The answer is, it depends. If you were interdicted then it is illegal for you to purchase or possess alcohol. Often times, the courts will also include in the terms of your probation and good behavior that you were not allowed to purchase or possess alcohol. Virginia is an at will employment... Read more »

It was a plea agreement from DUI to "wet reckless" with one of the conditions being to take ASAP before getting my license back. I am unable to take ASAP for financial reasons, can't secure employment, and this is holding me back from life progression.

You will most likely have no success in doing that because it was plea between you and the Commonwealth which is basically a contract. Additionally, you are well beyond the time to appeal or reopen your case.

There is certainly a fertile argument, that he was not impaired without a visible effect to his muscular, skeletal movement.
I was arrested for 3rd DWI within 5-10yrs in Virginia. My 2nd offense was in 2015 and my 1st was 2004 (18yrs ago). Would the charge still be 3rd DWI?
answered on Aug 3, 2022
It should not be a felony if the first was back in 2004.

I means the government suspects you were driving under the influence of drugs or a combination of drugs and alcohol.

Unfortunately, ASAP has the control here. You are in the position of being at their mercy. Though the program should potentially be tailored to more individual needs as they say they are doing, most people are treated very similar and have to go through the same amount of time for their courses....

On my driving record it says I killed someone on a dui. I got a dui but I never killed anyone. What can I do to get it removed? Can I sue someone about this they are making me do a treatment session due to this.
answered on Jun 9, 2021
This is may have been a clerical error and may be corrected by contacting the clerk of the court in which you were convicted.
The law goes into effect on July 1st, and my first intake appointment isn’t until May 12

Absolutely, alcohol is also legal but the condition of your ASAP supervision requires no drugs and no alcohol.
answered on Mar 16, 2021
It depends on if the court required you to or if DMV requires you to. The court can tell you that its not required but the DMV is a separate entity and can make you take ASAP related to their requirements. If neither has ordered you to, then you are free to go.

You should go to the Virginia DMV and get a "compliance summary" which will tell you what you need to do to get your license reinstated.
I was able to get my license reinstated as early as possible as I completed everything the courts required well before I was able to get my license reinstated. I thought it only stayed on my driving record for 7 years but everything I see now says it's 11 years. This case was in Chesapeake, VA... Read more »

A DWI in Virginia stays on your driving record for 11 years. Unfortunately as the law is currently it stays on your criminal record forever. There are efforts in the legislature to reform the current system but as it is now it cannot be removed from a criminal record.
Fiance received a ruling of good behavior for 2 years and the judge made the decision on June 1st. Well my fiance got a dwi while he was awaiting trial for the domestic violence.

Typically, an offense that occurred before the judge's order will not violate the "general good behavior" order.
My car was broke down and i was waiting for my boss to come and i got a Dui. This happened 15 yrs ago. Do i still need to go to classes and have the interlock installed on my car
answered on Oct 10, 2020
If you never attended ASAP the DMV will require you to do so in order to get your license reinstated. The best thing to do is to contact the DMV for a compliance summary.
I was also told I'd have to have a breathalyzer installed in my vehicle for at least 6 months. Last year or so I asked for a transcript of my charges to ask the D.M.V. what I need to to start getting my licenses reinstated. Since the breathalyzer wasn't present on my transcript would I...

In classic legal form the answer is it depends. If the court didn’t order you to have the interlock in your vehicle and you simply walked without driving during your suspension time you may be able to simply finish the ASAP course and pay your reinstatement fee to get your license back.

Unfortunately the VA DMV will require you to complete ASAP in order to have your license reinstated.
I have took the required Dui and counseling but the instructor will not sign off on my licence. She never called me in to take the final drug test or anything.

This may depend on how West Va enters your information into their DMV system and where you got your DUI. But it would be easier if you transfer your license to VA BEFORE you WVa license expires.

The short answer is yes. When you’re convicted of a DUI in Virginia your privilege to operate any “motor vehicle” is suspended. As a result, you are prohibited from operating any vehicle with an engine including a boat.
