When I went to court, the officer asked that the DUI be thrown out, and the judge complied. There is a BAC conviction on my record still, although the DUI was dropped. The DMV appparently has tried and convicted me of blood alcohol.I can not find employment because of this. Is there any way to get the BAC off my record due to the fact that I wasnt allowed the due process of defense in a court system that America allows everyone else?

I was convicted in 2005 for DUI. I took the class, payed all fines, had my license suspended for 2 years, now the DMV is punishing me again. I received a notice for suspension in the mail. I was told to hand over my drivers license and they claim they have nothing in their system stating that my license was suspended for 2 years. I have been driving all these years with no problems, now I have no license. I don't know what to do except file for a hearing, but the results may be biased, causing me more money and still no license for 6 months.
Hello there, You need to hire an attorney that specializes in administrative license suspension hearings and contest...

went to court paid fine, took required classes, took out SR22 and received a license that states expires in 10 years. Last week I received a letter from DMV stating my license were suspended. I have talk to several state workers and no one seems to know why or give me an decent answer why.
