Got convicted of 2 DUIs within 2 years. License was revoked for 4 years with chance for DMV hearing after 2. It has been 2 years now and hearing is scheduled. If they reinstate my license will they make it conditional to having an interlock system or is there a chance I will get it back without that?
Yes, you will have the requirement of interlock with two DWIs within 2 years. It will be a requirement through DMV. Monitech and Smart Start are the two companies who control the interlock. Smart Start is a newer company but will be cheaper than Monitech. You may want to speak to an attorney to have with you for the DMV hearing. Best of luck!

Chances are, yes. . .although it can be a complicated process. It would not be unusual to have the conditional restoration predicated on an Ignition Interlock Device. It MIGHT also be helpful to consider SCRAM options.
License restoration hearings are complicated and carry long term consequences. We regularly get calls from people whom tried to handle the hearing by themselves and ended up with bigger problems.
Call an attorney with substantial experience handling DMV DWI Restoration Hearings. In many instances the consultation would be free.
