  • Ok, i was convicted of a dui got put on probation, then got another can i get a work permit.

    what actions do i need to take to get my license? or permit?

    Cory’s Answer

    Assuming this is a second DUI in 5 years, then you would not immediately be eligible for a limited permit. Putting aside any potential Administrative License Suspension (ALS) suspension issues, you would not be eligible for a limited permit for at least 120 days. You would only be eligible for a permit after a 120 day hard suspension IF a judge was willing to sign an order and IF you had completed an alcohol and drug evaluation and were engaged in alcohol/drug treatment. If the judge would not sign the order, then you would face a one year hard suspension with no limited permit followed by a six month limited permit eligible suspension with installation of ignition interlock device, followed by eligibility for reinstatement after a period of 18 months.

    From your posting it is unclear what type of caase you are referring to. From a criminal law standpoint, you should consult with a lawyer about the possibility of criminal charges against you. You may have liability for aggravated assault. This is a serious felony. Conviction for this type of charge could have very unfortunate consequences. You may have defenses including an affirmative defense of self defense. Before speaking to the police, you may want to consult an attorney.

    You should definitely go to court. Font just pay the ticket. If in Municipal Court of Atlanta then ask for PTIT traffic which will cost you less and will result in a dismissal of the charges. If you are in Fulton County then ask to speak to the solicitor and ask for a basic rules violation instead of the moving violation.

  • How can i get my name removed from the national drivers registry??

    i have a court order that restores my driving privileges but my name is still on this list and i cannot get a drivers license. it is a very long and complicated story but i really need some advice.

    Cory’s Answer

    Once you are listed on the registry, only the state that placed you on there can remove the record. You need to call the DMV in that State and see what their process is (if any) for removal of these types of records.

  • I got a ticket for expired lisence. It is actually not. It says so on the ticket. But i missed the court date. what can i do?

    I got the ticket in Dekalb county, in Georgia. My lisence will actually not exprire until 2016, and it says so on my ticket. Is there anything that i can do to get away from a $910 fine even though i did miss the court date?

    Cory’s Answer

    the case is likely in recorder's court. Call the Dekalb Recorder's Court and see what you need to do about pulling the case out of failure to appear / bond forefeiture status. Getting the case back on a calendar is crucial. Once this is accomplished, speak to the Prosecutor on the court date and show them proof of the expiration and see if they will dismiss the charge.

  • I am in the military at ranger selection stationed at fort benning and I got pulled over in Harris county on the highway

    I have had no speeding tickets before, I am from MONTANA and an currently 19 years old turning 20 on July,26 I was going 103 in a 70 what should I do when I go to court???

    Cory’s Answer

    You should speak to a qualified attorney in Harris County about your options and have a great explanation ready for why you were go so fast. In this type of case, it is critical to try to negotiate the speed down to something substantially less than the 103 speed you were written. Accomplishing this makes the infraction look better to the military, may bring you out of the superspeeder category , and will also help your car insurance rates.

    Cory’s Answer

    You will need to comply with DDS requirements to get your license back. Assuming it has been five years since the conviction, you should be able to get your license back (assuming you are otherwise eligible) by showing proof you have completed the GA risk Reduction school and by paying the reinstatement fee. Because you sat out the whole five years you should not have to put an ignition interlock on your car, but you may bead to get a financial hardship order if DDS seeks to require this.

    Cory’s Answer

    A driver making a left turn has an absolute duty to yield to all other traffic on the roadway. In this case, I would go to court and see if the prosecutor will help you out and maybe amend the Ticket to a no points charge like basic rules 40-6-180. In the alternative, you may want to plead nolo contendere to save points being assessed by DDS to your license and to not admit fault for civil purposes.

    You can look up and call the ga DDS in Conyers. Speak to someone in the revoked license section. They can confirm your eligibility for a limited license. If the DDS doesn't give you the answer you are looking for, then go see Bob Daniel
