How long will a dui stay on my driving record in Minnesota does it change anything if I was 16?
So I was 16 years old and I received a DUI of alcohol, let's not mistake this for a DWI, how long will the dui stay on my record and my driving record? I live in Minnesota, I am currently 19 going on 20.
Mistake it for a DWI? What's the difference? In Minnesota, DWI/DUIs are permanent unless the court grants an expungement.

How can I avoid another suspension on my license?
I was convicted of a DWI in September. Went to arraignment, pled guilty. Soon before the revocation was scheduled to end, I had to drive to work--I had to already take so many days off due to not being able to drive--nobody could give me a ride, and the public transit had stopped running. I was caught driving after revocation. Officer cited me and informed me of the Driver Diversion Program. I would apply for it--but I also need to not have my license suspended for another 30 days after my revocation is lifted. I scheduled a hearing to contest my DAR citation--should I do that, or if I'm eligible for DDP, should I cancel? What chance do I have of getting this dismissed and me on the road again asap? I found out DDP takes 3-4 wks to process. Do I have a good chance to win by contesting?

Should I plead guilty to my DWI charge to get a reduced sentence? If I plead not guilty, can I still get a limited license?
I was pulled over for a broken headlight, and the officer tested me for sobriety. Given the breathalyzer, blew a .11. Go for an arraignment on Thursday. If I plead guilty to the DWI charge, will I get my sentence reduced to 30 days? If I plead not guilty, could the sentence be possibly reduced to reckless driving on that same-day arraignment court appearance? If I can get it reduced to reckless driving, can I still get a limited license on the 90-day revocation period? I need to drive for work, and I just need to be able to get back in my car as soon as possible. I know how a DWI affects my record, so I'm wondering if I can still be able to have a limited license if I plead not guilty. I can't afford an attorney. Will I still be able to apply for a limited license if this goes to court?
No attorney here can tell you what exactly will unfold in your personal case: That would be irresponsible. Persons who...
