In the past I got a DWI charge so I had to do the interlock along with other programs and fines which I completed all successfully. I was denied my license after the completion for the reason being I've been to prison and was asked to to the interlock for 6 more mths and more programs and fines. Once again I completed all programs successfully and paid all fines. The second time around though I fail the interlock one time but it was because of drinking, so I've been denied still for my license now on the grounds because I failed the interlock 1 time.

Consider speaking to a local DUI lawyer, most will give you a free DUI consultation, most likely you'll be able to leave.
I got a dwi in 2010, and I was found guilty. I was required to complete probation, community service, and attend therapy. Once all of this was completed, my dwi case was dismissed. So what does this mean? Will it show up on my driving record as guilty or dismissed? If it's dismissed, does this mean my guilty conviction was thrown out?
