Q: I got dwi 25 years ago never finished my probation dont even remember how long it was for. in texas
I get a background check from the Doj thru gambling commision every 2 yrs and passed been working same job 9 years but i want to get a notary license is that possible or did i take the 6 hour class for nothing.
Since you were able to pass the background checks, it sounds like the DOJ database does not match your name to your record in Texas. I believe that the same DOJ database will be used to check your background record for notary public and you will pass it just like you passed the gambling commission background checks.
As far as your second question: in California, a failure to complete the probation for a DUI would result in a bench warrant. But, because your case is in Texas, you need a local Texas attorney to look into that.
more info needed as to how Texas handles old cases.
in calif if you failed on any condition of probation, a bench warrant would issue and it would be there until cleaned up.
my guess is if it was not spotted for a gaming license that it probably will not surface for a notary investigation.
