I was in court and had a ovi amended to a physical control. I didn't appeal the suspension in the required time. However the judge dismissed the als suspension for a guilty verdict of the amended physical control. My question is do i still have to pay the reinstatement fee, take any classes, ask them for privileges, take the exam? I can't find any research online and don't want to add any charges or ever see the court again besides matters regarding this case by driving to work or any court approved places. If i still owe the reinstatement fee is there any other less expensive options. I also was wondering if i have court approved privileges do i even have to pay the reinstatement first or can i just drive?

I know it sounds weird but I have failed my interlock several times due to drinking the night before so it was above .02 but not above .08.... I had a summons about a year ago for the same thing although the fails were not due to alcohol consumption they were from mouthwash, hair product and other random things... I went in front of the judge told him that so he had the interlock people come and explain that I was telling the truth. At that time my probation officer recommended I be released form probation and the judge agreed to sign off on it, I then asked if I could get my license back and he said no just continue with the same privileges with the interlock on. I am just wondering what exactly can I get in trouble for worst case scenario if I explain what happened?
