What is the difference between a DD Form 1408 (Armed Forces Traffic Ticket-Pink) and DD Form 1805 (United States District Court Violation Notice-Yellow)?
If you are issued a DD Form 1408, you are required to appear before the Base Magistrate in order to have the ticket adjudicated; however, if you are issued a DD Form 1805, you are required to appear before the Federal Magistrate in order to have the ticket adjudicated. Note:  If you are cited for a Traffic violation and it is noted that you are within 30 days of your EAS, you may be issued a DD Form 1805.

How will an Off-base DUI affect my ability to operate a vehicle aboard the Base?
Per MCO 5110, “the immediate suspension of installation driving privileges is authorized for Active Duty military personnel, family members, retired members, and DoD personnel pending the resolution/adjudication of an intoxicated driving incident regardless of the geographical location of the intoxicated driving incident.”

If I am cited for a DUI, or any other offense which may result in suspension of my driving privileges, may I bring my completed request for “Limited Driving” to my Traffic Court Hearing?
No.  Based upon the specific traffic offense for which you were cited, there will be a mandatory “minimum suspension period” that will dictate when you are eligible to apply for Limited Driving.
