Legal Question

Asked on: 6/03/13, 5:27 pm

I received a DUI in Florida in May 2012, and a conviction in January 2013. I live in Florida and at the time of the DUI I had lived in the state of Florida for two years but possessed a valid Virginia drivers license, (I was enrolled in a Florida College). My Virginia drivers license was surrendered to the DMV in Florida and I have paid for a Florida identification card. I went to the Florida DMV to get a Florida hardship license which in Florida I am legal to have, however the Florida DMV informed me that they could not issue the license due to Virginia revoking my driving privileges. In addition to lifting the revocation, Virginia is claiming I must provide copies of the classes and their content that were taken in Florida and they want me to provide proof of FR 44 insurance and pay $220.00 dollar re-instatement fee, however I live in Florida and do not wish to have a Virginia drivers license. I can't get car insurance without a valid drivers license. Is it legal for Virginia to require a punishment when I've already fulfilled or am fulfilling all of the requirements in the state of Florida?
