Last year while living in CA, I got a DUI and totaled my car. A year later, I started my classes but stopped going and never got reinstated. I have recently moved to Reno, NV and was wondering about how to get my program transferred. Also, in NV, would I be eligible for a restricted license if I had an SR22 and was enrolled in classes?
Your question may have nothing to do with getting your classes transferred but rather do you have to do them in California in the first place. I recommend that you call your CA lawyer and ask him if you should complete the same level of classes here in Nevada and inquire if the CA court will accept this. Most courts in differing jurisdictions would. California is always a different beast. If you are not in good standing in CA then you will not be able to get a license in NV.
You likely have a warrant and a probation violation. Hire an attorney to recall the warrant and ask for the alcohol program online and then that would allow you to do it in other state.
You won't be eligible for a restricted license. For that, you have to clear up any warrants in CA, then file a 1650 once you're eligible. For a first DUI, that's 6 months from the date of conviction. For a second DUI, it's 2 years from the date of conviction, you can file a 1650/.
You'll have to call DMV mandatory actions at 916 657 6525 to file the 1650. (After the warrant is cleared)
I am licensed attorney who focuses on Serious DUI Cases such a 2nd DUIs, 3rd DUIs, 4th DUIs, and Felony DUIs and DMV hearings. I also have much experience handling car accident cases. Although the information I provide is helpful, it is not legal advice. Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers. Do NOT include any direct solicitations or contact information.
