    Answered . Honestly, you need an attorney. If you testify you will be subject to cross examination and your testimony could be used against you in the DUI trial. You might be better off just getting the BAIID.

    Answered . I agree with the other attorneys however if you insist on handling this matter by yourself I would advise that you read the summary suspension statute and go to your local law library and read treatises about some resuspension law including the IICLE book on DUI law.

    Answered . You may try a google search to find answers on procedure; however, an attorney is who you really should get your information from, even if it's just a free consultation, which many attorney's do. But, I would recommend you finding a local attorney who can personally review your materials with you, rather than relying on one here. This may be a good starting place, but a local attorney will have more insight and be in a better position to help you.
