R there ever any exceptions by the secr of state when a driver is convicted of a 1st dui to not suspend the license for 30 days?
I have a company issued car and have a 30 day suspension before having a restricted license . If my company thinks that it is even a possibility that my license isn't suspended, I may not lose my job. I can take vacation etc, and with holidays and work travel, I won't need to drive, however, just the fact that the state requires a suspension, does not look good and increases my chance of getting fired. is there EVER any exeptions, even though I know that I would not qualify. The restricted license is probably not a problem.
There is very limited exceptions for medical reasons however based upon the facts you stated it is unlikely..
I was in a car accident and arrested for suspected dui, waiting on blood test should I get a lawyer?

Did not receive medical or offered it was taken to jail ended up with concussion and dislocated right shoulder(don't know if the shoulder was from accident or cop handcuffing me and pulling it out). I am on some prescription medication and don't know what will happen.

I was conviced of OWI 1st but I blew a .22. I was lucky enough to not get convicted of OWI High BAC. Does the secretary of state penalize me by my BAC level or conviction? I.E. Do they see me as a super drunk offender or just the regular OWI?
No, the Secretary of State goes by your conviction. That's the benefit of plea bargains and negotiations.
I was driving several hours after drinking but was lost because I was out of state. I fell asleep at the wheel and totaled my car. No other people or cars were involved.

My smart start malfunctioned and the company disconnected it. This caused my license to be suspended.
I had a DUI in Oct 2010 and another in Jan 2011 and went through a sobriety program which I finished in record time and have remained 100% sober since. I have not had one drop of alcohol in almost 3 years. One of the requirements of the program was to have an interlock device on my car. Well I was driving about a year ago and the device failed with an error message so I called the company. They told me to drive to their location, they said they had to disconnect and reconnect it and it would be fine they would just document it. However, as a result of this the Secretary of State suspended my license as a result. They believe I disconnected the Smart Start even though I have record from Smart Start that they disconnected it. My license is now suspended for another 2 years.
First I recommend that you hire an attorney. Second if you wish to handle this matter without an attorney make sure you...
