Can I get a restricted Virginia license to travel to work in Tennessee where my license is revoked?
I got a first DUI in Tennessee in October, 2015 and had my rights to drive in TN revoked. I requested a restricted license to drive in TN but the courts said no since I wasn't a TN resident. I then requested a restricted license in VA but they said no, since I hadn't broken any laws in Virginia. Recently, Virginia (my home state) revoked my license due to receiving information from TN. Since I work in TN, I need a restricted license to drive to work. Can I get a restricted VA license and drive in TN to work? I have completed all of my TN requirements...will VA take these or must I complete them in again in VA? I have went to the VA DMV and to my local courthouse to request help but they state that with TN it may be a problem and I'm not getting anywhere. Please advise.

Appeal DUI?
Hello, I was arrested for a DUI. I followed legal advice and entered a plea deal but am not certain I was given the best counsel. I had 2.5 beers, waited 1.5 hours to drive. I made a wrong turn because the tint on my car is dark and I couldn’t see the divider in a poorly lit area. I was pulled over and did not know I didn’t have to blow for the street test. Trooper did not give me an option. He also did not tell me what I blew on the street until later on but what he told me I blew (.0865) and what he put on paperwork (.092) is quite different. Trooper said I failed field sobriety tests too but both my lawyer and I feel/felt otherwise. However because bac machine at station was calibrated correctly and I blew .12 and there was probable cause to pull me over and no video of field tests, he said I had no case. This is my first offense and a clean driving record with no background. I am being told by friends and family to appeal. Do I have a case?
You cannot appeal a plea of guilty. By entering into such a deal you admitted to having driven while under the...
