I surrendered my license for DUI, but am attending drug-court-ordered AA meetings that I need to drive to. Can I drive there?
I'm asking this b/c I saw paperwork on the kitchen table yesterday after my stepson attended court for his DUI. The paperwork said he had could drive his vehicle up until 2:00 pm yesterday. He was out in his car from 8:00 - 10:30 last night. My husband and stepson both claim he called his court appointed lawyer who said he has a provisional license "pending" and therefore could drive to the AA meetings. Never mind AA meetings are only an hour. I think they're lying and ignoring the law. I think a provisional license will be granted so he can go to school and AA meetings, but I don't think one magically appeared within 6 hours. I think he has to attend driving classes and jump through some hoops to get it first. Although he DOES have to attend these drug-court-ordered AA classes.
Best advice is you have your son contact DMV. Find out if he has a provisional license. Most times the DMV does this in...

What should I do about a 13 year old DUI if I want to travel to Canada over the summer?
I want to travel to Niagara Falls over the summer with my family. In 2003, I plead guilty to a DWI in the state of Va. I am rehabilitated as far as the state of VA is concerned - meaning I completed all my requirements. I have only had speeding tickets since (3 in 13 years all prepayable). I have read that having a DUI requires certain paperwork and penalties to be paid. However in November 2006 I entered Canada at Niagara Falls with my passport with no problems - so this is all news to me. What, if anything, should I do?
Canada has become stricter in the past few years regarding entry into the country, especially with DWIs. You could go...

How would an individual order a blood or hair sample to be used as an alternative to a court-mandated urine test for alcohol?
DWAI conviction, mandated counseling with random-ish urine testing for alcohol. I've terrible anxiety producing urine samples on demand, AKA "paruresis". Although I've managed to "produce" in the past, last night I was unable to provide a sample after an hour-long attempt. The longer I went without a trickle, the more difficult it became as my anxiety increased. Inability is equated with *refusal*, and negates credit for the five (of ten required) sessions I've attended thus far. I'll have to start over. I've been sober since my January 27th DWI incident, but the stress of "on-demand urinary performance" is crippling me, and I am unable to find a method of providing an admissible alternative blood/hair sample.
If you cannot work it out with your counseling program, you may want to contact your attorney to discuss the...
What happens when you are told you are in violation of the Ignition Interlock Device Condition?
I was convicted of DWI about almost a year ago now. My penalty was a $900, DDP class, and to have an interlock in my car. I got a letter from my court starting that I violated the Interlock on two separate occasions. I also have a conditional licenses. I called the company that my interlock in with and they told me that one of the occasions was power failure in my car not allowing the device to get power, I don't see how that's my fault. I replaced my car battery so it would not happen again. The other occasion was due to an alcohol positive. I would never get into my car under the influence and try starting it with that in my car, I was drinking the night prior and must have had something still on my breath.
You will be required to appear before the original sentencing court to address the issue of your alleged IID violations....
