DUI in CA with a BAC over .15 and am licensed in WA state. Will the WA MVD take action, and if so, how?
DUI in CA with a BAC over .15 and am licensed in WA state. Will the WA MVD take action, and if so, how? Trying to determine if i will lose my license (assume I will), for how long, and will they require an IID? I have a lawyer in CA representing me currently. I have not determined if I want to fight or plead guilty until I know more specifics about the outcome. Problem is, no one seems to know....
The answer to your question depends on several factors. If California decides to take action against your license for...
I hit a car when I got a DUI
I disputed the amount of damage to the car I hit and was told when I pled guilty in court there would be a restitution hearing, but I haven't heard from anyone about when this hearing will be. Do I set up the hearing or does the court let me know when it is? Do I need an attorney at the restitution hearing?

How to ensure I can enter Canada with Vacated Negligent Driving 1?
I entered a plea on the Charge of Negligent Driving 1 in January 2007. All fees were paid and probation completed by January 2009. This year (2015) I was granted a motion to vacate this charge and so the charge now states not guilty. Based on my research there is no clear answer as to if this would allow me to visit Canada for Vacation. I know that over 5 years have passed so I could be eligible to apply for rehabilitation, however, I am planning to visit Canada this coming June for the 2015 Women's World Cup. So it seems I don't have the time for the rehabilitation to be processed (as I read it could take 6 months to over a year to be approved). Any advice to how I should proceed to ensure I won't be denied entry? Thanks
