I had a D U I in Las Vegas and after completing all court ordered requirements it was reduced to RECKLESS DRIVING. I am getting ready to apply for a concealed weapons permit but one cannot be issued if you were convicted of a DUI within the last five years. Since it was amended to reckless driving will this affect my obtaining the permit.
Your SCOPE (Shared Computer Operations for Protection and Enforcement), or criminal history will show an arrest for DUI, but will also have an entry for the amended charge of reckless driving. As far as your motor vehicle report is concerned, you will have an entry for reckless driving - an 8 point violation. Ask the DMV if you can do traffic school through them to reduce the points down to 4, that way you don't get raked over the coals when your insurance policy renews.
