Told by Orange County court that I was never convicted of DUI three years ago. How does this impact ability to get license back?
I’m a Florida resident, working for a CA company, and spend a good portion of time in both states. In July 2010, I was arrested for DUI in Orange Co, CA, by OC Sheriffs. I blew 0.13 They confiscated my FL D/L and impounded my rental car, etc. After the DA took a couple of months to file on me, I eventually appeared in court and was found eligible for CA’s “first offender” program. For various reasons, I did not sign up for the program. I was subsequently picked up on a warrant for said failure to sign up, plus a felony drug possession charge. I plead guilty on the possession charge, did some county time (to include time for FTA on the DUI case plus dismissal of court costs on same), completed PC1210 program and had my three years of formal probation discharged after one year. Fast forward to 2014. After basically getting by via public transportation and bicycle for the past three years (I was never in CA long enough to complete the three month DUI program) I get laid off, stuck in CA, with now time enough to sign up for and complete the program, hoping to return to FL for work. A treatment provider in LA Co near where I reside suggested that I ask the court to be on an accelerated program which can be completed in six weeks instead of twelve, if the court would approve. But a trip to Orange Co court where my cases were adjudicated yielded a surprise: I was never convicted of the DUI in Orange County! Apparently the case was dropped completely in favor of the harsher drug possession charge (tho I thought I had convictions for both.) Is this just a distinction without a difference? The CA DMV says they will not issue me a driver’s license without completing the first offender program. Florida renewed my license (listed as valid, w/o restrictions on their website ‘til 2021), but will not send me the physical license until I’ve completed the program. Should I just complete the CA program to get my CA license, then return to FL? Does the not being convicted of the DUI have any bearing whatsoever on either DMV? Can I disclose to future employers that I’ve not had any DUI convictions based on the court’s failure to convict even tho I must complete the class for DMV? I have not yet filed the requisite SR22; any possibility I won’t need to without the court conviction? Will legal representation do me any good at this point with either state’s DMV? Sorry for the length of the post. Thanks in advance for your time.

Is the standard procedure for a dui involving alcohol the same as the procedure for a dui involving drugs?
Officer didn't have me perform any field sobriety tests or take a breathalyzer. He just had me taken to hospital to get blood drawn. His only reason for giving me a dui ticket and having my blood drawn was because he supposedly smelt alcohol on my breath. Blood results ended up showing there was no alcohol in my system at all, but meth was detected. Can't the blood results be considered inadmissible since his probable cause for having my blood drawn only had to do with alcohol and nothing to do with drugs? None of the police reports mention having any suspicion of drug use at all. Riverside County.
There might be grounds to file a motion to suppress based upon lack of probable cause to arrest. But a full analysis...
Can I start my DUI program classes before I have my court date? Additional questions in *details part*
If I am supposed to be working abroad and I don't have my court date until late February is there a way to start taking my DUI programs asap? is there a way to postpone the classes? and is there a way to push my court date up? I am supposed to be working abroad early next year and unfortunately this may cause a hinder :(. Any feedback will help. The main thing is I understand that the classes are at least 3 months for me being a first time offender. I am trying to do ANYTHING I can... I do understand the holidays are right now and it's quite busy, but again, any professional feedback would be so appreciated.

Completed DUI school/MADD/community service before "stayed" date but submitting proof to court after? Is this a hard deadline?
First offense DUI reduced to wet reckless. Completed DUI school/MADD/community service before "stayed" date on probation order. Haven't submitted proof to court and just realized stayed date was yesterday (thought it was next week...). Was planning to go to court on Friday. Did I violate anything and will I face any issues going to court submitting my documents? Do I have anything to worry about?
Depends on what the court meant by "stay date." If you've done everything but get the proof to the court I would hope...
