I had a DUI in NH, which i live in VT, and it was 3 yrs ago. I didn't handle my case properly and got convicted. My BF is disabled and needs me to bring him to his doctors appt and other things he needs as well. I have a different lifestyle than 3 yrs ago I don't get in trouble (arrested, ticketed etc.) I don't drink anymore. I don't think that i would get anything out of the programs, I don't live my life like that and well aware of the problems it might cause for whoever is involved. Not only for DWI fees but also the fact of what alcohol does to the body and mind. I was wondering if there was a faster way to get my license back?
First and foremost, talk to your attorney from your New Hampshire DUI. I assume your license is in Vermont. There is...
Today I had my exit interview for project crash in springfield vt. At the conclusion of the interview, the person interviewing me told me that the state of vermont requires me to get an interlock device installed on my vehicle and that I would have to have it for life. I am trying to discern whether or not this is true. The program I did for crash was the total abstinence program, and all my paperwork was in order. In vermont the paperwork is then forwarded to the vermont DMV who conducts an investigation to decide whether or not I get my licence back. So far my research has told me that the IID is optional and I can wait until DMV makes their decision. However, my interviewer told me that to get my licence back, I would have to get and keep the IID for life.

Vehicle ran out of gas. Hazard lights on, keys in pocket. 1 hr passed making calls for assistance. I was arrested for a DUI.
While on the side of the road I had started to drink. An hour had passed when an Officer pulled up to assist me. He smelled alcohol on my breath, he said he would take me to get a can of gas. Officer told me before he was to take me to get the gas he asked if I would take a breathalyzer test. I reluctantly took the test and failed. I had told the officer I had been drinking during the hr I was on the side of the road making calls. I was arrested for a DUI I was not driving and vehicle was not running and safely parked on the side of the freeway. Is there a defence?
Yes there is no observation of operation - no probable cause - no observation if intoxication. This case screams "take...
Can a person get their license reinstated in Vermont if they have a permanently revoked lic. in FL for 4 duis?
I know someone who has a permanently revoked license in Florida due to 4 DUI's. 2 out of state, and 2 in Florida. The last DUI was in May 2011 and he received his revocation in July 2011. This person has since moved to Vermont. He seems to think he can waltz down here to Florida and get an administrative hearing and get his license back just like that and be able to drive freely in Vermont. How realistic is this? I fear this person driving because he is a very active alcoholic. Will it be easy to get his license back after 4 DUI's? The last one he had a UBAL of .23. If he were to get a hardship/employment license reinstated. , would he be able to drive in Vermont? Florida law says he cannot even get an administrative hearing until 5 years after the last dui conviction.
Permanent revocation means just what it sounds like. That suspension should make him unable to obtain a license in any...
Hired lawyer he told me to travel back to tn and he would try to resolve so I would not have to return to vT
Any administrative license actions or convictions will be reported to your home state.
If a person knowingly gets auto insurance in their name, allowing a 4 time DUI driver w/ revoked license drive car, is it fraud?
I know of someone (and have written proof via internet messages) that a woman in Colchester, VT, knowingly financed a vehicle in her name and got insurance for the sole purpose of allowing a 4 time convicted DUI offender and documented alcoholic drive the vehicle full time. She lists her address as the home of the vehicle,yet, this drunk driver is the one solely in possession of said jeep. I found out they were insured by Geico and alerted their fraud dept. They investigated and dropped this woman from insurance for fraud. After that, she went to Progressive and obtained insurance. They are currently investigating the case. I have also let VT state police know and they are watching him. I have been giving tips for the past 6 months to cops and NICB. How serious of an offense is this
I cannot tell you the specifics above about Vermont law. I am a Maine attorney and I know in Maine this would be a...
It is my first offence of any kind.
Any attorney answering this question would need much more information given. That said, consider calling a local dui...
