A: Go to court on October 27 for your court date or you will have an additional $300 civil assessment on your record and your license will be suspended again.

A: Since you mention that you have completed your classes i take it you are on Probation for a DUI. That also means that you are charged with Vehicle code section 14601.2 that is more serious than other types of suspension. They will also presume that you fled because you were under the influence again (if so, better to have a hit and run than another dui). So you have the Probation Violation and the new charge that can result in jail.

You should meet with an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately so they can appear for you and negotiate on your behalf.

Good luck!
