If your question is about getting your license back, you should be able to get WA license if you are eligible to do so...
I have completed Advanced Dui course and Advanced Dui Class in Florida on a12 year old Dui Case in Florida.4th offense.
Question is: I cant get Florida to release my License unless I am Licensed in there State with a interlock and Counseling.There law States that I have to have the Interlock but I do not live there anymore.I have read into the Law and see It's Interlock -or Counseling not both.So it's up to the descresition of the officer.Not what the Dept of Motor Vehicle's Statutes actually are.Washington will not except anything unless Florida releases my Florida License.The law at the time of my conviction stated interlock installed for 6 months.Now Florida wants Five year interlock and five years of counseling.Best to my Knowledge I only have the 6 moth requirement that I belive I can handle....Thanks Danny daniel_mckenzie33@yahoo.com
You are correct that Washington won't allow you to be licensed until Florida says that you are clear. For Florida...
Interlock usage, without driving, is a court monitoring violation?
My negligent 1st degree driving sentence allows for alcohol consumption but not driving with a BAC > 0.000. I naively thought I should use the device to see when it was safe to drive, causing BAC's x 3 > 0.000 without attempting to start the car (both the BACs and not starting the car recorded by the interlock provider). Will this count as a violation, even though I did not try to start the car?
Whether you committed a probation violation depends on the exact terms of your probation. Without seeing the court...
Do I need an attorney after I took care of a DUI charge 17 years ago in Oregon but NOW they are saying that I didn't?
I was in Oregon at the time of the DUI and I have lived in Wa state the whole time and still do 17 years later. I took care of it: assessment, victims panel, treatment and gave the courts a certificate of completion. Fast forward 17 years later, I went to renew my license last week here in Washington state, like I have since then, and they told me that my license is suspended from Oregon! This was a surprise to me!!! Now the DMV in oregon is asking me to produce the certificate again (which I did not keep after all of these years) in order to get my license back! No records exist from that far back at the place I completed it at. So now, they say I have to do the treatment all over again! Even though I don't even drink. I was a kid back then!!! Do I need a lawyer?????
At a minimum, you should consult with an Oregon DUI defense attorney. They may know some secrets about how things were...
I had the interlock for 5 years per the deferred, was revoked, now have to have it again for another 6? Can I appeal this?
Entered into the deferred in 2006, paid all fines, completed treatment, however I got a felony very close to my completion date. I went to prison for the felony, and just went to my motion to revoke hearing, and went to jail for 60 days. I got home and found that I have to have the interlock for another 6 years? I would like to know if I can appeal this, and get my NONE interlock license back! My felony was not driving, or alcohol related, and have not had another DUI since.... Please advise, thanks! -Tobin

Can i still be charged with a DUI if i was 10-15 feet away from my vehicle with the keys in my pocket?
My car was in a ditch, i was on the phone with a towing company, cop comes and charges me and arrest me for a DUI. I was not behind the wheel, nor was my keys in the ignition. The officer did not pull me over.
Yes they can. However, your case may be stronger because they must independently be able to prove you drove the car....
Was this a legal stop? and will this violate Probation?
my license is suspended for a DUI, I have a Ignition interlock device and license. I was pulled over because the cop randomly ran my plates, which then came up with my information, saying I had a valid ID, but no valid Drivers License. It also said in his computer that I have been approved for a Ignition interlock license. (he even showed me his computer) he then wrote me a ticket for driving without a license, and I forgot my insurance at home, so I got a ticket for no insurance. The cop seemed VERY uneducated on Restricted Licenses.....I was legally driving so I am confused why I got pulled over in the first place. the Charges Were Code 46.20.015 and 46.30.020
Nobody can answer this question except the police officer who issued you the citation.
