Does anyone know where I can find a list of approved first offenders DUI class in Washington State?
Got a DUI in California and will be moving to WA for work. Court ordered to enroll in a first offender DUI class in WA and send proof of completion.

I am getting charged with a Drug DUI with a blood result .20mg oxycottin. How would this be handled differently from Alcohol.
I got pulled over because the officer said I was going 59 in a 50 when I had my car set on cruse control? He makes a brief statement saying that my thinking process is slow, so he asks me to do a sobriety test and didn't do so good I guess cause it was freezing and made me take my heels off so I was barefoot. What the officer also didn't consider was I have Mental Problems for my slow thinking and slow learner. I get handcuffed and put in the back of the police car, He didn't give me a evaluation and takes me straight to the hospital to draw my blood. After he was going to let me go he decides to keep me because I have a baby father who was on Washingtons Most Wanted. I get questioned about his where a bout and they told me I would go to jail if I don't tell. But never had a option.
It will not be handled differently than alcohol, if WA law is similar to CO. Impairment is the issue whether by drugs...

DUI amended to reckless, second DUI now what is going to happen
In 2008 I had a DUI amended to reckless driving, and now in 2011 I got a new DUI. While in court yesterday my public defender and the judge were uncertain as to the way this would effect my license? My public defender thinks it will only suspend my license for 90 days yet the judge thinks it would be 2 years. Either way my public defender said I could get an interlock license and still drive. Can I get some clarification as to the consequences if I just admit guilt and take the 230 days in jail??
The judge is correct. The new DUI would be considered a second DUI for all sentencing purposes. The length of the...
I was arrested for dui on 9/26/10 and still have received a court date, how much time does the state have to arraign me?
133 days have passed, can I request a motion to dismiss if I'm receive a court date?
I believe the state has two years to file the charges. I have seen charging take anywhere from six months to one year.
