heres an old problem i have. i had my first license here in mass and never had an problems.. i moved to nc for a little in jan 07 and TURNED in my mass license in order to obtain a NC license.
in oct 07 i got a dui on my birthday of all days in NC. i paid my fines and attended classes there. i was given one year suspension of license.
i moved back to mass in mar 08 and in july tried to get my nc license back, but was told i had to fix a problem with my mass license, what license??? it was turned in....
so i called the DMV here to see what the problem was.. turns out they say that nc never surrendered my mass license. and so when they got word my nc license was suspended not until july 08 i had to wait a whole year here in mass without any license.
so now that my suspension is over and all my fees were paid in nc, mass rmv says i have to pay a whole bunch of dui fees and suspesions here too. how come?? why are they trying to double bill me for an incident that occurred out of state when i was not even a resident here or still had a license here. is that legal??
they said they fees could be up to $2000 for a first offense, which is ridiculous, cause in nc i only had to pay $250 in fees, and $100 for classes and then another $75.00 to reinstate that license. once i paid that they nc DMV said your mass license is suspended. im clueless as to how this could be. and i probably wont ever drive again because of a stupid mistake i made on my birthday. oh yea i dont even drink, it was a stupid mistake i made for a few hours on one day that turned my whole world around.
