What is the name of your state?Illinois
I was on vacation in Florida when I recieved a DUI and found out my license was suspended at the time due to not renewing my vehicle inspection. This happened in April 2003. I hired a lawyer, but fell on financial hardship. The lawyer withdrew from the case. I have now restarted the case the the warrant for failure to appear has been lifted (8/22/05).
I haven't drove since April 2003, but now I have moved to North Carolina and I must drive. My license suspension in Illinois is over since the car has not been registered for two years. My laywer in FL says I can get a lisence in North Carolina until I am convicted (which will be November 2005) sometime. Is this a true statement? Also, is there a way I can verify my bench warrant has been removed from CJIS? I know it's removed from the county it happened in, I just want to make sure it's not on any other computer system.
