What do you do if ordered an IID x 16 months and you have not owned a vehicle to install it in and now its been 5 years?
Aggravated DUI with bodily injury and high BAC 1st offense in 2012 (WV). Did not own a car then but was ordered an IID x 16 months. That was almost 5 yrs. ago and still don't have a car, so have never been able to install the IID, can license ever get reinstated? All fines are paid, dui classes are completed, did required jail time.
There is an exception to the mandatory interlock and that is "incapable status" as in I don't own a vehicle and no one...
Will I be able to get a restricted licence in WV for a second offence DUI received in PA?
I was on pain management for a close to a year and decided to get off of them. I bought a dose of buprenorphine off the the street to wean off it. I was in the final stages of this when I got pulled over and I was taken in for a blood draw and charged with a third tier DUI because I had a measurable amount in my blood. I hired an incompetent lawyer who thought I would get ARD and really did nothing to negotiate my plea agreement or show that the officer didn't have a good reason to preform this blood draw. This is my second DUI, previous one was in 2008. I was offered house arrest and a 18 month driver's licence suspension. My question is if I have a west virginia licence can I apply for a restricted licence to drive to work and/or school or what not?
Best to hire a competent lawyer our guesses won't help and will be worse than the incompetent lawyers advice. Perhaps...

Personal DUI in WV with PA CDL?
first and foremost, i am a Pennsylvania resident with a CDL, but i rent a place in WV where the incident occurred. i had a minor accident in my personal car due to severe weather. it didn't cause any property damage or anything, just the car itself. instead of walking 1/4mi home like a smart person, i fell asleep in the car. well, someone called the police and i was arrested for "Aggravated DUI"(BAC 0.2x). ive done a lot of googling, and from what i understand this would probably be treated as a first offense, despite my three priors(two first offenses in PA 1999, one second offense in WV 2005). where im confused is with the license suspension part of it. WV has a DMV hearing and a criminal hearing separately. im told that even if i can get the criminal charges reduced, i still have to face the DMV part of it, which is nearly impossible to beat, and will result in a license suspension. however, PA doesnt have this seperate DMV hearing. if its dismissed/reduced in criminal court, its dismissed/reduced altogether. if i can manage to get the criminal charges reduced, how will this affect my Pennsylvania license?
While not a 100%, It’s highly likely that when the WV DMV takes your CDL privilege here for life (due to prior(s)),...

Can I get the WV DMV to remove the DUI-Court Conviction off my driving record?
I have a DUI from 2010 that was lowered to reckless driving charge in the courts and another DUI from 2011 that ended with a misdemeanor 1st time DUI charge in the courts. When I talked to the lady at the WV DMV and mentioned that the 2010 DUI had been lowered to a reckless driving charge in the courts, she told me the DMV doesn’t report court convictions. But on the WV DMV driving record both DUI’s are listed in the conviction section and also the withdrawal section, but the 2011 DUI misdemeanor is also listed in the withdrawal section as a “DUI- Court Conviction”. This is persistently misinterpreted as three (3) DUI’s rather than the two (2) actual DUI’s. Can I argue that the “DUI-Court Conviction” should not be listed on the driving record because the “DUI- Lowered to Reckless Driving” is not listed on the driving record? I would prefer to have the WV DMV remove the “DUI-Court Conviction” from the driving record all together!! Is that possible? If not, should the DMV also list the “DUI- Lowered to Reckless Driving”? I feel including the “DUI- Lowered to Reckless Driving” may even be more misleading and cause the report to be misinterpreted as four (4) DUI’s instead of two!
