I am 43 years old and just completed by IDRC for my 2nd DUI in NJ. However, my first DUI offense was over 20 years ago.
I was automatically recommended for an ASSESSMENT based solely on the fact that this is my 2nd DUI . Do they have the right to recommend me to an assessment for a possible 12 week program based on something that happened 20 years ago? Shouldn't this be treated as a first offense? Extra info - in the past 20 years I have a spotless clean driving record and no other arrests.
It likely was sentenced as a first offense because of the ten year stepdown but it is still a 2nd offense. The IDRC is...
I was stopped for a DUI and the case has been adjourned 3 times. While there are other issues that is feel is bogus about the stop, the most important thing I think is that there is a huge error on the police report narrative. There is a paragraph about a completely different person's stop. The prosecutor was not impressed with this defense.

Does this mean a person would be able to drive during license suspension? If so, how would I get one? I have 4 DUI's, last one was 10 yrs ago
No, it is added protection during your suspension so that if you have a bad idea to drive while under the influence, it...

Interlock device and restricted licenses
Still pending. I would not count on a new law very soon.
I pled guity in NJ to DWI and was sentenced to 7 months. I had a prior DWI in another state, and that other state suspended me
for two years. Since I was suspended in NJ for only seven months, I thought I could get a license in NJ. Now DMV is telling me that I cannot get a license here until I get a letter from the OTHER state. Can DMV in NJ impose this requirement?
Yes. They can. NJ is one of 45 States which is part of the interstate compact. They will treat your prior DWI as if it...
