Who really knows?
DUI Screening, Revocation Evaluation, 16, 20 or 36 hours? We have a lot of clients who call looking for some direction to get back on the road legally. Most of the time the resolution is pretty straight forward. The DUI is relatively new so a DUI Screening and the recommended treatment either 16 Hours of DUI Education or 36 Hours of DUI Treatment will satisfy the MVD and Court requirements. However, when the DUI is a few years old, life has happened and time has passed the situation is not so but and dry.
We ask because we care.
When we first speak with the client, we will always ask some qualifying questions. The questions will help us understand their particular situation and get a greater sense of their circumstances. By correctly qualifying the client, we ensure Arizona DUI Services is doing what is their best interest. We do a decent job trying to understand a clients situation but truthfully without seeing their motor vehicle record (MVR) we can never be 100% certain the advice we are offering is going to completely satisfy the MVD’s compliance activities. For our clients who are in doubt of what actions are required to have their driver license reinstated. There are two ways they can get the knowledge they need to move forward with confidence.
Two ways one answer.
- The first way is to call the MVD and speak to a level 2 customer service representative (CSR). The drawback with calling the MVD is the consistency of the information the CSR gives to the client. It is not uncommon for the same client to get different information from separate CSR’s. This can only add to the frustration of the situation. At this point in time the client is either ready to quit or pick up some boxing lessons to vent.
- Then there is option number two. The client can go to azmvdnow.gov and create an account. Once the account is created the client can pay $5 for their extended MVR. The extended MVR will have all of the violations on the driving record as well as the compliance activities needed to resolve the violation. The extended MVR is also useful when the client needs the DUI violation date which is required for reporting completed Screenings, DUI Education or DUI Treatment. It is important that the client purchases the extended MVR because that is the MVR with the compliance activities. The certified MVR’s will not have the compliance activities listed leaving the client with $3 less in their bank account and still trying to figure out how to get their license back.
