Albuquerque, NM asked in DUI / DWI for New Mexico

Q: What if i have/had a VA drivers license, recieved a DUI in Alabama and now live in NM. Completed all AL requirements but

VA will not release the suspension even though i now live in NM without a payment and fulfillment of DUI requiremnts for VA. I do not want a VA license but do need a NM license. Do i still have to complete VA requirements even though i live in NM and have completed the AL DUI punishment requirements?

A: Yes, you do. Your problem is that you cannot get a license in one state without having any holds or suspensions released by your previous home state. Contact a VA lawyer if you are confused about the VA suspension.
