I got my license suspended at age 18 from 2 DUIs both were under the legal limit but I was under age so I got the DUIs .. Since then I have gotten 3 driving on suspended (in the past 9 years) I moved to california a year and a half ago and cleaned up my life and now need my license to transport my daughter to and from school so I need to start the process. I also have a pending case that I never went to court for (driving on suspended) . I am trying to fill out the packet that the Secretary of State provides to apply to get my license back and it's asking for specific dates of my criminal history (I do not know specific dates) so I may need a criminal docate. Where do I even start?

I answered this same exact question yesterday. The answer hasn't changed.
I am finishing up 9 months probation. I have weekly etg and drug screens and have been on non reporting for 2 months. My probation is scheduled to end in a couple weeks. I was told I would receive a letter in the mail. Any idea if I will have to go back to court, or get a release or something, or will the letter just tell me I'm done? Is it usually exactly 9 months from the first day of probation, ex Jan 1st to Sept 1, or is it an estimate and can go longer or til the,end,of the month? Just wondering because I may be going or of town for work the next week and will need to change my plans or get exemption for travel if this is the case.
Call your probation officer and seek the answers to your questions. Sometimes courts send you a notice that your...
“I was stopped for "familiar to dim" in Michigan. The police found a half-full bottle of vodka in my backseat. I took a BAC in which I blew .053 because I was drinking earlier that morning but had slept it off. They cited me a ticket for "open intox" and a warning for "famliar to dim", and they allowed me to get back in my car and drive away. My question is: Can the prosecutor add a OWVI charge (.05 to .079) to my case even though the police let me drive away?”
The prosecutor can only add a charge if there is evidence that you committed a crime. Further, the PBT you took on the...
