How to Reinstate Your Driver’s License During a Pandemic

In the last few months are worlds have been turned upside down. Covid -19 has changed the way we deal with life for the foreseeable future.  We have been locked down, shut down, been out of work and scared to death. Health experts have made recommendations that we never thought would occur during our lifetimes. Public safety is always in mind when creating rules such as social distancing, wearing masks and not attending large public events. Driver’s License Restoration during Pandemics Different problems require different solutions. Your solution depends on your problem. Our company has two nationwide criminal defense attorney directories.  Our websites are https://www.DrunkDrivingAttorneys.com  and https://www.DriversLicenseRestorers.com. The attorneys in these directories are experts in DUI, traffic tickets and drug charges. Many of them list all their practice areas so if you need help in another area you can look at their listing to see how you can use their services. Each state has several attorneys to choose from. Many people call several attorneys to find which is the best fit for their problems and to see which attorney fits their financial budget. Who Do I turn to get my License Reinstated? You need to know who has the final determination in getting your driver’s license reinstated. Each state may be different. Finding an expert DUI attorney is the best thing you could possibly do.  You should ask, “Who has the final say in getting my driver’s license reinstated – the state my charges are in or the state where I now live?”  Many people have called our phone at 810-620-6064 to find out how to resolve this type of problem. Example: “Joe” gets his license taken away as the result of a DUI in New Mexico. He gets transferred to a job in Minnesota before he gets his issue resolved. Joe cannot afford to drive or fly back and forth to resolve his issue and a year goes by and he needs to apply for his driver’s license on his birthday.  Joe calls the MVD in New Mexico, but they may not be available as they were before due to Covid –19 problems.  When people seek our help with issues such as this, we refer them to our attorney directories of both states. Most of the time Joe must deal with the state in which the original charge comes from. This is usually the best starting point, but every case is different. Contacting a reputable attorney who has experience in these types of issues is often the turning point to success. Secretary of State or Court? Who Reinstates My License for a DUI? Many times, it depends on the state and your personal charges. Some states give the Secretary of State full reign when it comes to driver’s license restoration. Depending on how many DUI’s you have incurred you may need to go through the Secretary of State rather than the court to get your drivers license reinstated for your drunk driving charges. Do you know the criteria to get your license reinstated? Some states have a policy in which you may have to do the following: Successfully complete a substance abuse programAttend support group meetings (AA, NA) and have your attendance sheet signedComplete a MADD programHave credible people write support letters following a guideline Establish full sustained remission from alcohol/drugs for a minimum of one yearHave a substance abuse evaluation completed by a licensed social worker or therapist Knowing the criteria and adhering to it is crucial to your success. That is why both DrunkDrivingAttorneys.com and DriversLicenseRestorers.com have attorney and treatment center directories for each state. This allows you to be able to find the right DUI experts to be able to help walk you through driver’s license restoration when it entails driving under the influence. If you do have a legitimate problem this is a great way to get your life back on track. If you can make a case to yourself about your addiction, it is always easier for your DUI attorney to be able to make a case to the judge on your behalf. Use these directories to help you find the best resources for your individual needs. https://drunkdrivingattorneys.com/listing/attorney-mathew-l-norwood/

Dummies Guide To Drunk Driving Part 1 – How To Avoid a Drunk Driving Arrest in Michigan

Looking for tips on how to avoid a drunk driving arrest in Michigan? This article may help. These posts are in no way encouraging drunk driving, but just providing a guide to individuals who are not criminals or bad people, but just someone who made a mistake. The first thing any person should do, sober or impaired, is to not give any law enforcement a reason to pull you over. Every driver should regularly check their car’s equipment to make sure it is in proper working order. Make sure your headlights, taillights, and license plate light all work. If one of those items are out, then you are driving around with a target that “screams pull me over.” In Genesee County, the Grand Blanc police regularly pull drivers over for defective equipment. If you have gotten in trouble for defective equipment or any other traffic violation click here for more help. To find out more about Matt Norwood check his profile. Tips on Avoiding a DUI in Michigan Driving a car with expired plates or tabs also puts you at risk of getting stopped by the police. Today’s police cruisers have the technology to read other car plates to alert the officer if the car’s insurance has lapsed, the registration has expired or if the owner of the car’s driver’s license is suspended. Also, I have noticed cars with license plates that cannot be read because of rust, old age, dirt or snow. Yes, Michigan law requires a car’s license plate to be in a clearly legible condition. Keep reading to find out tips on how to avoid a DUI arrest in Michigan. Further, make sure you and your passengers are wearing your seat belts. There are stings every year to look for people not buckling up. Do not have anything hanging from your rear-view mirrors, such as parking passes, air fresheners, or that garter belt you caught from your brother’s wedding in the ’80s. If you still have a garter belt hanging in your car, you have bigger problems than drunk driving. In Michigan, the law says you cannot have an automobile’s front driver and passenger windows tinted. If they are factory-tinted windows, and not aftermarket window tint, the officer can still stop you. You will be able to get out of the window tint ticket, but not your OWI or DUI.  If a windshield is cracked, an officer can stop your car to make sure you can see clearly. Be aware that any visible cracks may set you up for a traffic stop. Similarly, loud mufflers or music may literally shout “pull me over.” If you want everyone to hear your favorite song, just know that you can be pulled over for it. Once a police officer pulls you over, you’re one step closer to an OWI or DUI charge. Contact me if as soon as possible if you need help. If you want personal tips on how to avoid a DUI in Michigan call me at 810-235-4639. Find out more about Matt Norwood, one of the top Flint, MI DUI attorneys. Grand Blanc is notorious for looking for the smallest infraction to pull a vehicle over. Some common civil infractions that they use is touching the centerline, fog line and swerving. This is a great issue to fight because Michigan roads are comparable to Afghanistan, and Michigan law requires a car to stay in its lane as practicably as possible. Speeding, even 1 mph over the limit can be a reason to stop a car. Stopping is a common issue an officer looks for. Make sure your car comes to a complete stop. Once you feel the jerk of your car completely stopping, then you can go. The officers are trained to look at your wheels to see if you are rolling through the stop sign or light. Where you stop can also be an issue. This is a favorite of the Grand Blanc Police, make sure you stop before the actual stop sign, and be aware of not stopping past or on the stop bar if painted on the street or crosswalk. It’s okay to roll up after you have stopped. Be aware Michigan law requires you to come to a complete stop when leaving any driveway. Grand Blanc and Fenton police have been known to sit on bar parking lots.  Finally, turn signals. Use them. Use them when you are turning and use them when you are changing lanes. If you are turning from one street to another, you must turn into the correct lane if it’s a two-lane road. If turning right, you must turn into the lane closest to the right, and if turning left, you must turn into the closest lane to the left.  Contact Attorney Matt Norwood Again, please do not take this as an encouragement to drink and drive. The best way to avoid an OWI or DUI charge is to have a sober designated driver or call a ride-sharing service. But good people make mistakes, and they need someone to help navigate them through the treacherous judicial waters in Genesee County, Grand Blanc, Fenton, and surrounding areas. I am here to help you and to protect your rights and you can reach me anytime at (810) 235-4639 or [email protected] Don’t let who you hire as your attorney be your second mistake.

Delaware DUI Driver’s License Restoration

Delaware DUI Driver’s License Restoration

DUI Restoration Steps {Delaware} Delaware License Restoration is crucial if you value your freedom to drive. Losing your license affects every aspect of your life. If you’ve been arrested for a DUI in Delaware, your license is at risk. Make sure that you don’t lose your driving privilege by enlisting the aid of DUI attorneys immediately after your arrest. Look at the steps below to see what you face for a DUI in Delaware. Delaware has a first offenders program that allows you to get your license restored almost immediately. In this program you waive your right to trial and are admitting to guilt. You have to install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle for one year, and you will be required to go through a treatment program. While this does keep you from being without driving privileges, the DUI stay on your record for five years. It is a good idea to enlist DUI attorneys to help you fight the DUI charge if you do not want to admit guilt. Driving Under the Influence {Delaware} In Delaware, you may be arrested for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) if you are driving, operating, or in actual physical control of a vehicle, an off-highway vehicle, or a moped while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. A chemical test indicating .08% blood alcohol concentration (BAC) or greater, or the presence of any drug, prescription or illegal, substance is sufficient for a DUI conviction. You may be arrested for DUI with a chemical test greater than .05% DUI violations are dealt with under both administrative and court proceedings, which are conducted independently of each other. Juveniles arrested for DUI and processed through Family Court could lose driving privileges until they reach legal drinking age. DUI Implied Consent Delaware has an "implied consent" law. That means if you drive in Delaware and are suspected of DUI, you voluntarily agree to a chemical test to determine the degree of impairment. Failure to take the test carries a penalty of loss of license and/or driving privileges for a period of one year for a 1st offense, 18 months for a 2nd offense and 24 months for the 3rd subsequent offense, in addition to the penalties for DUI. You can see that Delaware license restoration will be very hard if you refuse to decide not to take the proper tests. DUI Administrative Procedures At the time of a DUI arrest, a police officer will take your Delaware driver's license and issue a 15 day temporary license, unless your driver's license has already been suspended or revoked. You must personally request an administrative hearing at DMV within 15 days of your arrest or your driving privilege will be lost for a minimum of 3 months. You may obtain a request for administrative hearing online from our web site or any DMV facility. All DUI sentences are carried on the driving record for a minimum of 5 years. License reinstatement is a process in Delaware. Administrative Hearing Process: You may file a written Request For Administrative Hearing at any DMV facility. The administrative hearing will be held to determine: Probable Cause - whether a police officer had probable cause to believe you were driving, operating, or in actual physical control of a vehicle, while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. Preponderance of the evidence - whether a preponderance of the evidence exists that you were driving, operating, or in actual physical control of a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. A chemical test of .08% or greater of the presence of any drug is conclusive evidence that you were under the influence. Chemical Test Refusal - whether you refused a chemical test after being informed of the revocation penalty for refusing such a test. If you receive an unfavorable ruling at the administrative hearing or fail to request a hearing, your license or driving privilege will be revoked for: 3 months for the first offense 12 months for the second offense 18 months for the third or subsequent offense The penalties for Refused Chemical test are: 12 months for the first offense 18 months for the second offense 24 months for the third or subsequent offense DUI Court Procedures At the time of arraignment, you may elect to apply for enrollment in a First Offense Election program in lieu of standing trial. If you elect to apply, the application will constitute an admission of guilt and a waiver of the right to a speedy trial. You also agree not to request an administrative hearing at the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or to withdraw any request previously made for this violation. The court will notify DMV of your decision. DMV will revoke your license and/or driving privilege for a period of one year for the First Offense Election and any applicable period of revocation for the administrative action of probable cause or refused chemical test. (See penalties listed above) To be considered for a First Offense Election (may only qualify 1 time for FOE) one cannot have: A previous DUI Three or more moving violations within 2 years Caused injury to another person A BAC of .15% or greater Been a suspended or revoked driver or had no valid license at the time of the arrest Been transporting a child under 17 years of age on or within a vehicle while under the influence At the time of your First Offense Election you may request the court to permit you to take the First Offense Election - IID Diversion option. This option allows you the benefit of driving authority after a minimum of 1-month loss of license upon meeting the criteria outlined below. You held a valid Delaware driver's license at the time of your DUI violation You agreed to take the chemical test at the time of your arrest Your revoked Delaware driver's license has been surrendered to the Division of Motor Vehicles for a minimum of 1 month You have completed an alcohol evaluation and are enrolled in the designated alcohol program. Your license is not suspended or revoked for any reason which would prevent the issuance of the IID license Effective February 2, 2015, the IID program became mandatory for all first and subsequent offenders who received a DUI violation on or after February 2, 2015. This mandatory program requires all first time offenders, regardless of BAC, and all subsequent DUI offenders to have the IID installed on a vehicle that is registered in their name or a vehicle that is accessible to them, after serving a minimum mandatory period of revocation. An IID license cannot be issued until the participant has met all minimum qualifications. The IID license authorizes the holder to operate a vehicle that has the IID installed. The IID license is not available for CDL class vehicles or valid for any peripheral endorsements. A Delaware registered vehicle must be used for the Ignition Interlock Device Program. For additional information regarding the IID programs or Ignition Interlock Program application form, please contact the IID Unit at 302-744-2540. Evaluation Process Any individual arrested for DUI must schedule an evaluation with the Delaware Evaluation and Referral Program (DERP). An individual may request an evaluation following their arrest, an evaluation will be ordered by the court, or by DMV. The evaluation costs $100.00. There is a $35.00 missed appointment fee. The evaluation and referral of a DUI offender is an information gathering and analysis process. The client meets individually with an evaluator to construct a personal history, including medical, legal, social, and psychological information. The evaluation takes approximately 1+ hours. The evaluation consists of: A written and verbal evaluation Social history survey Substance abuse questionnaire Several essay questions Mental health symptom screening Client rights/confidentiality issues One on one interview with certified counselor The information obtained from the evaluation along with the evaluators review of the offenders motor vehicle record and blood alcohol test results at the time of the violation, form the basis for analysis and recommendation. DERP will make a referral to one of the following types of programs. Many times getting help for substance use disorders helps your DUI lawyer make a case for you in Delaware license restoration. Offenders must make contact with the agency within 30 days of the referral or risk being non-complied back to the court. Referrals are valid for 1 year.
