With a DUI conviction is a interlock device a condition the judge makes for you to get your license reinstated?
I have 2 DUI convictions from over 5 years ago. I'm looking at the conditions of my probation? The judge never made it a condition for me to get a device interlock installed to drive? The mandatory actions unit in sac is saying I don't need it to get my license reinstated? If the judge never made it a condition? Does that mean I am not required to get it?
If it is not a term of your probation and DMV is stating that you do not need it, you might have answered your own...

What are my chances of getting my DUI charge reduced?
I was sitting in my car on the side of a freeway in Contra Costa County when I was approached by an officer and ultimately arrested for drunk driving. I was not asked to complete a sobriety test nor read my Miranda rights. At the police station, I was given a Breathalyzer and blew a .16. I believe I'm almost positive I heard the officer say that those results were not being recorded - does that make any sense? Finally, I am not from California and although I am currently living here for work, I was hoping to relocate at the beginning of next year (~five months at the latest) Any chance of this even being possible? I was very cooperative throughout the arrest and following events.
California is a volitional movement state, meaning that you must have been driving to be convicted of drunk driving....
Can i contest a 3yr old drug DUI conviction
I recently learned that just because a drug may be in your system , it doesnt mean you are under the influance. Had i known that i would have faught mine conviction 3 yrs prior. Its my first on only DUI. The last three yrs of no driving has been costly. Id like to conest my conviction with this new discovery. Is there a statue with the courts or DMV?
Yes plus it sounds like you entered a plea and did not go to trial and lose. So you cannot appeal. You can file a...
DUI conviction following trial - court never sent abstract to DMV so license is valid...can I still legally drive?
Trial concluded several months ago. DMV driver history report available for purchase online still shows no conviction and license listed as **VALID**. No specific order from the court at sentencing re: license suspension, only to enroll in (and presumably, complete) DUI class. Also received formal H6 from local DMV (for class enrollment) which states same: License VALID, no convictions reported. Is it my responsibility to inform the DMV of conviction so that I can use proof of enrollment in classes to apply for restricted license, or am I legally allowed to drive without going to further trouble (except, of course, regularly checking license status via DMV online portal)?
Yes, maybe. This does happen more often than you'd think. Before doing so, however, I would double check the minute...
