Pulled over while texting at night because i swerved a little on the road. I had also been drinking not too long before being pulled over. I did the field sobriety tests and passed, then i blew a .08 Another officer came and took my car and parked it at a nearby church and i was then taken to the station. At the station i blew two more times, which was a .06 and then a .08 I was told i had a DWI but am free to call someone to pick me up, however nobody answered and i stayed in the cell till i was released at 4 a.m. when i got a taxi and picked up my car and went home. My license was also suspended a week. This is my 1st offense and it is a Class 1 misdemeanor

I was charged with 3rd DWI in 10 years but plead guilty to 2nd DWI in 5 in court. All of the DWI's occurred within 10 years but due to a clerical error by the magistrates office they were unable to have the 1st DWI certified before my court date. Since I plead guilty to the 2nd the judge notified me I will have my license suspended for 3 years and will be able to obtain a restricted license after the 1st year with an ignition interlock. I've checked with the DMV and on my compliance summary it says I must petition the court for a restricted after 3 years or wait 5 years for a full restoration. Is there any way I can get a hearing to see if the DMV will remove their revocation and follow the courts guidelines? Or am I going to have to wait the 3 years before petitioning for a restricted?
Many people have this type of problem with the DMV. Unfortunately, the DMV tends to disregard the conviction as it is...
