The mandatory minimum is 45 days in jail. You did not state the Sentence, but sometimes a lengthier Sentence can include in house rehabilitation, and possibly other things. Going home is not an option however. He should have thought about the Sentence when the Judge was considering it.
You get the Paid In Full Receipts from the Court Clerk wherever you were convicted of DUI. It help[s to go there in person with your Docket Numbers. Call the Court Clerk first to make sure you have the right Court. Older Convictions can take longer than recent ones.
I have been incarcerated for 24 years, and noticed the DOS states they wanted me to pay $240 reinstatement fees and go to DUI school. Just paid the $240, but I am told I may not need to go to DUI school since it was so long ago.
Second question: Why do I have a Tennessee DL/ ID Number if I've never lived in that state?
I received my conviction there however, this doesn't make any sense. I have paid the courts and completed all requirements for my conviction. I also paid a reinstatement fee to the state... Read more »
I am not sure of your problem. But you will have to take this up with the Department of Safety, which you apparently have just touched the surface of. Hire a competent attorney to look into this.

Heroin in his system.Came to our home and arrested him on. Feb 18 for a drug charge. Why did they rearrest him? He had no drugs in car or on his person on dui arrest. Can they file a warrant for what was in his blood?
No they cannot arrest him for a drug charge because he had drugs in his system. He had to be in possession of them. There must be more to it. I recommend you call the clerk's office and get a copy of the affidavit of complaint and see what it says. I also recommend you hire an attorney to...Read more »
Hopefully it was reported to DOS that you completed all sentencing requirements. However the DOS will probably want at least a driver's test and a reinstatement fee. If proof of the sentencing completion is required, you will have to go the Court in which you were convicted to get...Read more »

Yes, it happens alot. The LEO needs some evidence that the suspect was driving the vehicle earlier. Then he puts together his proof of intoxication, and he gets a Warrant for DUI. Your Friend needs a competent attorney to prepare for a thorough Preliminary Hearing.

You should be able to get DOS to issue a new title certificate in the purchaser's name. Ask your County Clerk first, then call Nashville. Once issued send a copy to your agent, and try to deliver the title to the owner. Also that is probably a lease with option to purchase transaction,...Read more »
Not sure of your problem. But you need to try to get the License at another DOS facility. Otherwise you will need a very competent, and expensive, attorney to file an administrative action. That action could take at least a year, prior to appeals. Getting a blow meter for a little while...Read more »
