Any recourse with DMV and maybe Smart Start? Several problems with their interlocks.
My Smart Start interlock (set at .04) registered between .015 and .025 for 30 minutes, 3 minutes later, .04, then .096. 3 minutes later, .021 then .016. DMV threatens suspension.
Take it in to be checked. And make sure you file a request for a hearing with DMV. You could also consider hiring an...
What if I skip state before the conviction of my dui?
Went to hearing and had continences, no plea yet. Any chance I could leave and have a liscence in another state?

I am applying for an NC medical license but plead guilty to a DWI last year. Will this limit my ability to get a license?
I recently completed medical school but unfortunately got a DWI between graduation and applying for my medical license. I have informed my residency program; they are aware but have not rescinded their offer. Soon I will be applying for a trainee medical license. Will there be an issue? I have no other legal history.
It will be an "issue" but it won't be a disqualifier. They are going to ask you about it, and want to know what steps (...
Is a DUI assessment confidential, given only to the judge?
The assessment is not shared with employers or licensing boards?
A DWI assessment is used by the Court to determine sentencing and/or treatment options. Technically, it's not required...
How will my NY DWAI (Under .07 BAC) transfer to NC?
Approximately 1.5 yrs ago I was convicted of a DWAI in New York State (DWAI BAC under .07, a traffic violation as opposed to a misdemeanor). I have just moved to NC and will be transferring my license shortly. I understand that most states share information with a license transfer, however there is no statute for DWAI in NC. Only the greater charge of DWI. I really am scared that through the transfer the NC DMV will up-charge me to a DWI. I spent a lot of time and money ensuring that I was not convicted of a DWI. Can someone please give me some insight into this / whether I have any recourse if they do list my conviction as a DWI? Thank you
When you refer to convictions "transferring" you are essentially talking about the Interstate Compact which links of...
Do I still have to have an interlock device put on my car?
I got a DUI in NC in May of 2010. I was ordered to not drive for a year and then to have an interlock device put on my car for a year. I had to sell my car to pay my lawyer and never got an interlock device, I just stopped driving. Since it is past the period that I would have had the device, if I go to get a license now do I still need to get the interlock? Is there any way to fight this? I need a valid license for a job I'm applying to but still won't have a car.
Yesw, you need the interlock. You are saying if I just ignore it, it will go away. Get a clue.
Will I be able to reinstate my FL DL after a DUI in GA in 2009?
I just went to court and finally handled my DUI. My Florida licensed expired in 2012 & I have not driven since. I actually live in North Carolina and was going to apply for a NC license after I finish DUI school and have my driving ban lifted in GA. I just recently did a driver's license check in FL and realized that my license in FL is revoked/due to the DUI. Want to know if FL will accept the 16 hour certificate class that I take in NC & if I will be able to get my license reinstated there. I am not certain if I can apply for a license in NC if I have a suspended license in another state. Thank you for your help.
