I have a Felony DUI in the state of Alaska! Can I claim residency in Washington State to get a drivers license?
Alaska States DUI laws state that if you have three DUI within ten years it is considered a Felony DUI. But In Washington State it states not until your fourth DUI it is then considered a felony DUI.
