I got my second DUI back in 1993. I started treatment a couple times, but never finished. I called DMV Mandatory Actions and they said my license is still suspended, and that I have to COMPLETE the 18-month DUI program to get it back. Is that right? It's been over 20 years! If so, can I get a restricted license for work in the mean time? How? Thank you for any help!

I had a slight accident after a fresh rain making the streets slippery. I slid into a rought iron fence thinking I did not hit it I drove home. I felt no jolt or forced stop. Shortly thereafter a CHP arrived at my home and went through the normal rigermarow. I was arrested for a DUI even after I arrived home. I did not go to jail that night. Will I end up serving time? What defense do I have If any? Where do I go from here? I have a very and I mean very small dent on my bumper and drove by the apparent accident site and noticed NO damage. Do I have to file a claim with insurance?
You will likely get charged with leaving the scene of the accident and possibly dui

Those offenses are not covered under Proposition 47. The only sections covered are as follows: 1. Penal Code ยง 459.5,...
I got a dui when I was 17. And it was .8 I pled guilty and the judge told me to go to dui classes. I can't afford it so I didn't go. And they issued a bench warrant. I went to court and the judge said to serve 10 days and do the glasses or do community service and the dui classes but I never went to neither of them because I did not have the money nore an id. Now I was stopped by law enforcement and went to jail for a day and let me out to tell me I have court a month later. What will the judge do ? I am now 22 and have not ever got a ffeloy.
