Why is this on here an how can i get if off?
The .04 restriction would appear to be related to a prior DWI conviction. . .without knowing more. BTW, there is an automatic .04 restriction for CDL / Commercial Licenses too, although that would not normally be associated with an end date on the back of the license itself.
The language from the NC Driver's License Handbook reads:
Blood Alcohol Concentration Restrictions
A blood alcohol concentration restriction will be required when a license is restored following a suspension for DWI or when a Limited Driving Privilege is issued following a DWI conviction.
On the first restoration, the alcohol concentration restriction will be 0.04. On a second or subsequent restoration, the alcohol concentration restriction will be 0.00. Additionally, if you are convicted of DWI in a commercial motor vehicle, driving after consuming alcohol or drugs while under the age of 21 or felony death by vehicle, the alcohol concentration restriction will be 0.00.
Furthermore, a conviction of Driving While Impaired with a BAC of 0.15 or more, or another conviction within the past seven years, will require an ignition interlock device to be installed on the vehicle.
If that is indeed the case, there is no way to have that removed as a condition for operation. It is VERY important to comply with the restriction, as failure to do so can result in dire licensing issues and additional criminal charges.
