When are you able to get a restricted license ?
My lawyer told me at court that I got charged with refusel of breath test, and dui 1st. He said I can't drive for 2 years, in a year I can do vasap.

Will I be violated before being convicted of a DUI charge I got while on probation through vasap?
I was placed on probation through vasap in Christiansburg September 2016. The case got taken under advisement and after a year and completeing 100hours of community service and paying my fines my record would stay dry. I think it is called a first offender program. I got a DUI at the end of October and was in jail for 5 days before my grandfather would bond me out. I had an intake appointment November 2nd but I was in jail. Vasap rescheduled the appointment for Dec. 9th automatically without me contacting them. I go to court for the DUI on January 23rd, 2017. I called the vasap office and told a case manager that I got the DUI and she said I could be violated before I was convicted but everyone else I've spoke with said the oppisite. She also wasn't the case manager that would be handing the violation. I'm wondering if it's possible that they violate me before I get convicted of the DUI? Is there a chance that I get violated and a warrant for my arrest goes out and I go to jail until however long?
"Violated" means many things. For many, when a probation tells the court that you may have screwed up your...
