I would like to try and get a drivers license in tennessee if I am able to
I lost my license in 2003 for life for my 4 th. dui and voluntarily surrendered it in 2011 per fldmv , I now live in tennessee and have not tried to get a drivers license yet for fear that florida might stop me from being able to get a drivers license again .

What penalties am I looking at for my DUI?
I got pulled over a few months ago and got arrested for a DUI and driving on revoked. I had recently taken xanax. The officer said I swerved, which I did. But I believe I swerved because I wasn't looking at the road at the time. I was driving by my sisters work to see if she was there so I could see her for a bit. Anyhow, the officer gave me a field sobriety test and I failed. At the time the pills had not taken effect yet, but I agreed to a blood test. why I don't know, I was under pressure and was kind of scared so I cooperated the best I could. My sentencing is tomorrow, what kind of penalties am I looking at? I had taken 4 xanax bars at the time if that helps
Depends on the coverall circumstances of the arrest. Call a local DUI lawyer for a free consultation.
Can I get a dui charge dropped or reduced in WV. I live in Kingsport, TN. I've been working in WV from out of town.
This is my first offense. I have 2 jobs that require a license. I can't afford to lose my license or even have this on my record. I have a wife 2 kids and my house is about to go into foreclosure amongst other financial issues. The last ticket I've had in the last 5 years was for speeding in the state of VA. The arresting officer pulled me over because I flicked my cigarette out the window. So that was his grounds and then he said I crossed the center line. I blew a < .15 per what my paperwork said which wasn't not disclosed to me at the scene. And then the sobriety test was conducted on a sloping uneven roadway on top of 5 to 10 mph winds which made it difficult to maintain balance with hands at side for both tests.
Unfortunately Tennessee lawyers cannot tell you much… If anything… about a West Virginia DUI. (With one exception)…...
