I got a DWI in NH in February 2006. I completed the required program, but was told I needed to do a few more things before being allowed to get my license back. I have lived in Oregon for the past 6 years and would like to get my license here, but DMV is saying I have holds through the state of NH. Do I need to complete the other requirements, or can I attempt to get them dropped since I am no longer a resident of NH?
Call NH DMV, as a few lawyers have mentioned. Do EVERYTHING they tell you to do to get your licensing cleared up. The fact you've geographically moved is unimportant (otherwise, everyone convicted of a DUII could simply move across a state line after treatment and say, "All done!"), except that it may be a probation violation for moving without permission of the court (but then again, it sounds like a pretty old conviction so I'm guessing you're probation term has expired). Call your old NH lawyer (preferable) or NH DMV (next best) to find out what you need to do! And good luck, I hope you enjoy Oregon, it's a wonderful place to live.
