Who gave dmv authority to make decisions outside of the court?
I just got a second dui unfortunately. I went to court and was sentenced 9 months dui classes. Dmv is telling me mandatory 18 month classes. How can dmv make this decision legally? Who gave them authority to make my consequences worse than the judge? And if this is "mandatory" then why wouldn't the judge just say 18 months to begin with so offenders aren't feeling jerked around? This just doesn't make sense to me. If i do the 9 months only, will the dmv withhold my license forever? Can I just move to another state after the 9 months and get a license there? This is the main reason i ask, i was suppose to move this week to nevada and am not wanting to stay in cali for IA for the next 18 mo ths Ugh, so many questions, please help!

Over 20 years ago I was arrested for a DUI. Will this show on live scan?
My arrest was not violent, no one was injured, no accident. I was stopped in front of my home. I was convicted and went to school, paid a $1500.00 fine, did 4 days community service. recently I applied for supplement pay to help offset my expenses to help care for my disabled grandchild.
Probably not, but the only way to be sure is to request a report for yourself. Costs about $30.

What constitutes a DUI on Ambien? The warning label says "take care while driving or operating heavy machinery".
I have a DUI trial coming up on 3-17-14 related to Ambien. I was not drinking, the medication is prescribed to me, and it is necessary when I have hypomanic episodes for sleep. At the time I was taking Ambien, Trileptal, and Seroquel. All prescribed to me, taken responsibly, before bedtime with my girlfriend caring for me. According to my girlfriend, I woke up around 1:30AM, bizarre behaviors, and then got dressed and said I was going to the store. I ended up totaling my truck and being arrested for a DUI. This happened in August 2011. The city filed 5 days before one year, and the trial has been postponed many times by me so I could gather more info, and them because the arresting officer was out on leave. I'm desperate to win and need some strategies.
The operative terms are "under the influence" it can be alcohol, unprescribed drugs or prescribed ones! People taking...
Must I answer questions or produce ID at a Drivers license / DUI checkpoint ?
I recently drove through a DL / DUI checkpoint and random drivers were being directed into a parking lot for screening. I was not so directed. In the past I have refused to answer questions at DUI checkpoints and been waved through. I had not been drinking and had nothing to hide. This scenario is new to me. Am I legally required to submit to and cooperate with this ?
Yes, you are. It is not optional.
