Can I apply for restricted license alongwith the IID installation or do I have to wait for the restriction period to end?

Told by Orange County court that I was never convicted of DUI three years ago. How does this impact ability to get license back?
I’m a Florida resident, working for a CA company, and spend a good portion of time in both states. In July 2010, I was arrested for DUI in Orange Co, CA, by OC Sheriffs. I blew 0.13 They confiscated my FL D/L and impounded my rental car, etc. After the DA took a couple of months to file on me, I eventually appeared in court and was found eligible for CA’s “first offender” program. For various reasons, I did not sign up for the program. I was subsequently picked up on a warrant for said failure to sign up, plus a felony drug possession charge. I plead guilty on the possession charge, did some county time (to include time for FTA on the DUI case plus dismissal of court costs on same), completed PC1210 program and had my three years of formal probation discharged after one year. Fast forward to 2014. After basically getting by via public transportation and bicycle for the past three years (I was never in CA long enough to complete the three month DUI program) I get laid off, stuck in CA, with now time enough to sign up for and complete the program, hoping to return to FL for work. A treatment provider in LA Co near where I reside suggested that I ask the court to be on an accelerated program which can be completed in six weeks instead of twelve, if the court would approve. But a trip to Orange Co court where my cases were adjudicated yielded a surprise: I was never convicted of the DUI in Orange County! Apparently the case was dropped completely in favor of the harsher drug possession charge (tho I thought I had convictions for both.) Is this just a distinction without a difference? The CA DMV says they will not issue me a driver’s license without completing the first offender program. Florida renewed my license (listed as valid, w/o restrictions on their website ‘til 2021), but will not send me the physical license until I’ve completed the program. Should I just complete the CA program to get my CA license, then return to FL? Does the not being convicted of the DUI have any bearing whatsoever on either DMV? Can I disclose to future employers that I’ve not had any DUI convictions based on the court’s failure to convict even tho I must complete the class for DMV? I have not yet filed the requisite SR22; any possibility I won’t need to without the court conviction? Will legal representation do me any good at this point with either state’s DMV? Sorry for the length of the post. Thanks in advance for your time.
You need to contact an experienced DUI/DMV lawyer ASAP!!! There is a little known procedure that will allow you to...
I went for DUI jury trial and lost. Though I have been convicted, haven't been sentenced yet. My sentencing is set for 10 days from now. Does this conviction already show on my DMV record? Shall I start the punishment related to DMV already? (Eg: IID, AA classes, restricted licence etc..)
The best person to direct your questions to is the attorney that represented you at trial. For general information,...
What could be the penalty? Would this be considered my first DUI offense? What DUI program would I be facing?
I just recently received a DUI. I received a DUI prior, 2 years ago when I was under 21 (20 years old). My license was suspended for a year and I enrolled in the educational portion of a dui program. I completed the program within a few months and obtained a restricted license before the suspension year was over. It has been 2 years now.

i'm going alone, should i mention this ? i'd appreciate any tips on how to hopefully pass DMV hearing. so far i'll probably admit it was wrong to get behind the wheels while i was drinking and apologize What you think what should in this hearing.
That's a problem. They shouldn't be rounding the number up. Regardless, if your plan is just to go in and admit...
