Unusual suspension circumstances
I received a DUI-ARD in PA. I live in WA state. Both are compact states. Per my WA lawyer, the WA DMV is passive; they don't check the database until you renew your license. This is where the plot thickens. I'm moving to PA (in fact, I've delayed that move because of my suspension there). There's a 60 day window between when my PA suspension is up and when my WA license expires. If I legitimately establish residency in PA in that span, having already served my PA suspension, can I realistically expect to be able to surrender my WA license and get a PA license? Or will the WA penalty follow me to PA, even though I've already been punished there?
Your question involves mostly what you can accomplish under PA law, so your question is best directed to PA attorneys.
I pled guilty to DUI. I have SR 22, an IID on my personal car, and paid the application fee.
Can I drive a rental car for work? Do I need to put an IID on it?
If part of your plea says that you can't drive ANY VEHICLE WITHOUT AN IID, then the simple answer would likely be no,...
I need to drive an employer car. I pled guilty to DUI last month.
My understanding is I can't drive a company car unless I wait 30 days. I have an IID installed and have had it since December. When does the 30 day wait period begin? The day I pled or the day DOL notified me my license will be suspended for a year b/c of the guilty plea?
Have you also applied for the IIL from the DOL? Have you provided your employer with the Employer Declaration? The 30...
I plead guilty to DUI. Just got notice my license was suspended.
I have the interlock device in my car and SR22 insurance already. How do I keep my license from being suspended? Can I keep driving as long as I have the interlock device in my car and SR 22 insurance?
You need to submit proof of the SR22 and proof of your interlock to the DOL. They will require you to pay a fee and...
Will I be drug tested at my pretrial hearing?
This is my first criminal offense (DUI for opiates/morphine) and already had my arraignment. Will I be drug tested at my court date? Like will the police possibly take me to the hospital to get blood taken like when I was arrested? Or do you normally only get drug tested at probation/your first drug evaluation if they lessen it on a plea deal to neglegent or reckless (im guessing it will be lessened on a plea deal since it is my first offense and my pd said MOST LIKELY that is what will happen on a first offense) thank you!
Drug testing is usually only done once someone has been sentenced, as a condition of probation. You mentioned that you...

Why can't you get a Ssn? Because you are an undocumented immigrant?
Pulled over for DUI, and need to know what to do.
My husband got pulled over and blew a .116 and .122. This is his first time. The car was towed and he was driven to the police station. They let him call a friend to take him home. He still has his license and they didn't mention about taking it away. They gave him a form "Request for DUI Hearing", and let him go. What does this mean? Is this consider an arrest? What do we need to do? Thanks.
"Request for DUI Hearing", and let him go. What does this mean?" -He has 20 days to request a hearing to challenge the...
