Will my license be suspended after I complete my AEP (Alcohol Education Program)?
Down at senior week, I made a bad decision of getting into a car with alcohol and we was pulled over on the strip and gave two tickets, MIP & Open Container. The cop didn't arrest us but gave us tickets and told us she would recommend us for PTI because we just graduated High School and we had scholarships we couldn't afford to lose. I have never, ever been in trouble with the law before or in trouble at all. I didn't use my PTI but I found out about AEP and I have enrolled in it. I'm almost done with my AEP but somebody mentioned after I complete my AEP, my license will be suspended. If that was the case, wouldn't my license have done been suspended from getting the tickets? Is that true? HELP!

The alcohol violations might make you ineligible. Contact a lawyer with experience in this field and bring a copy of...

If I am licensed in SC and received a DUI in GA will SC suspend my license?
About a year and a half ago I got pulled over for DUI in GA. I live and am licensed in SC. We hired an attorney and have been fighting it and this week had our final court date. One Friday we found out our last motion was denied and they will be offering a final plea bargain. We either have to accept it or take it to jury trial (which we won't do). Will SC suspend my license for this?
The clerk may well report the final charge to the DMV in S.C. Depending on the conviction you may have your license...
