I've been trying to get my license back but my insurance is too high because of the DUI on my driving record. Thankfully, I was a minor when it happned and I have completed all probation/tasks so I can get my record sealed. When I get it sealed will it also be off my driving record so that my insurance isn't as high? Thanks
Should be. That's what "sealed" means. Law enforcement should still be able to find it, however.

My temporary driver's license I received after DUI charge expires on April 6th, but my court date is this week. I understand that after a DUI conviction in court, they will contact the DMV and the suspension will start. My question is, can I drive to/from the court appearance with the temporary license? How long after the court conviction will the suspension start?
You can drive to and from court this week on the temporary license. If you are convicted of DUI, which is...
I received informal probation from a DUI in 2010. It is set to end this year in July. This morning I received a citation for driving in the carpool lane. I am curious to see if this will affect my probation and if it will effect me negatively in any way.

Could I reduce jail time/house arrest to a larger fine? There was video of the incident and the arresting officer actually didn't want to arrest me and tried to allow me pay for the stolen property and let me go but the "victim" was insistent on pressing charges.
Maybe. It depends on you hiring a quality attorney to represent you on both matters. A good attorney may be able to get...
Hello dear AVVO lawyers. I have been fortunate or unfortunate enough to get a second DUI for a drug related issue (Non alcoholic). The Court ruled for a 3 month DUI Class program. however when i called DMV they told me that i need to do an 18 month DUI class program, and also install a "breath alcohol ignition interlock device" into my car. even though i got the DUI for a non alcoholic related issue. Why is there a discrepancy between what the DMV tries to impose on me and the court ruling? how do I go about doing only what the ruled, and not what the DMV is trying to impose on me out of the blue? I have checked my court documentation, and it specifically states that other than the fine i only need to do a 3 month program to get my license and life back. I appreciate all and any advise
The DMV controls the issuance of a license after a DUI. It is hard to believe that the court would order only a 3 month...
I was pulled over at highway 280 for speeding around 85mph. CHP asked me if I drank any thing I said no at the time but later I told him one drink. I did the sobriety test and blew the breathalyzer and got .09. When I arrived at jail I got .08 for first time and .07 15 minutes later. I was cooperative during the arrest and when I was in custody. Do I have a chance to lower my DUI to wet reckless?
That .07 will save you a world of hurt with DMV... your license should be on it's way back to you in a few weeks (...
