I am 17 years old and two days ago i wrecked my car and was charged with a dui.
i am a great kid, i promise, this has never happened to me before and never will again. I'm extremely scared. i'm going to be a senior in highschool, i work and i play a fall sport and spring. My senior year is greatly important to me and i have no transportation to work or school because i am on work based learning which allows me to come in late to school and leave early. I'm sincerely hoping to get through this without my license being suspended but i know it will be. Do I have any chance of getting a limited license for school and work, i am a hostess and my school and work are five minutes away from my house. Please respond.

My judge did not order drug testing, why is my probation officer testing me?
The last visit I had was extremely stressful. They told me I had a random that day. I couldnt go and they told me if I cant go, theyd mark me as if I tested positive for something. My probation officer has the order from the judge and drug testing is clearly marked out. I am also too worried to bring it up to her because I dont want her to think I am doing anything.
If you are on probation for a DUI, they can certainly test you for alcohol in your system. You selected the practice...
How do I get a public defender and what are the guidelines as far as income?

How can I get a Passport and driver's license suspension, for child support, lifted so to work and pay the arrears?
I am a 50-year-old, Caucasian, male that retired from the Navy in 2005. I was fired from a job in the Oil field around 2009 then divorced. I requested the $1,300 per child to be lowered - was denied. I became an alcoholic looking for oilfield work overseas with no success. This past Christmas I found myself in the hospital and realized that I needed help. I turned myself into Perry Point VA medical facility for "Detox", attended "Substance Abuse Treatment Program", was diagnosed with PTSD. I was discharged on June 20th and was accepted in a housing program for homeless veterans on station near therapy needed to further manage PTSD and Addiction. I have contacted the office in Erie, PA and was told I can write a letter to them requesting a lift on the suspensions but that it is “Highly unlikely”. I could make the type of money needed to pay this debt within years instead of decades – all pending the ability to travel, drive, and stay sober. I will have 6 months of Sobriety next month, a prerequisite for one employer. Please help me get back on track, right wrongs, and do good for others in turn helping me stay sober. Sincerely, Humble retired frog

MVA should be able to tell you why you're suspended. If it's unpaid tickets, then you need MVA to give you a list, so...
Does not guilty in district court have any affect on MVA hearing?
When to court for drinking and driving with under 21 restricted license- found not guilty. just received notice of suspension from DMV for same charge-
DMV can have different rules from the court, but this sounds like you need to contact a local experienced DUI attorney...
I refused the Portable Breathalyzer Test during a DUI/DWI arrest. Will this hurt my case?
I was recently involved in a minor accident (no vehicle damage). A deputy sheriff arrived at the scene and attempted to administer a PBT. I refused and was arrested, then released after being processed. I was NOT asked to submit to a blood test.
There is no penalty for refusing the PBT, in fact I advise people to refuse the Field Sobriety Tests as well as the PBT....
