Tricky situation with a past DUI and an SR-22 filing. Please help!
Hello! Years ago, I recieved a DUI with a California license, while I was a resident in the state of Kentucky in the state of Kentucky. After I fulfilled all of my requirements, I was told that I was on probation for 3 years to California even though I don't live there, and that I had to have an SR22. I found a non-owners SR22 for $30 dollars a month and had that for about a a year and a half. Then all of a sudden the policy changed to $200 dollars a month and I was out of the country so I couldn't afford it. So I had to cancel my insurance and my license is suspended again. I will have to get a new SR22 going again when I get home and working. My question is, will my 3 month probation period start all over again or will it still be only 3 months from original conviction? I'm just hoping I didn't waste a year and a half of SR22 payments for nothing. I'm really just wanting to be free from California and move on with my life. I just don't know how else I could have handled it. Is there any alternative to find an SR22 that isn't over 200/months. That's just too steep for me to handle as I'm just a waiter. Thank you for any help!
Unless there are extenuating circumstances, an SR-22 must be continually maintained.
Shop around - rates can differ...
If I represent myself at arraignment, can can I speak with DA to drop first 3 offenses and plead guilty to DUI?
I was asleep on shoulder of interstate. Police stop and wake me up and smell alcohol. Police claim eyes dialated and bloodshot, and incoherent speech. I refused breathalyzer. Two reckless driving complaints.
Was cited for failure to notify address change...corrected;
Failure to produce insurance...have copy;
DUI .08 (AGG) 1st off
Can you? Yes. Should you? No. Even if you feel 100% responsible, at least give yourself the benefit of talking to...
Will my KY license be restricted if my MN licenses is as well?
While I lived in MN I got a DWI and plead guilty to a gross misdemeanor. During the court process I moved to Kentucky and got a valid license. Now I need to get an ignition interlock system in my car so my MN license is not revoked. My MN license will be restricted but does that mean my KY licenses will be as well?
The short answer is YES. MN will notify KY. So you will need to comply with KY restrictions that are in affect for a DWI.
I have a friend that moved to ky from nc. He has a suspended liscence for driving without a license and they reinstated a dui. Can anyone help him get a license here so he can work and take care of his family ?
Short answer, No. Kentucky will not issue a new license until his NC issues are cleared up and he's reinstated in NC....
