If a passenger in a parked car receives an open container ticket in SC does this go on their driving record or insurance ?
The driver did not receive a ticket but the passenger was issued a ticket for an open container with a court date, will this go on their driver's record, license, or insurance ?
The answer is that it depends. The statute makes no distinction between drivers and passengers. It does, however,...
I was convicted of Felony DUI (Great Bodily Injury) on Sept. 17, 2009. I was sentenced to 30 days house arrest and 5 years of Probation suspended on 15 years imprisonment. My probation end date is Sept. 17, 2014 and have no issues regarding probation. My main concern is my Drivers License. Per South Carolina statute a persons Drivers License can only be suspended for the time of imprisonment plus 3 years. Also in this statue it says ; " This period of incarceration shall not include any portion of a suspended sentence such as probation, parole, supervised furlough, or community supervision." I've been to the DMV and they have told me my license is suspended until 2027 and only a court order can change that. How is this possible and what are my options pursuant to South Carolina Law?
It seems as if the DMV considers the suspended sentence as controlling on them. I think you should get a local...
Can an attorney help me with this rather convoluted tale of DWI/DUI convictions and subsequent license suspensions?
I was a licensed SC driver and was convicted of my 1st DWI in NC in Oct '07. My license was suspended for a year. I was then convicted of a 2nd misdemeanor DUI in SC in Jan '11 and a 3rd misdemeanor DWI in NC in Feb '11. These last 2 convictions haven't been reported to the other state's DMV as of yet (nearly 3 years). The SCDMV shows I was eligible to receive my license back in January of 2012 but NC reports I'm suspended until Feb. 2015. I am aware that further suspensions could result if & when NC/SC find out about the third DWI/DUI. I've tried to contact the courts & both state's DMVs to try and make them aware of the 3rd offense to no avail. I decided to wait until the NC suspension is up in 2015 to attempt to restore driving privileges but still fear suspensions then. What can I do?
Really the best thing to do is just wait out the process and not needlessly inform other states about these offenses....
I was convicted of three misdemeanor charges of Driving Under the Influence in NC/SC six years ago all in a span of one year. Since then, I have completed a bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's degree in criminal justice while working full-time. and staying clean and sober. I would like to be a substance abuse counselor and obtain my Master of Social Work. However, I am hesitant to spend the time and money acquiring this degree if ultimately I will be denied licensure. Can anyone offer sound advice as to whether this would be a worthwhile endeavor or an exercise in futility?
You don't have a problem in the DUI category -- you have a problem in the professional licensing or administrative law...
My fla drivers license was revoked 5 yrs-dui...the 5 yrs has expired-i no longer live in the state of Fla ..
1, do i need to do anything if I have a valid drivers license from another state? 2. do i need to clear fl driving record if i do not wish to have my fl license reinstated? 3. can i drive in fl with my valid drivers license.
Illinois would not issue you a DL is your status in FL is revoked, suspended, withdrawn or not eligible in FL.
I have a Florida 5 year revocation for driver license. When I obtain a Florida hardship license, are there other states that would allow me to transfer my hardship license to that state? My husband has terminal cancer and I do not want to remain in Florida after his death. I want to relocate to a state where my relatives live, or at least a nearby state.
Without knowing more details, it is hard to say
I've been charged multiple times for d.u.s and I never had a driver's license
As nice as it would be to get away with a crime simply by not having the necessary permission to be where you wanted to...
