Can the DMV refuse to give my friend her restricted licence until she enrolls in a DUI program even if court doesn't require?
My bestfriend was arrested for DUI but got off with a Wet Reckless. Courts didn't require her to take DUI classes, but DMV said she had to be enrolled in a 3 month program to get her restricted license after the 30 day suspension. They also told her she doesn't have to complete it, just need to enroll?? That doesn't make sense to me. Why pay for a class that the courts don't require her to?
DA's office said my case was rejected. this was after i went to court and judge said no charges filed.should i still be worried?
I had my lawyer show up for me on my first appearance and he said no charges were filed. that's when i called the DA and they told me my case was rejected. Im not fully confident in my lawyer therefore Im looking for answers here.I had a 0.06 BAC and got pulled over for going 5 miles over the limit. was in jail for a little over an hour.
If the case was rejected by the Ventura DA you are in good shape. There will be no paperwork to show case was rejected....
How do I get my restricted licence un suspended after being dropped from the 18 month DUI program for not being able to pay?
I finally got a restricted licensez after being suspended since December 2008 for 3 DUI's! I have the IID installed, SR 22 insurance, and have been re enrolled in the 18 month DUI class! I'm on SSI and was unable to pay so the school dropped me! Prior to this happening I spoke with my Counselor and the administrator at the DUI program about payment and wasn't offered a sliding scale for payment or even told that once the school dropped me I'd have to complete the 18 month program before qualifying for another restricted license! What do I do now! I have a nine month old daughter and need to drive for her and my classes!
Unfortunately, that program is key. DMV won't release your license until you satisfy that term.
Before this DUI (which i got 0.11%) i had a clean record. Now i am stressing because i don't know what to expect and what to prepare for. I was taking 2 college classes while working part-time, but i recently decided that i want to change career paths, so staying in these classes will be pointless and cause me more stress that i don't need right now but at the same time i know that going to school will look "better", or does that not matter? Because i want to work 2 jobs to pay this thing off before enrolling in different classes next semester. I still have proof that i payed for and attended these classed for a period of time though. what should i expect?
A first appearance is an arraignment. The judge would generally not do more than confirm your name and tell you what...
I got a dui when living in Hawaii over 5 years ago. Got a dui in CA 2 mos ago - will my hawaii dui count as a 1st offense?
I moved back to CA a few months after I got the dui - waited until my suspension was lifted before getting a CDL, the Hawaii dui would have dropped off my record last January had I stayed there.
If the elements of DUI in Hawaii are substantially similar to that of CA, then the answer is yes.
I was arrested for drunk in pub. Went to court. Attorney told me to not pleased guilty. We set another court date. I mixed up the month and missed my court date. 11days later I went in to put myself in calendar to clear up the warrant. Will I be arrested? I'm 22. No proofs other than one red light camera ticket years ago. And I am a young professional with a promising career. Please help. Thankyou
If you already have an attorney, why are you asking for advice from strangers on the Internet? You're much less...
You should be directing this question to the program provider you are interested in signing up with. Not here.
