Getting back Drivers License in Florida after DUI. I haven't driven a car for 5 years
Dear Sir or Madam I am in Florida. Back in December 2009 I had a DUI. I did go to court in 2010. but before I went, right after the arrest, I sold the car so no ignition lock was needed. Judge gave me 6 months probation, DUI school, 50 hrs community service and $ fines.. I completed all of the requirements, but since I sold the car, I've been using the public transportation since 2010. So now I would like to get my license back, and I am trying to find out what else might be needed? Extra insurance FR44, more classes, more fines...Or since I have been in the clear for 5 years, all I need to do is make an appointment with the DMV office. Thank you very much! Rumen

My license was suspended for DUI and is for business use only until October 5th. When exactly can I drive freely again?
As a part of my punishment for my DUI, I had my driving privileges restricted. I currently have a hardship license, which is for business use only until October 5th. Does this mean that October 5th is my first day that I'm eligible to drive again? Or is it my last day of the suspension? Also, am I required to get a new license right away, or can I do it whenever I feel?
Your license remains technically suspended until you give the DMV some money and reinstate your license. Contact the...
Does wrong information on a blood test sheet make it unusable in court?
If you are charged with a DUI and the document for your blood sample with your information is wrong (e.g. Birthday is off by the month, day and year, eye color, height and weight) could that get the blood test thrown out?
Perhaps a skilled attorney can cross examine so that the error show the test report is about someone else entirely?...
If somebody gets charged with a small amount of heroine and gets a 3rd DUI a week later, what are the consequences? Jail time?

I was just arrested for DUI, and I blew over .15 and received two citations? can I fight it?
one of the citations is for i guess regular dui, the other citation is for dui over .15. I read the punishments online, and I would rather be convicted of regular dui then dui over .15. I was not drunk, i was pulled over for speeding, addmitted to drinking 2 -3 beers at my shop, and did FSE's. I was scared while doing the FSE's and i didnt tumble over or anything. I then did the breathalzyer. Is it possible at trial that I can get a not guilty on the dui over .15 and a guilty on the regaulr dui? thank you
Possible but not likely. You do not get to choose the crime you are charged with. What you need to do is hire a private...
