Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Please be patient while I research and compose a reply for you.
Unfortunately, if the company you took the classes through will not give you/no longer has a copy of the certificate you earned 5 years ago, and your friend is not giving you access to the storage room where you believe your certificate might be, you've already been informed correctly. The easiest and least expensive way to solve your problem is to simply take the DUI classes again and move on with your life. It would take you at least just as long and cost you more money to go after your friend legally for access to his storeroom. And you're not going to be able to get something that your old instructor simply no longer has, no matter how many more years you try.
Take the classes and get your license. Then you can consult with a local civil lawyer to see if you have any kind of a viable case against those who would not help you to recover for the cost of the classes.
Just checking in to see if you need more help or any clarification of my answer. If so, please reply here on this question thread.
