Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Below are the penalties which you could be facing, since this happened within a 10 year period of time, from your previous one. You could apply and inquire from the DMV about a hardship, for them to issue you one.
Legal. Real Estate Law. Criminal Law. Family Law. Traffic.
what if i dont get a court date or are they just delayed. dmv has said one year as of april 26th this year suspended
The DMV is different from the courts. As such, you would still have to deal with the DMV and could have requested a hearing, once you received the DUI. If the case does not proceed, you would still have to fulfill the requirements of the DMV and suspension.
