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!
Actually, upon successful completion of AEP, you may apply to the court for an expungement of your arrest record....
