Plantation, FL |
in Florida, (Ft Lauderdale, Plantation area. Don't know how to get enrolled there. Or is it better for me to stay in PA to complete my ARD classes here. No one seems to give me a concise answer. This was 1rst offense. Please help. Thank you
By and large, because ARD is not a conviction it is not generally transferred across state lines. Furthermore, the Alcohol Highway Safety School (AHSS) is a very specific class created and implemented according to PA Dept. of Transportation regulations. I do not believe that a class administered in Florida will count as AHSS up here.
However, as the other attorney noted, he best thing to do is call the probation department and ask if they will allow it. Worst that they will say is no.
