What Steps Should I Take To Qualify For Post Conviction DWI Driving Privileges?
The first question we need to ask is do you qualify for a post conviction DWI driving privilege. The answer is maybe. If you are sentenced as an Aggravated Level 1, a Level 1, or a Level 2, you do not qualify for post conviction driving privileges. Otherwise you do, but there may be some stipulations. If the reported breath or blood test was a .15 BAC or higher then you have to have ignition interlock installed and you must wait 45 days after your conviction date to be eligible for this privilege and already have ignition interlock installed in your car.
So, let’s break this up into 2 categories: no ignition interlock and with ignition interlock.
For no ignition interlock, you need the following items: a copy of your DL 123 (less than 30 days old); a copy of your assessment (less than 6 months old) or a certificate of completion for the assessment recommendations; a letter from your employer if you must drive outside the standard hours of Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. For ignition interlock you need all of the above plus a copy of the paperwork showing that ignition interlock has been installed in your vehicle. Remember with interlock you cannot get the privilege until 45 days have passed since your conviction. I hope this video answers your questions about post conviction DWI driving privileges.
