How do I get a 10 panel substance abuse assessment?
I got a DUI in Michigan in 1998. Iwas subsequently incarcerated in NC from 1999 - 2009. I went to apply for my license recently and found that Michigan has a hold on them. I went to Michigan in 2015, paid fines and whatnot, only to return home and find out that they now require a 10 panel assessment.

Fl license w/ DUI in NC
I moved to NC and got a DUI the 1st month I lived here. My lawyer advised me to not switch my FL license over to NC. 4 months later, I got a 2nd DUI (the conviction rate is nearly 90% here). I was charged with both 1 day apart from each other. I have finished everything required by the state. My license was suspended for a year (the year will be up at the end of April). However, whenever I check the FL DMV site on the status of my license it always says "valid". My understanding of the situation is that my driving privileges have been temporarily revoked in NC but bc I don't have an NC license they couldn't suspend it. Details: 1st offense bac 0.11 (breath) 2nd offense bac 0.16 (breath) My question: Will I be able to drive again after the "suspension" period has ended without meeting other criteria given the fact that my license hasn't *actually* been suspended?
If NC suspended your right to drive within the state of NC, you can't drive in NC until you meet their requirements.

I was convicted of a Misdemeanor Drunk in Public back in CA in 96/97 and it appears to be gone. Can that happen?
I was convicted of a Misdemeanor Drunk in Public back in CA in 96/97 and I called Riverside County where I was convicted in to get case numbers, etc. so I could work on expungement. They said they didn't have a record on file and gave me a number to the state. I called the State and they said the same thing, they can't find a file or a conviction. Can a Misdemeanor just disappear? That doesn't seem quite right. After that, I ran a background check on myself, and sure enough it didn't pop up.
It is possible they failed to transfer your file from the old system to the new one. It's rare... but it happens....
I have an interlock in a car that is no longer running. What steps do I need to take in order to get a different car in NC?
The interlock device is being removed from the broke-down car today. If I purchase a new car, how do I get it to the interlock installation location?
Interesting question. I would suggest you stop by your local Dept of Motor Vehicles and ask them that question. You...
