I was adjudicating for an misdemeanor driving with a suspended license
No, the law currently requires that adjudication have been withheld, or that charges were either not filed or later dismissed, in order to obtain a records sealing or expungement. You may be able to get relief from the adjudication through a post-conviction motion.
You cannot seal a conviction. You may only seal a withhold of adjudication on certain offenses.
If you were adjudicated (convicted) then not only can you not seal / expunge that case but you are now disqualified from sealing / expunging any case for the rest of your life.
You may want to hire a lawyer to try to set aside the conviction.
I do not know if there is a legal basis to do so or not but if there is then whatever it costs it will be well worth it to not be a convicted criminal (even for DWLS).
Wishing you luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
