IF that were to happen and I reside in one part of the state and conviction were to be in another part of the state. Would they allow me to drive my vehicle home and then begin the suspension along with community service?

From your personal experience, how many solely alcohol-related DUI ARD programs have included random drug testing?
Person X has no prior record, is a good university student with professional aspirations, and presented him/herself this way during court proceedings and initial meeting with probation officer. X was pulled over for a moving violation and refused the chemical test. A breathalyzer was administered upon arrest, and X has been in the ARD program for three of six total months so far without having to take any drug tests. X is complying with all court mandated requirements, has completed the Alcohol Highway Safety Class, and has been up to date with reporting forms. To X's knowledge, his/her probation officer does not even remember him/her.

Filed a PennDot appeal with the Prothonotary Office myself for refusal in DUI case. Do I qualify for an OLL or PL ?
Officer gave me breath test but never explained what they wanted me to sign or why (turned out to be blood test request). PennDot wants to suspend my license for one year and I currently go to school full time and work full time with commuting 45min+ to each location.

I'm also curious if I should even use my lawyer for this matter since he has not been very helpful thus far. Officer agreed to let me into the ARD program as well.
If you are charged with a refusal and PENNDOT suspends your license for 1 year unfortunately you are not eligible for...
I was charged with a DUI and at the prelim hearing the officer said he would not contest me applying. The prelim was continued until next month so that I can finish school. When can I apply for ARD ? Does my lawyer have to do it or can I go down to the courthouse and file it myself ?
Self-representation is never a good idea, even for ARD. Each county has its own requirements that have to be completed...
If someone is attempting the ARD program and has a probation officer and the person did not complete the requirements...Do they only charge toward the DUI..In other words no violation of probation?
Because through ARD the defendant never admits guilt and no guilt is found, there is no conviction. No conviction means...
Currently facing a first time DUI charge and officer agreed to accept an ARD but was not sure if an underage in college was simply downgraded or if I was put into the program. (Roughly 8 years ago)
Eligibility for ARD is determined by the District Attorneys of each county. While not familiar with the specifics in...
