I was arrested about 5 yrs ago for traffic violations and my license was revoked. I now need to get my VA license for work and VA says MD has me flagged and won't allow me. 2 issues 1) I was hit with unmanageable fines (about 7000)that are still unpaid and the officer did not return my license to the DMV.
