What would you recommend? DUI 19yo.
I got in an accident and got three charges, DUI, open container, and underage possession of alcohol. Keep in mind I'm 19. What would you recommend I do before court? I registered to take a driver's improvement class already. Is there anything else I can do to make this look like I am trying? Also, i can't afford a lawyer right now, so I'll have to get one appointed. Should I try to speak with someone at the court house before the court date, or wait until the first court date?
If you can not afford an attorney, you need to speak with one now, before the court date. If you were appointed the...

How I get driver's license back if ASAP was unsuccessfully completed but case was dimiss for dui but guilty for drug 4yrs ago ?
It was 4 yrs ago so dui case was dismissed. Drug possession case I was found guilty because ASAP program was unsuccessfully completed. I took ASAP classes and finished.

Can I travel while on probation after a state to state transfer?
I was convicted of a felony DUI (serious injury) in NC in mid-July. At the time of the offense (the previous August), I lived in NC but have since moved to VA. My probation was transferred to Virginia. Because of this conviction I unexpectedly lost my original job. I have found a new job, but will need to travel outside of the state for initial training. I have looked for employment in this area but have not been able to find anything. The terms of my probation require me to make substantial payments to the victim, so finding employment at a similar level as previously is important. Will I be able to get a permit to travel outside of the state after only a month and a half of probation?
You need to check with your probation officer to see what the exact restrictions of your probation are. If your...
I have a VA License with and out of state DUI
To get a restricted license I had to sign up for VASAP, but now VASAP is requiring me to complete VASAP and the out of state program. VASAP told me that if I just completed the out of state program (where I'm on probation) that I would already have my VA license, but since I received a restricted license I have to comply with both the out of state probation and VASAP. I've been told repeatedly that VASAP has no right to do so. Is there a simple answer here? Thanks.
The relevant law seems to be set forth in section D of 18.2-271.1 and I have included it below for your reference. As...
