The state made an error of not revoking my license for a dui in 2001. Can they still be harsh in judgement from their error?
Will I still have to get high risk insurance for 3 years even though I have had my license the last 12 years and have a good driving record? Do I still get revoked and have to get a permit to drive to work? Does the state suspend your license for a year then revoke it? Since this is their error will they be more lenient with me since I have been driving 12 years with a good record for those 12 years?
Yes the state may impose the revocation even years later. The remedy was for you to take action back in 2001. Instead...
My license was suspended for a dui 13 years ago, now the state is wanting to revoke it for that. Can they?
I got a paper from the state saying my license is being revoked because of a dui 13 years ago. I was put on 1 yr probation, classes, court cost and my license was suspended (I got a paper from the state saying suspended not revocation)for 1 yr. I was discharged from probation after completing everything. I paid my reinstatement fee to get my license back after the year of suspension. I have had my license for the last 12 years and have renewed it at least 3 times. Now the state is saying my license is going to be revoked because I didn't go to a hearing.
The government may still try to take this action.
I recieved four tickets . I am currently on court supervision for a DUI and am supposed to get my license back in May .
The four tickets were battery , obstructing a police officer , consumption of a minor , and acceptance or purchase of alcohol of a minor . I was at my house when i was arrested . I did not have any alcohol around me and before that i was punched in the face by a person i did not know . she thought i was someone else i defended myself and walked to my home . they came to my home and arrested me i did not fight it and i did not argue . i told them i was defending my self . they did not give me a field sobrity test or make me blow .

I rec'd a DUI citation in S.D. they are willing to drop it to a Reck. Drvg. and have it sealed. How does this effect my IL CDL
I have a valid Illinois CDL license for my employment. How might it effect this. They are telling me it will be sealed in South Dakota. How does this effect my Illinois CDL?
Reckless alone will not DQ the CDL. However, it will be a serious violation and if you have two of those in three years...
