What do you do if ordered an IID x 16 months and you have not owned a vehicle to install it in and now its been 5 years?
Aggravated DUI with bodily injury and high BAC 1st offense in 2012 (WV). Did not own a car then but was ordered an IID x 16 months. That was almost 5 yrs. ago and still don't have a car, so have never been able to install the IID, can license ever get reinstated? All fines are paid, dui classes are completed, did required jail time.

Will I be able to get a restricted licence in WV for a second offence DUI received in PA?
I was on pain management for a close to a year and decided to get off of them. I bought a dose of buprenorphine off the the street to wean off it. I was in the final stages of this when I got pulled over and I was taken in for a blood draw and charged with a third tier DUI because I had a measurable amount in my blood. I hired an incompetent lawyer who thought I would get ARD and really did nothing to negotiate my plea agreement or show that the officer didn't have a good reason to preform this blood draw. This is my second DUI, previous one was in 2008. I was offered house arrest and a 18 month driver's licence suspension. My question is if I have a west virginia licence can I apply for a restricted licence to drive to work and/or school or what not?
Best to hire a competent lawyer our guesses won't help and will be worse than the incompetent lawyers advice. Perhaps...

How do drug screenings work for dui classes?
I got a first offense dui in Fayette county, wv. Of course I'm required to go through the DUI classes. I am afraid I may test positive for THC should they screen me the first time. Is the first screen a "gimme" and then I must pass the rest? Are the tests at FMRS supervised? What if I have a prescription for medical?
The requirements will vary from court to court and depends on the jurisdiction. Typically, if you test positive on...
How soon after an accident does a urine test have to be adminstered in order to be valid for DUI?
I was recently involved in an accident where I was at fault and was transported to the hospital for injuries before the cops arrived. The nurse said that the cop said if I did not urinate that they would catheter me. Well they never catheter me and it took me 4 or 5 hours to pee. I had Xanax in my urine from a few days before. So my two questions are can I beat it if they charge me since they cannot prove I was under the influence while driving, and how long after the accident do they have to administer the urine test? Surely there's a limit for it to be admissable.
The investigating officer can and most likely will get a subpoena for your medical records. You were not under arrest...
