I was capable of getting my license back on august 29th, after more than 2 years without a license, this is my second offense. My question is, on the .gov website about interlock it says if I refuse I only have to have interlock in my device for 1 year. Why do they make everyone do 2 years with it in their cars? I am looking at going to grad school in a year and would like to see if there is any legal way for me to only hold this in my car for 1 year.
All multiple offenders are classified as "Persistent Drunk Drivers" by statute. All "Persistent Drunk Drivers" must obtain interlock for a minimum of 2 years, sr22 for a minimum of 3 years and enroll in and complete alcohol education and therapy classes as a mandatory requirement for driver's license reinstatement. This requirement is mandatory and cannot be bypassed or reduced unless, you become a resident of another state and then submit the appropriate paperwork to reinstate as a non-resident or unless you reinstate in Colorado as a "non-owner".
If you want to drive in Colorado, then you need to meet the mandatory requirements.
