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 My license was revoked for one year but I never obtained an ignition interlock in order to have my license reinstated and it's been revoked ever since.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 installed on your vehicle AND 2) get an interlock license.
contact dmv to see what you need to do to get your license reinstated. Generally, for dmv requirements, there is no statute of limitations.
