Helpful tips and chance of ever getting my license in the future after DUI.
As a 17 year old student, I was arrested last night for a DUI dealing with marijuana. I feel terrible for what I did and feel complete responsibility and guilt. My life is being changed around, due to this eye-opening and complete act of stupidity. I do not believe i even obtain the right to drive but out of curiousity i would like to know what actions I should take legally to better my chances of not ruining my carreer and future. I do not have my license yet, but only my permit and was wondering how long I will have to wait to drive again.

Can I get into the 12 hour DUI class even though I lost my DMV hearing?
I did not get a lawyer for my DUI case. I lost the DMV hearing I handled on my own. I went into court with a government lawyer and was offered a wet reckless. The public defender will not help me with DMV. I went to enroll in the DUI class. Do I have to take the 3 month class or can we try to get that 12 hour class? I am confused about which one I need to take for DMV purspoes. Someone said that since I lost the DMV hearing I am hosed. Please help me. Thank you

When should I get my restricted license?
I have a DUI charge. I have no record. I am currently being represented by a public defender who told me she cannot talk to me about my license and the DMV. I have court next month and I believe I will be pleading guilty to a DUI. I believe my BAC was .14%. I am about to be eligible to get my restricted license. The suspension went into effect on February 3. Should I get my restricted license or wait until our next date of March 24? I heard someone in my OHS class say if I get a restricted license now I will have to do it again. Please help me understand what is best. Thank you.
The best thing for you to do is hire a private attorney to take over your case. A .14 is not necessarily a case that...
How long do I need to have an Interlock device on for from a 2nd DUI?
I went to court and resolved a 2nd time DUI. I had a low blood alcohol level and due to being cooperative I got a break and had fair terms. I heard I do not have to wait the year out for the suspension and can get a restricted license if I get the interlock device in my car. How long do I have to keep the interlock device on for if I decide to get it? I have tried calling the number to Sacramento but I cannot get in touch with anyone. Information is appreciated.
Second time offenders are generally required to have the device installed for 12 months

“I was not breathalyzed or blood drawn before or after i was arrested for a mis DUI
I had just got off work (brewery) I had an 8 oz glass of beer an hour before work ended and went to my car and had a crushed windshield. I was alone in parking lot in a very dark and secluded area and thought it best to just try and drive home. My bad judgement was not driving under the influence but driving with s broken windshield. I came upon a check point and upon entering hit a cone because there were three lanes merging and I could properly see out my window. The officers found two month old coors light cans. I was arrested. I was not breathalyzed, not did they take blood. many saw when I left work I was sober, even officers commented. "We can let this one go" I was also not read my rights. Do I have any chance of getting rid of this?
You may have have a defensible case that can be handled prefile, or before the DA has actually issued any charges. A...
