I have relocated from MA and have 2 dui convictions, the most recent from 2005. MA has an interlock program, but didn't participated because I was able to function there without a car. Since I have established CA residency I completed a form for MA acknowledging that I cannot legally drive in MA, in return they have cleared my current record status in MA with a "Z" restriction. In MA, the "Z" restriction is given to drivers who are required to have an interlock device when driving in MA. I have never before had a CA license and neither of my convictions were in CA. Will I need to take the CA classes and install the interlock device in order to drive in CA? I have a certified driving record from MA showing the reinstatement, but I'm concerned the "Z" status will carry over to CA. Will it?My MA license has expired. After relocating to CA, I was able to obtain a CA license (a month ago - passed the test, got an interim license), but I was notified of its suspension a week later because CA learned of my MA convictions.
