I was convicted of dwi first offense in January 2005. My license was revoked for one year but I never obtained an ignition interlock in order to have my license reinstated and it's been revoked ever since. It's been more than 9 years and I have not been convicted of another dwi/dui since. Am I able to just reinstate my license like normal since it's been so long? Thanks
No. The revocation period is a "floating" time period. It will only start when you 1) have an ignition interlock...

Had a 1st offense DUI in PA back in 2007. Accepted into and completed ARD, (Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition), program where the charges are dismissed without a "conviction" or admission of guilt. Arrest record is expunged and only record of violation is on PENNDOT records for enhancing a later DUI charge. There was NO CONVICTION. Moved to NM. MVD said only eligible for interlock license under statute 66-5-5e. It states "(person) who was CONVICTED on or after June 17, 2005 of driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs pursuant to the laws or ordinances of any other state". I plan to challenge the NM MVD because I was NOT convicted of DUI under PA state law. Penndot will send a letter stating that there was NO conviction. Thoughts?
I think.... That it will cost you more money, heartache and misery to fight this than it would be just to get the IID.
