license. At the time of being convicted I was a resident of North Dakota. Now Minnesota won't allow me to get a license in North Dakota until I fill out bunch of forms and pay them $700. I am wondering why this is? Why I have to pay a fine to a state I did not commit a crime in?
It is not a fine, it is a cost. Just as you have costs for a myriad of things, such as the actual driver's license....
Is it possible to get my license automatically suspended after being arrested for a DUI?
I was pulled over and arrested for a DUI. The police officer informed me of the court date and was never informed that my license would automatically be suspended. Probably weeks after, I was pulled over for since my tabs were expired and I just had them renewed. According to the police officer, my license was suspended. What do i do and how do I deal with this. Thank you.
Yes. When you were arrested for DUI (assuming they gave you a breath test as opposed to a blood test--for blood tests,...
How can North Dakota suspend a license if you have already applied for and received a license from another state (such as MN)?
I recently was charged with a DWI. I was living in MN but had not switched to a MN drivers license and was still licensed in ND. After being arrested and released I was informed to pay my fines and retake my tests to receive my MN drivers license. This was completed within 4 days of my offense and I was licensed in MN with the condition that I have IID.
Three months after my offense I now received a letter stating my ND license is revoked for 180 days even though I no longer hold a ND license and have not since the incident. Neither the MN nor ND DMV have been any help with the issue. If I do not have a ND license anymore can they still revoke my driving privileges? As of right now I drive with a valid MN license and IID system. Any help would be great! No one in this area has dealt with this issue in the past.
ND suspended your license because that is where you were licensed at the time you received your DWI. Because of...
My question is do I have a chance of getting out of this or getting the charges lowered to a lesser plea.
I had a couple of beers with my friends and after I was done with 2 beers I was on my way home. I was 63 in a 55 when I got stopped by the highway patrol. The officer ask if I was drinking I told him I had a couple earlier. He then ask me to do the field sobriety test which I past everything with flying colors. Then he had me do a Breathalyzer test which I blew a 0.82 then he gave me another one 4 minutes after that one which I blew a 0.78 then he gave me another one 3 minutes after that one which I blew a 0.74. The officer then arrested me for DUI and took me to jail which was a 10 to 15 minute ride and there they gave me a more accurate test which had a result of 0.68 and they told me that I was going to be charged with the DUI any ways.

I got a DUI in winter of 2015. I've been making monthly payments. I missed a payment in the spring and had an order to show cause hearing. Now I missed another payment because I was on vacation for 2 weeks and wasn't working. I have another order to show cause hearing.
The fact that you did not pay because you were on vacation will not look good, i.e. you had money to pay for a vacation,...
