I have a DWI SES Class D Felony Conviction, I was wondering if there is a way of reinstating my Drivers License.
It's been four years since my last conviction which was my third DWI.
If you are unable to get a license in MO, you may be able to in CO.
Suspension/revocation of license?
My ex got cited for driving on a suspended/revoked license and failure to stay in one lane on a 3 or more lane road. What is going to happen with this (likely outcome)? I only ask because we have a family court case we are in and his license has obviously been suspended for some time and he was driving my children around with no license and I did not know until now. This suspension/revocation was for a DWI and that case is still going on too though he's under a suspended sentence (for now). What's possible outcomes in this situation?
The answer depends on how the DWS is charged. Take a look at Section 302.321. Punishment on a DWS can be as low as a $...

I was refused the opportunity to file for trial de novo for license suspension.
I attempted to apply for a trial de novo following an administrative hearing with the Department of Revenue in Farmington MO. I was advised at the St. Francois County District III Court clerks office that only an attorney could apply for a trial de novo, an individual could not apply. How is this not a violation of my civil rights?? I can represent myself in court proceedings but I can't file motions for those proceedings...that doesn't sound like correct information to me!! Is this a violation of my civil rights? If so what can I do now??
You are complaining about what happened in an admisintrative hearing not a criminal proceeding. They probably have...

Something fishy about this Field Sobriety procedure. ??
An officer had me do several field sobriety tests (fst). Nystagmus test, walk and pivot and one legged stand. All seemed to go well. He then had me blow in the breathalyzer. His partner motioned to see the result. The officer refused stating “I got this”. As though he wasn’t satisfied he had me do another test that I’ve never heard of. He had me stand with my feet together, arms down at my side with my head tilted back, eyes closed. Then told me to count from 30 backwards. I did this. As I completed my counting, 3, 2, 1, 0. The officer then finished his counting out loud… 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0. He then immediately grabbed my arms behind me and cuffed me stating "your under arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs." Is this for real? I've never heard of it.
The officer gave you what is called The Rhomberg Test; however, it is really a modified Rhomberg for DWI purposes....
