What are the consequences for driving on a suspended license without current tags while on formal probation in CA
I was in a single car colission while on formal probation. I had recently been evicted from my home and had to move my car that was not being driven but also did not have current tags. It then was brought to my attention that i had a suspended license for some accident that i was NEVER in nor aware of. I am trying to find out the details of the suspension and how to clear it but the registration cannot be paid. When i was evicted i not only lost my home but my home business as well.

Good afternoon, Raizie: If I may ask, what are you on formal probation for?
Can CPS take my newborn if I have a negative history with them?
Hours ago I had a new baby, CPS is trying to take her because my first prenatal UA tested positive for a controlled substance . Every subsequent test, as well as any test now has been and is clean. I do have a negative history with Cps.
You need to be worried. And does your baby. Maybe it's best that you voluntarily give up the baby in order to...
Likely outcome of dui with child endangerment?
I was arrested for dui and I assume with child endangerment since my daughter was with me. I was wondering what tends to happen in cases like mine. No one was hit and I was not speeding. The officer actually never specified why he stopped me but I think I must have swerved. I failed the roadside breathalyzer and probably the roadside test because my daughter was crying so I wasn't focused on them and asked to stop and go get her out. I was not breath or blood tested at the station and was released 3 hours later. I did not receive any citation paperwork nor was I told my bac. I have been calling the courthouse daily to figure out exact charges and my arraignment date. All I know is that the jail booking record says misdemeanor dui. I have no priors of any kind.
Get a lawyer right away and make sure you contact the DMV to secure an administrative hearing. It must be done within...

MY 17 YR OLD PLEAD GUILTY TO 23136(A)VC. DMV SUSPD LIC FOR 1 YR. JUVENILE PROBATION SUSPENDED IT FOR 2 MORE MOS.IS THAT LEGAL?
DOES JUVENILE PROBATION HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO SUSPEND A DRIVERS LICENSE FOR 1 YEAR FROM CONVICTION OF A 23136(A)VC? DMV SUSPENDED IT FOR 1 YEAR -BEGINNING 30 DAYS AFTER VIOLATION(ADMIN PER SE). ZERO TOLERANCE. I UNDERSTAND THIS. BUT DURING THE HEARING WITH THE JUVENILE PROBATION OFFICER I WAS TOLD PROBATION WAS NOT SUSPENDING THE LICENSE. ONLY DMV WAS AND THAT SHE UNDERSTANDS THE SUSPENSION BEGINS FROM THE CONVICTION DATE BY DMV. A PRINTOUT OF THE DRIVING RECORD SHOWS "COURT SUSPENSION" FOR ONE YR FROM CONVICTION DATE. THE DMV SUSPENSION SHOWS 1 YEAR SUSPENSION BEGINNING 30 DAYS AFTER VIOLATION DATE. WHICH SHOULD BE CORRECT. DOES JUVENILE PROBATION HAVE AUTHORITY TO SUSPEND LICENSE FOR THAT LONG? IF SO WHAT AUTHORITY CODE ARE THEY ENFORCING?
In a nutshell, DMV has dual suspension authority. After an arrest for for 23136, 23140, 23152, or 23153, DMV can...
