If I have a Georgia license but received a withheld judgement on a DUI in Idaho, where can I drive?
I have a Georgia driver's license. Received a withheld judgement on a DUI in Idaho, currently living there. Was told my license was suspended for 90 days (both in court and DOT) in Idaho. But checked the status of my Georgia license and was told it is valid. How do I reinstate a license if it's not suspended... what's going on?
ID suspended your ID driving privileges. ID will have reinstatement requirements that you must complete to get your ID...
Will my possession of marijuana be dropped if it was found due to an erroneous arrest/tow?
I was pulled over for speeding (67 in a 55). Upon running my license it came up as suspended, and with a requirement of a ignition interlock system. For this reason I was arrested, and my car towed. Upon towing my car the police officer "inventoried" my vehicle and found marijuana. However, my license should have never been suspended. I took care of my DUI charges over a year ago, and Arizona (where my DUI was) already explained it was a computer error that caused my license to be suspended. Because of this I wonder if my marijuana charge could get dropped, as I shouldn't have been in a position where he could search me. A lawyer I contacted is wanting to charge my $1500 because of all the charges, but that doesn't seem proper, as the DUI charges were false and easy to prove.
Unfortunately, the police will be allowed to rely on the information that is reported on their computer. Therfore,...

Dual Penalties for Out-of-State DUI?
I was charged with a DUI in Illinois in October, 2016. I lived in Illinois for a short period of time in 2016-2017. I was convicted, I lost my license for a period, paid my reinstatement fee, and did everything else I was supposed to do in Illinois for my conviction. However, when I was charged, I had an Idaho driver's license. Now, nearly a year later, my license is being revoked by the state of Idaho for a period of 365 days. I again have to pay reinstatement fees, suffer the consequences of being without a license for a year, and go through the process again. Is this customary for out-of-state DUIs? Is there anything I can do to demonstrate that I've already lost my driving privileges for a year? Any advice, even advice that does not answer these specific questions, is much appreciated.
Yes, this is customary. Most of the states are members of the Driver License Compact, which is an interstate compact...
How do I avoid the ignitions lock required by Washington state when you get a DUI in another State?
Last year I got a DUI in Idaho with a Washington state Licence. Have not lived in Washington for the past two years. The Idaho judge did not require an ignitions lock, just classes, volunteer work and fees to be paid. I was never notified that i needed a ignitions lock from Washington. I tried to get my Idaho licence today, and they told me I could not till my suspension was lifted from Washington. I reinstated my licence in Idaho ($500 to do so) two weeks ago and have been driving since, thinking i was legal to drive.
Idaho Code 49-303(5) says Idaho cannot give you a license with an outstanding suspension in WA, unless five years has...
