How do a Michigan license after a dui in MI with a FL license?
I got a dui in Oakland county with a BAL of .11 I moved to Michigan for work. I never got a mighigan drivers license. From what my probation officer and the secretary of state in MI say is that my suspension is over after today April 7th. The issue is that florida laws dictate that my license is revoked for 180 days to a year. I checked the FL dmv site and it is indeed revoked. So I assume that there is a hold on my license and will be unable to get my MI license. My career is at stake because I soon will not be able to afford paying for a taxi to and from work. I am ok with getting my MI license, I just need some advice on how to get it cleared in FL. Thank you!

Second DUI in Michigan
If you are convicted of 2 DUI's with-in 7 years in Michigan then your license is revoked for a year and you have to go in front of a board to appeal and get a restricted license. So here is my question, my first DUI conviction date was "9/11/2008", and I was just arrested for a second DUI on "8/23/2014" but I have not been convicted yet. If a lawyer was to delay the trial until after "9/11/2015" would this technically mean I fall out of the 7 year timeframe?
No lawyer could delay a trial in district court for a year. You are looking at a mandatory revocation for at least a...
I have a restricted license in Michigan. Can I get an unrestricted license in Colorado?
I have been off probation since Jan 2014 and have had a breathalyzer in my car since May 2013. I am currently going through the process of getting a hearing with Secretary of State, but they keep messing me around. I want to move to Colorado, but keep getting set back by this.
