Q: Ok i was dropped from a 3 month DUI program ...
I feel they were in the wrong ( i explained all this in my first question....
The thing is my DUI will be 10 years old this June 2022 ... And i went to the court and DUI liaison for my options but got the run around and i eventually just forget about rectifying it but i now have come in to issues again and trying to figure out my best course of action ... I really can't afford to do another 3 month class right now but need to get my license back! What can I do? Please help
A: If you didn’t comply with terms of Summary Probation there would be a bench warrant. Ask your lawyer.
A: Unfortunately, the DMV requires you to enroll and complete a 3 months DUI program (AB541) in order to get your license back. You can request from the court that they let you re-enroll into the program so you don't have to start all over but if 10 years has passed, I'm affraid they might not let you do so.
A: You cannot get a license until you complete the program. If the program will accept you with the credit you earned, great, if not, then you start from the beginning. Obviously, there may be other concerns regarding the court aspect of your case.
It is possible that the AB541 3 month alcohol program provider is still in business and has records of your participation in the DUI program from 10 years ago. However, you still need a court order to re-enroll and complete the program. and, you will have to pay for the balance of the program, at least.
Regardless, you need to get the warrant cleared first. Then, the court will issue a new referral. You may want an attorney for that, to reduced the risk of being remanded into custody from the courtroom and having to post bail to get out, then come back to court again to talk to the judge.
