at the time I was a new resident to South Carolina and still possessed A Montana Drivers License. I live in Murrells Inlet and the closest ADSAP is in Georgetown. without a driver's license I did not have a ride nor did I have the finances to complete. also is it legal that they can force me to have to go to just this one establishment for adsap even though it's not a government agency? why can I not pay a private counselor for an assessment?
Because likely, the law states you have to have a specific program.
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.
ADSAP is a government program. Consult a lawyer and see what their advice is on your specific case. Probably going to need to complete ADSAP and pay the reinstatement fees though.
If the program has been court ordered, then most likely you will have to complete. You should not only consult a local lawyer, but you should call your local DMV. Often time the DMV has the best info.
