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.

What can I do to get my DUI reduced?
I had a panic attack while driving under the influence.. pulled over, got out and started walking. The passenger, more drunk than I, knocked on a near by house to borrow a phone to get help. Someone called the police. When I found my way back the cops were there and they searched me, did the roadside tests etc. I admitted I was the driver of the car which was parked near by. I didn't have the keys in my possession or anything. But I did admit it. The bac recorded in my paperwork was .11 I have no prior record and only 1 speeding ticket. Is there a possibility of getting this reduced?
It will depend on the Commonwealth Attorney and Judge. You need to consult a local attorney in the county or city in...
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...
Can a DUI charge be added later?
My daughter was involved in a single vehicle accident with property damage only. The officer administered field sobriety tests which she failed. Her portable breathalyzer results were .157. At the officers discretion, the officer did not charge my daughter with a DUI, only reckless driving. Can the DA add a DUI charge with just the FST?
If she was charged with reckless then there probably was no dui investigation or evidence gathered. The PBT is not...
