How long does the state of wa hold a license under the need to complete drug and alcohol treatment after a dui?
I committed a dui 6 years ago, to my probation officer and I, I had completed treatment but the proper papers were not filed by the association who ran the drug and alcohol treatment. nearly 6 years later it still has a hold on my license and the association says I must complete treatment again.
You have to file the paperwork showing that you completed or are doing your alcohol/ drug treatment. So even if you...

What do I need in order to fly to Canada on business without risk of being turned away if I have a Reckless Driving on my record
In 2011 I was arrested on DUI charges (lane travel) and in 2012 pleaded guilty to Reckless Driving in Washington State, which is a gross misdemeanor. My lawyer won my civil case and I never had to have a 'blow-and-go', although my driver's license was suspended for 30 days after pleading guilty to the Reckless. Upon recommendation from my lawyer I purchased the WSP WATCH report to get full detail of the arrest and charge. Neither item makes mention of a DUI. The 'convictions' lists Gross Misdemeanor - Reckless Driving and the Arrest lists nothing under 'Arrest Offenses' and 'Reckless Driving' under Disposition. 'Sentence' lists: Jail: 364D, Jail Sus.: 363D, Supervision 1Y (bench probation), Fine: $741. This is the only thing in my history. So I read that a reckless driving charge in the United States is most equivalent to the charge of "dangerous operation of a motor vehicle" in Canada, and you can be denied entry to Canada if this is on your record. The article made mention of a "Wet Reckless" and a "Dry Reckless", but I'm not sure if this applies to my charge as no DUI 'rider' is on my report. Please help me determine what I need to do to travel to CA on business.

I am in a deferred prosecution with Washington state and have a question about the interlock requirement.
I have called the dol twice and heard the same answer but I would like to hear it from an attorney as well. I hAve an interlock scheduled to come off on the 14th of next month and the dol told me I do not need to first provide 4 months worth of compliance to the device due to the deferred. Is this accurate? Not that I couldn't provide the compliance but I want to know if I should expect to wait on paperwork before I have the interlock removed or if I can just go in and have it taken out.
Do not need to first provide 4 months compliance or You must first provide four months?

I am considering entering a Deferred Prosecution in WA for a second offense DUI. Will DOL action on my license be overturned?
I am considering entering a deferred prosecution for a second offense DUI. Originally I did not think the circumstances around my arrest were justified so I intended to fight it (plus, it is my legal right to do so) I think I could go through with the program. The DOL handed down a 2 year revocation of my license and I was wondering if that revocation would be overturned by the court for entering a deferred prosecution.
Unfortunately, the DOL and judge are not connected in a way to lower the revocation. You must file a notice of a...
