My husband beat his criminal DUI charge but has another 9 mos with the BAIID device installed in Illinois. (Ridiculous).
We are trying to move to CO.
Is there any way to legally do this—cooperative DMVS (lol), an appeal, anything? I know he has 30 days to switch his license over once we move.
Most states will not issue a license if there is an open suspension in another state. You would be best served if you were able to convince the prosecutor to drop the suspension but that is unlikely because you probably had a package deal where the DUI was dropped and you ate the suspension. Short of that any relief would be up to Colorado and that’s who you should be addressing your query to
I think your question would be best answered by an attorney in Colorado, My gut says you will not be able to get a license in that state because there is most likely some reciprocal agreement between the states.
It depends on Colorado law. Your husband's suspension is limited to Illinois. Whether Colorado recognizes the suspension is a question you would have to ask a Colorado attorney or call the Colorado secretary of state's office. Law Offices of Theodore Gailan
