Do I still need to install interlock device after 2 years
I received a dui 2 years ago. I have paid all fines but I still haven't installed an interlock device. I have gotten use to riding my bicycle. License has been suspended for 2 years now. Do I still need to install the interlock for the 6 months to get my license reinstated?
Does your consent judgment, probation terms provide for a 2 year suspension first and then an additional 6 months of...
LAPD officer cited me for DUI, he didnt impound my Car! I got home he got my last name all wrong, my DL number is not on it ..
My last name is all wrong, my DL number is not even on the citation!! What should I do??
Contact the DMV within 10 days of the arrest and hire an attorney. Just because there is a mistake does not mean it...
How long is an operator's (officer) certification valid in California for breathalyzer?
I found through discovery that officer was initially certified 8 years ago. Is there a requirement for refresher courses or re-certification in California?
The operator does not need to be re-certified, but California requires a calibration check of the machine to be...
Am I obligated to pay for the instructor's "no show" DUI classes?
I am on the 3 months court ordered DUI program. On 3 occasions the instructor didn't show up, so after 10 minutes the entire group went home with the credit for the class given but also charged for the class as it actually took place as well. Is it up to the facility to decide it or there is some law dictating whether the charges can be applied or not.
I know of no law on the matter. You might check with your attorney. I guess as long as you are getting credit you do...
Would I be able to avoid a DWI?
I was pulled over for passing an officer on the freeway. I complied with the field test but declined the Breathalyzer. I had 5 drinks in the span of 4 hours and was afraid to blow over. I was arrested for suspicion and I took the blood test 2.5 hours later. The officers didn't take my license so i don't have to contact the DMW. A DUI is not likely since the officers returned my licence and I'm estimating my BAC will be along 0.02-0.04. Is a "wet reckless" likely? This is a first offence.
You aren't going to get a meaningful answer from a stranger on the Internet, especially without the actual test results....
Unemployable due to DUI and drug possession charges in 2013?
In July 2013, I was arrested for 11377 (F), 23152 (M), and 11550 (M). It was my first arrest. My lawyer said that he split my case into two separate case numbers in order for me to be accepted into the diversion program, as the DUI charges would have prevented me from getting into it. I never really understood the rationale he gave me. I successfully completed the required alcohol and drug classes. In August 2015, my now-former employer laid a bunch of us off. Since then, everyone has found work except for me. I am panicking because I haven't even received one phone call requesting an interview. I have a sinking feeling that my arrest record is to blame. Would Prop 47 help me out by reducing my felony drug possession charge to a misdemeanor? What about expungement?
Prop 47 would most likely reduce the felony to a misdemeanor. A 17(b) reduction to a misdemeanor might be better for...
Is there any way to get credit for past courses for DUI schools?
Back in 1991 I was convicted for my second DUI. Over the last 2 and 1/2 decades I have tried to complete this course. I need to know if there is any way to get credit for my past courses? And is there a way that I can get a restricted license?
You need to go to DMV and get a referral to complete the SB 38 program. But if you never did it, there is probably a...
