I have an interlock BAID machine in my vehicle and I blew a 0.1840 into it the morning after drinking
I am looking for a response that will guide me on what to say to the letter of explanation that I received from the secretary of state, The evening before I blew positive I was out for a special occasion and we were drinking margaritas from 7pm until 11:30pm, Afterwards we went home and the next morning I went to go to work at 8:40am and failed the breathalyzer start up test a couple different times, I ended up getting a ride to work though a co worker, Around 340pm I went home for lunch and tried again and it failed again at a lower 0.0550 reading, What would be the best thing to say to the state? I am not trying to lie to them but need to have a reasonable explanation to why I failed, Please advise on what could happen as this is my first positive reading.
All you can do is tell the truth. You did not provide enough information to answer what will happen to you. If you...
Should I get a lawyer to get my 20 year revoked Illinois driver's license back after two DUIs?
Should I get a lawyer to get my 20 year revoked Illinois driver's license back after two DUIs? I have had two DUIs, both involving an accident. The first one was in 1986, and I blew a 3. something. The second one was in 1992, and the other party was injured. I did not blow for that one. My Illinois driver's license was revoked. I tried to get it back some time ago but was denied. I have now been sober for the last nine years. I do not go to AA meetings very much, do not have a sponsor, but still manage to stay sober. How do I get my revoked license back after 20 years? Do you know the approximate costs involved? What steps should I take to get the license back?
License Reinstatement following DUI convictions is complicated and without a lawyer, the process can be confusing and...
Do I need a lawyer to get my revoked driver's license back? I've had 2 DUI's, last one was in 1992.
About 10 years ago, I hired a lawyer, and went for my formal hearing, but the state denied me. (which is actually good because I was still drinking). Now I have been sober for 6 years, have gone off & on to AA meetings, which make me nervous because I'm a private person. I belong to an online AA group, but do not have a sponser. What are my chances of getting my license back?
Hire a lawyer. Search Avvo or go to www.ncdd.com to find the best in your area. Good luck!
Is SR-22 discontinuation automatic?
When the 3 year requirement has ended, do I need to take proactive steps to contact my insurance company or the state, or does it automatically cease? Can I then go ahead and shop for insurance if I choose to do so without worrying about that requirement any longer? I want to ensure there are no surprises with the SOS as this is the final remnant of an ugly chapter in life. I want to keep everything golden after all the diligence and hard work. Thank you!
Call your carrier and ask to remove the SR22 when it expires. Thereafter, if you wish to shop for cheaper or better...
Does a supervision count as a conviction? ( 2 or more convictions increases reinstatement fee & duration of baiid usage )
DUI conviction. License revoked. All fines and court ordered requirements satisfied. All receipts and certificates of completion in my possession. Driving record indicates 1 supervision for 1983 DUI and 1 conviction for 2015 DUI. Approaching 1 year of revocation and am going for reinstatement.
Supervision is not a conviction. The rest of your facts do not seem to lead up to a question.
Does the Illinois Secretary of State hold the ground to keep my license suspended even after the charges were dropped?
I was convicted of possession of a fake ID in a city in Wisconsin where the charge is just a civil infraction. I however live in Illinois and a few weeks later after the court date, I received a letter from the Illinois Secretary of State saying that my drivers license was suspended. I immediately hired a Wisconsin State attorney and re-opened the case in Wisconsin and in the end got the charges dropped. It has now been 3 weeks since they were dropped and I'm basically just paying a waiting game seeing if the Illinois Secretary of State will re-instate my license. Since the original charges were dropped I believe they have no evidence or reason to keep it suspended. But after reading this (https://www.illinois.gov/ilcc/All%20documents%20site%20wide/Education/Under%2021/Materials/MinorFakeIdEnglish.pdf) PDF, it states that a license (for this charge) can be suspended "without conviction". Since this is one of few laws in Illinois "without conviction" is used in, I am really unsure if Secretary of State will give my driver license back.
I would suspect that the Secretary of State suspended you under a law that gives them authority to take action based...
What will likely happen to me when I'ma disabled & cannot afford to pay my fines & now received a revoke supervision letter?
I received a DUI on 2/7/15. I own up to the fact that I did that. There are underlying circumstances that lead e to this. I am disabled with a kidney disease. At the time of my arrest I was suffering from severe kidney stone pain. Actually ended up having surgery a week later. Being that I am disabled. I survive on a fixed income from the government. I have medications that I have to purchase, as well as living expenses & simply cannot afford the fines. I also cannot afford the classes that I am supposed to pay either. I've now received a letter in the mail for a revoke suspension, I'm scared.
We would need a lot more information to advise you. For instance, you say you "own up to the fact." I assume by that...
