How to reinstate a license after 3rd dui in florida?
Hello. I have three duis from the state of Florida. I am halfway through my 10 year revocation as I got convicted in August 2012. What is the process of getting a license reinstated when the time comes? Do I still have to get FR-44 insurance and the IID? I would assume you would only need these for a hardship license. I'm not sure how the requirements for that would work either. Just a quick explanation would be great. Thanks

2nd dui within two years after first one was reduced to reckless driving?
This JUST happened to me. I had my first dui reduced to reckless driving and two years later I got a second dui. Im just now going through it. What should I expect? Will they treat it like my first because the first one was reduced?
Because you were not convicted of DUI, they must treat this DUI as if it was your first, thus no mandatory jail time or...
If you receive a DUI in Florida in November of 2011 and never received another when can it be dropped off of your record?
Stopped for speeding and arrested for DUI. Took classes, paid fines, did community service, and all other requirements were completed. How long will it stay on my driving record? It has been 6 years and is keeping me from being able to get insurance on my own instead of on my parents policy.

Will DCF consider a dilute drug test a positive?
I am currently under monitoring by DCF. I take several random urine tests. They are always negative because I no longer do drugs...I’ve completely changed my life for the better. I workout a lot and drink a lot of water and vitamin shakes. Usually they let me know I have a test first thing in the morning so I know to avoid drinking too many fluids. However, this last test was sprung on me mid-day and I had already drank coffee, 2 amazing grass green superfood drinks, and a ton of a water from my big water jug while doing cardio. I’m terrified this test will come up diluted. What will they do to me? Can I just go take another test? I’m so scared. I’ve done everything right and to think it could all go wrong over something as stupid as this is heartbreaking.
A diluted drug test is not the same as a positive. At worst, you are probably looking at a retest.
Whats it mean when dmv sayd theres something in another state but still allowd me to take the test?
Fines in nj from years back but when applying in fl for dl they said something in nj needs to be taken care of but still let me take written advised me to do online Drug n alcohol test and schedule the drivers test.. Will they normally allow one to go through the application process if you dl is flagged from another state?

How can I revoke the release of information from DUI evaluation? How do I go about getting new evaluation? 2nd opinion...
I have a DUI evaluation coming up for a second DUI offense. I have been to this provider/evaluator before and am worried about a bias. I have attended a residential rehab program (30 days) and am currently seeing a substance abuse specialist for on going therapy/counseling. I am worried this evaluator will recommend extreme extended treatment. I don't know how to go about seeking a second opinion and revoking the release of information from the first evaluation. I don't want this evaluation to mandate that I attend years of treatment when I've spent thousands and exhausted my resources trying to treat my alcoholism/addiction. Situation: I was arrested for DUI and upon search of my vehicle a pipe and pot was found. I was arrested 9 months prior for DUI and completed everything that was required. (16 hours of substance abuse treatment). Upon the second arrest I checked into res. rehab and once completed started out patient treatment (32 hours+) Also, I attend AA regularly and keep a signed log. I have gone through court and been sentenced. DUI school/Eval is part of probation requirements. How can I show the progress I've made so I am not determined to be 'high risk'?
Best I can suggest is asking if your PO will accept an evaluation from the residential facility you were in and...
