I took an egt test earlier today and failed for alcohol, is there any way to request a retest?
I'm on pre trial diversion and I work as a bartender. I worked late the previous night and was testing the drinks all night through a sipper straw as I was training a new bartender. I didn't actually have a drink, however my boss told me to do this and I wasn't expecting it to show up in my test, as it was such a small amount. Being as this was part of my job, would they let me retest if I explained this? Or am I just going to fail out of the program.

Can I take a Florida mandated DUI class in a different state to get my license back?
I was arrested for DUI in 2009 and did not lose my drivers license. The judge continued my case long enough for me to complete a 2 part DUI class and community service. The DUI class was two parts, first part being like six two hour classes spaced out over 2 months, the second part is a 'alcohol & drug counseling evaluation' were they decide if your an addict. I did my community service, took the class, and the counselors were understaffed and backed up, so I made the appt for 8 months later. I returned to court before that appt and the judge decided to give me a drug test, which I passed and he said ok that's good enough case closed. Well, i didnt attend that counseling appt, and the DMV suspended my license 2 years later. I now live out of state, Do i have to return to FL to take class
Check with the Florida DMV. I expect they will have a way for you to complete the requirement, but it may be expensive.
