FAILURES TO APPEAR :
I was reading online if I don't finish 9-month class. get IID or file for SR22 the DUI automatically will fall off the record after 10 years and i can reapply for new license. I haven't driven in since my license got suspended in February 2011. Any advice or do I need to retain a lawyer.
If you have paid your fine, completed 3 yr or 5 year Informal Probation, completed alcohol classes, and completed Victim Impact Class (Mothers Against Drunk Drivers), you need to hire an Criminal/DUI Defense Attorney to file Motion to Expunge the DUI Conviction. I do them quite frequently where a Judge grants the Motion and changes the Court Record from DUI Conviction to Dismissal. Then, you should be able to apply for a new license with Certificate of Completion of the Alcohol Classes and SR22.
Wishing you the best.
A: The DUI suspension won't go away with the passage of time, it will remain in place until it is cleared, period. You can call Mandatory Actions in Sacramento (1.916.657.6525) to determine what needs to be done but judging from your question you know what you have to do.

see the comment by atty Grant below.......except he is saying if you have done everything!
i don't think DMV and the Court will allow you to drive until you have done everything ordered by the court and DMV.
Technically there would be a bench warrant for your being in violation of summary probation.
