My license was suspended and I have never gotten them back. Can you advise?
answered on Dec 28, 2022

answered on Jan 31, 2023
You should take care of your DUI cases by hiring a lawyer or by taking care of them yourself by redocketing (less advisable).

I think you may have already asked this question. The general answer is probably. They do not typically have law enforcement to arrest you at the driver license office.

Not sufficient alone for a dismissal. Plus, you are likely identifiable on the dash cam or bodycam.
