Ventura County DUI court case dismissed, do I have to complete DUI program?
My DMV ADMINISTRATIVE PER SE - .O8% BAC NOTIFICATION OF FINDINGS AND DECISION and AMENDED ORDER OF RESTRICTION both clearly state that if convicted, I will be required to complete a DUI program. That indicates that as I was not convicted, (case was dismissed pursuant to PC 1385 ; re Can not prove beyond a reasonable doubt on the motion of People) I will not be required to complete the DUI program. That is my goal. But, stated on the back of the APS is "If I enroll and fail to participate, the department will suspend your driving privilege for up to four months”. If that's the case, can I get a restricted license for the term of that suspension, and not have to complete the DUI program? Will I require DMV form DS-702 and will I be forced to compel the DA/prosecutor to fill it out,?
First of all, congratulations on getting your case dismissed. As far as getting a restricted driver's license you...

I got a 23136(a) if it gets dismissed, does the DMV still suspend my license for a year?
I got stopped because I was driving while I was talking on the phone. I went to court and pled guilty to the 23136 and he dismissed the telephone violation. The judge gave me the option of going to a 12 week alcohol program and if I complete the program he will dismiss the alcohol infraction. I went to the DMV the day after court and they said that my license is suspended for a year anyway. I have to go back to court in 3 months with my certificate of completion for the alcohol program. If it gets dismissed it doesn't make sense to me that they will still suspend my license.
The DMV may get notice of the DUI from the police and the DMV takes action independent of the court. To get your...
I finished all of my DUI classes and just finished paying off my fees, do I have to do anything else now?
I finished all courses last year and finished paying my court fees earlier this month, I'm not sure if I need to go to court to let a judge know I'm done or if I need to do anything else
Ask your lawyer, he/she knows what you were ordered to complete as part of your sentence.
I just got a letter from the Dmv stating my license is suspended for my 2nd dui for 1 year.
The letter says nothing about being able to get a restricted in 90 days with a interlock device and with enrollment in 18 month program. Does that mean I will not be able to get the restricted, The letter does not say a hard 1 year suspension. Or do I just go to the dmv when the 90 days is up and show prof of interlock, dui school and sr 22 and then can get my restricted?
As long as you otherwise qualify, you can get a license 90 days after the court conviction by filing an SR22, enrolling...
