My temporary driver's license I received after DUI charge expires on April 6th, but my court date is this week. I understand that after a DUI conviction in court, they will contact the DMV and the suspension will start. My question is, can I drive to/from the court appearance with the temporary license? How long after the court conviction will the suspension start?
You can drive to and from court this week on the temporary license. If you are convicted of DUI, which is...
Hello dear AVVO lawyers. I have been fortunate or unfortunate enough to get a second DUI for a drug related issue (Non alcoholic). The Court ruled for a 3 month DUI Class program. however when i called DMV they told me that i need to do an 18 month DUI class program, and also install a "breath alcohol ignition interlock device" into my car. even though i got the DUI for a non alcoholic related issue. Why is there a discrepancy between what the DMV tries to impose on me and the court ruling? how do I go about doing only what the ruled, and not what the DMV is trying to impose on me out of the blue? I have checked my court documentation, and it specifically states that other than the fine i only need to do a 3 month program to get my license and life back. I appreciate all and any advise
The DMV controls the issuance of a license after a DUI. It is hard to believe that the court would order only a 3 month...
Approved for out of county transfer. Didn't finish the hours in time and a modification was submitted and approved, for 40 HOURS. My attorney re-submitted another Modification to the court for correction. I've been waiting 2 months just to get 18 days signed up with the Work Alternative. They want the corrected modification. QUESTION: I need to leave to WA state. Is it possible to transfer hours up there? I feel like I am going to wait an eternity for an answer from the court.
The only way you can get this community service transferred to WA is to get matter put on calendar and request this...
I took it to trial and won all charges dismissed, I went to DMV to get my lic reinstated and they refused. They said they dont have to reinstate them . Is this true?

How can i get my lic back or is it suspended for the year? Even though i beat the case? Ty
Just to be clear, took it to jury trial and found "not guilty", or "hung jury"? Or, did you plead to a "lesser"...
I've had friends mention character letters and neuro-psychiatric evaluations. Can anyone elaborate on these two and offer any other helpful measures for getting the sentence lowered? I've been in rehab and I do have cognitive/psychological conditions (that can be argued to have influenced the car accident in context). How do I go about requesting a neuro-psych evaluation?
The first question I have is: What are the "enhancements?" High BAC? Child in the car? Accident causing injury?...
I was involved in a DUI car accident I struck another vehicle in which I was at fault and totaled our rental luckily no one was hurt. will Allstate cover our rental damage and the other car damage or will they deny our claim?
If your rental car was a replacement vehicle then your auto insurance should cover the damages regardless of the DUI.
I am a medical student. On my application for a residency position, I was asked "have you ever been convicted of a misdemeanor." I answered "no," following the advice of two attorneys. I have since been offered a residency position and will be undergoing FBI, OIG, DMV, DOJ background checks for this hospital. This hospital is affiliated with a Veteran's Affairs hospital, which is run by the federal government. Should I disclose this information prior to consenting to the background check process? My understanding is that I only have to disclose this information when running for public office, obtaining state licensure, or contracting with the state lottery. My concern is that this information may arise, in some form or another, on one of these background checks, and questions will arise.
You should consult with an attorney who does administrative jaw before licensing boards. I will flag the topic change v
