Eligibility question...

#1

Post by LaRue32 » Sun May 06, 2012 8:24 pm

Hello everyone. I am new to the forum and in need of assistance. On 06/09/2005 I was arrested for "DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED", I was placed on 2 years probation and 24 hours of comunity service. I had to attended alcohol abuse classes, I recieved a certificte for completion of the class. My question is: Do I have to disclose this class?

You don't have to disclose the class but you do have to disclose the arrest and the disposition of the charges.

...prolly your "end-of-probation" date...I think they go by how long since you finished punishment/parole, not the date of arrest...

...I thought wrong...GC411.172(a) (8)" has not, in the five years preceeding the date of application, been convicted of a classA or Class B misdemeanor..."


...thanks, Boss!!!

The 5 year exclusionary period begins on the date you were "convicted" or given deferred adjudication, not when probation is over.

If your conviction date was 11/16/2005, you were eligible on 11/16/2010 - 5 years after the date of conviction.

Did you have a previous license that was suspended or revoked?

No, but the person I talked to sounded pretty confident that it was 7 years, not 5.

I believe they were confused and quoteing the revocaiton. GC §411.172 says 5 years prior to the date of applicaiton. http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/administra ... chlaws.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

That is absolutely bogus. If you have never applied before, you have never been revoked, it is 5 years from the date of conviction. Period. End of story.

See the post above for our own moderator Crossfire. She is a top notch instructor and teaches classes at Cabela's in Fort Worth. The classes are very informative and fun. And one of their range safety officers is an extremely intelligent and good looking, strapping hunk of a guy (if I say so myself)
