Is it possible to have a DUI expunged from criminal record, or are they permanent?
I was very young - 23 I think. I haven't had s DUI since. I would like to have it expunged. Is that possible, or are DUIs ineligible?

Had Warn, Failed test, and Missed test days after hearing. Will this be a problem for my reinstatement?
Over 10 months with no failed test or violations. A few days ago I blew into head unit to start my vehicle for work and the screen on the head went blank while still powered. While the head display still did not show text test results or icons it gave the usual beeping signal as if I had passed the test. I started my car thinking that would reset screen but it did not. After a min or so I shut the engine off to see if that would reset screen. Immediately after I shut engine off it gave me the beeping signal for a test once more(screen still blank) so I blew once more. A few seconds later Missed test text appeared on display. Had this issue once prior with no, warn, failed test or missed test but service shop found no problems. Stopped trying to start my car at that point and waited for service provider to open. After an hr I spoke to shop tech who told me to try again. Car started with no issues the second time. Drove to shop had unit check and found that device recorded a Warning, failed test and missed test in the span of 4 mins and within seconds of each other. Shop found no problem with device but replaced head any way. I had my hearing days before I experienced problems.
