Customer: over 10 years ago my boyfriend got charged with DWI in his vehicle. We went to the court house to get a record . They said they have no record. He is trying to get his liscense back but the DMV is telling him he needs to take DWI classes before they can give his liscense back. What should he do legally.
JA: What was the sentence on the DUI charges? Have all appeals been exhausted?
Customer: Suspend liscence and all appeals cancelled
JA: Where is your boyfriend located? DUI laws vary by state.
Customer: Martinsburg,Wv 25419
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm an attorney expert with Just Answer. I have reviewed your initial question and would like to help you resolve your legal issue.  I do have a few questions  for you that should help me provide an answer for you:

1.  When you say that the courthouse said that they have to records, do you mean regarding his criminal case or the status of his license?

2.  Has the DMV recommended how your boyfriend should go about signing up for a DWI class?  Are there any programs that they recommended?

The courthouse would not have any records beyond the DUI conviction, which would then have been sent to the DMV.   That is how they are able to tell your boyfriend about the steps he needs to take to reinstate his license.

I have confirmed that there is a requirement that he take 18 hours of classes, which are administered through your local DMV, as well as a treatment assessment that must be taken at specific locations:

https://transportation.wv.gov/DMV/Drivers/safety_and_treatment/Pages/Information-for-WV-Residents.aspx

There are also a number of places where he can take the driver safety courses, depending on where he lives.  It is also true that the WV DMV does not accept on-line courses unless you can show that you live out of state.   Your local DMV should be able to direct you to DUI courses that they recommend and accept.

Please let me know if this addresses your concerns or if you have any additional questions for me today.
