Sorry to hear about your troubles. DUIs are a CASH COW for every county/city. Make sure you have an official permit from the court though before driving (at least with a clear conscious...)
Sure! You can drive all you want until you get caught again. Then you'll probably spend a few nights in jail. Remember to sleep on your back with your mouth closed.
If the paper states an expiration date, it IS NOT VALID after that date.
If you HAVE an attorney to appeal anything, you SHOULD have asked them this question BEFORE the paper expired.
Your answer is in what you wrote. You know that filing an appeal was a request to reduce the suspension. That request has yet to be ruled upon. If you are currently driving, you are driving without a license.
ask your attorney -- he or she gets paid to explain this to you.
where this is happening, which we don't know, may make a big difference
You failed to indicate you are state, and I don't know what this "piece of paper" is, but I know of no states that allow driving on a suspended license, period. If there is anyone that can tell you your driving status, it would be your attorney.
I would say no but since you have an attorney, why aren't you asking them?
Legally speaking, no you're not.
I think the answer is no, but you should ask your lawyer.
You should know if you can drive or not, and not depend on Yahoo to tell you that.
