Does Virginia offer an alcohol-restricted license similar to the "J" license restriction in Maryland?
I need to get an alcohol restriction placed on a license in Virginia similar to the "J" restriction in Maryland. This is NOT a restriction on driving times/purposes, just a restriction that you can't have ANY alcohol in your system whenever driving. Is it possible to get such a restricted licnese in Virginia?

I need a certificate of completion from Virginia ASAP to get my license reinstated. This is my 2nd try, they want $400 extra.
I have to get a certificate of completion from Virginia ASAP to get my license reinstated in Virginia. This is my second attempt at completing the ASAP course and they are now trying to charge me an extra $400 dollars stating that I am a DMV referral. This extra charge does not include any costs associated with treatment. Is this legit? My licenses was suspended because of my DWI and the DMV suspended it because of the finding of me being guilty of the DWI in court so why should I have to pay into the program twice?
It seesm to me that even though that is a bunch of money, if the State is telling you that you aren't getting what you...
Recent DUI was dismissed completely. Now I have been told it can or needs to be expunged. How do I do that and is there a cost
DUI was thrown out because there was no proper arrest, never taken to magistrate
If it was dismissed, then you wouldn't need to get it expunged. Expungements are for people that were convicted.
Did this police officer blackmail me? And if so, what can I do?
Last night I was at a party with my friends. I had two beers, and my friends and I went outside on the street to smoke a cigarette. (My friends and I are 18). An officer approached us, asked what we were smoking, which was only cigarettes, and then asked if we were drinking. None of us were drunk, but the smell of beer was on our breaths. The officer questioned us, searched us, then used a breathalyzer. I had a 0.063. The officer pulled me aside and said that if I don't want to be charged I must help them find drug dealers at my school. The problem is, I honestly don't know any drug dealers, except a good friend, lets say his name is Bob. If I participate in the cop's sting operation I'm afraid that Bob or one of his friends will come after me. What can I do?
You have put yourself in a pickle and there's no easy way out. This should be a wonderful lesson to you as to what...

Background check for "arrested for, charged with, or convicted of any offense"
For govt. background checks, under the police record question for "arrested for, charged with, or convicted of any offense" in the past 7 years, should the charge/incident be listed if it occurred 8 years ago, eventhough the charge was subsequently reduced to negligent driving 1st degree 2 years later and within the 7 year window? What counts, the date of the incident/charge or the date when the charge got reduced?
What counts is how it is interpreted by the government employer. "Were you ...convicted of any offense ... in the past...
How can I be punished by the DMV for a DUI charge in two different states, after the state it occured in already reinstated me?
I was convicted of a DUI two years ago in my home state, I met the requirements of that state and had my license re-instated. I relocated to Virginia and went to get a DL, and after a week with a Virginia DL, received notice my privledges were suspended for another year + for the DUI I had recieved in my home state.
I would get a Virginia attorney to look into this for you. In Florida the administrative process has been able to...
