I got a 3rd DUI in California 5 years ago in 2007. Served 240 days in jail. Fines and 18 month DUI programed were waived, so I was not required by the court to complete these. I am no longer on probation and the 3 year suspension is long over with. I AM required by the DMV to complete the 18 month DUI classes, which is fine.... but given the fact that I cannot drive, it is not possible for me to reliably get to these classes. I have read that after 5 years from the last DUI that I can have my license re-instated if I: Get an IID installed, proof of enrollment in the DUI classes, and proof of insurance. The DMV told me though that since my DUI's were before the new laws that it does not apply to me, and I still have to do at least 1 year of classes. That does not seem right? What do I do?Update: Called the DMV in Sacramento, they still say that I have to do at least 12 months of the classes before I become eligible for the IID. If I got my 3rd DUI this year, I would be able to get an IID. :/
