Virginia DUI When considering prior offenses, do they use the offense date or the conviction date in the prior 10 year period?
In Virginia, the court looks at the date the offenses were committed, independent of the date of conviction.
I was charged a ticket for having an open container. However I was not drinking and driving. The violation was listed as 5-1-25. The officer did not tell me the price of the fine. What can I expect to have to pay and will it have an affect on my license if I was not DWI?
Your ticket will have information directing you to a court where your case will be handled.There could also be a...
I failed an interlock test once during my 6 month restricted license and interlock period. I did not retest until that evening because I had to get to work with a neighbor. I realize I should have retested and would have probably passed very quickly. I have a camera installed too. I have no other violations and in 2 weeks was set to regain my full license. I notified my PO right away and even took a day off work to speak with him personally before the Interlock service was downloaded. I thought because I was at the end of my probation period my probation and if I was honest, my counselor would give me a break but he went really hard on me and I shouldn't have admitted to drinking the night before for my Birthday. I have not drank any alcohol this year except on my Birthday. Any Advice?

Was arrested for suspicion of DUI. At the station I agreed to take the Breathalyzer and complied with the officers instructions. I took the test four times, each time with the result of a deficient sample. The officer admitted that I was being extremely cooperative, complying with his instructions and he did not know why I keep getting a deficient sample. He also annotated the police report to show that I took the test four times.
If he thought you were being cooperative and providing the sample as required how come he charged you with refusal?...
My driver's license was revoked for 1 year due to a DUI conviction. I forgot to surrender my plates. I deactivated them after I realized this (about five months later). During this time, I allowed my insurance coverage to expire as well as my tags. There was some insurance coverage lapse between the time my insurance coverage expired and when my tags expired. I've only got one month left until I get my license back and I haven't heard anything from the DMV about it. Will any of this come back to bite me when I attempt to reinstate my license? If so, how?
License? Probably not. If you applied for a restricted license but never picked it up, you may silk have to have an...

Hi I'm from sweden and I lived in USA for 7 months on a J-1 visa. While I was there something terrible happended to me that made me drive while I was drunk. After this I just wanted to go home, and the attorney told me I could, the only problem was that it would be hard for me to get into USA again. So I never showed up at the court date since he said it was okay. I didn't get any problem in Sweden and I still have my driving licence and I have been traviling to italy once. Now I am going to Australia because of work and I am wondering if this is gonna show up in Australia when they scan my passport or something? I am really worried.. Thank you.
That's pretty unlikely since Australia is a sovereign country and I wouldn't suspect a red notice being issued for a...
