Can I get a driver's license in Washington state if my license is suspended in Virginia?
My driver's license has been suspended for 10 years through the courthouse in my town in Virginia due to court fines (some are traffic-related that was the reason for my suspension but the suspensions were only for 6 months and those are over with but) the court has suspended my driver's license because I have not been able to pay for my court fines which is stupid... why suspend ones driver's license so they're unable to get a job and drive to work or drive a company vehicle etc. so that way it would prevent them from making money to pay their fines... So anyway... I owe around $2,500 at the courthouse Plus I will have to pay a $500 uninsured motorist fee plus reinstatement fee which would be $650 total. that is here in the state of Virginia and it is almost $5,000 that I would need that would include court fines DMV fines and then getting my vehicles prepaired for inspection (they have been sitting for a great deal of time...) and insured and tagged etc. So I am living here in Virginia with a suspended driver's license and a felony record that prevents me from being able to work and support my family I want to move to Washington State to start all over again, what to do?
Get a clear license. whether stupid or not until you get a license the other state will not issue you one.
Do I need to reinstate my WV license in order to renew my VA license?
Charged w DUI in WV ~ 6 years ago , moved to VA & obtained VA license in 2007 . I went to VA DMV Friday to renew and learned for the first time that WV entered me in the National Driver Database as ineligible to drive in WV therefore I can't renew my VA license . I know I have to take the classes , get an evaluation and pay out - of - state fee but do I also need to pay to have my WV license reinstated before WV will remove this ineligibility and I can get my VA license renewed ?
Generally you have to get a clearance letter from the state DOT/DMV before another state will allow you to receive...
Appeal DUI?
Hello, I was arrested for a DUI. I followed legal advice and entered a plea deal but am not certain I was given the best counsel. I had 2.5 beers, waited 1.5 hours to drive. I made a wrong turn because the tint on my car is dark and I couldn’t see the divider in a poorly lit area. I was pulled over and did not know I didn’t have to blow for the street test. Trooper did not give me an option. He also did not tell me what I blew on the street until later on but what he told me I blew (.0865) and what he put on paperwork (.092) is quite different. Trooper said I failed field sobriety tests too but both my lawyer and I feel/felt otherwise. However because bac machine at station was calibrated correctly and I blew .12 and there was probable cause to pull me over and no video of field tests, he said I had no case. This is my first offense and a clean driving record with no background. I am being told by friends and family to appeal. Do I have a case?
You cannot appeal a plea of guilty. By entering into such a deal you admitted to having driven while under the...
