I received a Wet and Reckless in 2001 and a DUI in 2009. Since the time a DUI stays on one's record increased from 7 to 10 years, both charges are now showing on my record and I am unable to apply for a restricted license until 1 year has passed. My mandatory 30 days of suspension has passed, I've enrolled in a DUI program, an SR-22 has been filed by my insurance company, and the $125 re-issue fee has been paid. I live over 25 miles away from the city that I work 5 days a week to support my family and there is no public transportation, no one to carpool with and my wife works earlier hours so she can't drive me. Mandatory Actions Unit has advised that there are no exceptions to receiving a restricted license until the 1 year suspension has passed... is this true or do I have options?
