Fort Collins Ignition Interlock Device Lawyer

EFFECTIVE CRIMINAL DEFENSE STRATEGIES
Colorado laws allow certain individuals with a revoked driver’s license to apply for an Interlock License. With an Interlock License, one can operate a vehicle, anywhere, at any time, as long as you comply with the Interlock License requirements.

There are serious penalties for circumventing an interlock devise or operating a vehicle without an ignition interlock device while on an Interlock License. If charged with either offense take action to protect your rights. Call 970-404-8884 or contact me by email, David H. Johnson, a Fort Collins ignition interlock device lawyer, for a free consultation.

Who is Eligible for an Interlock Device?

In Colorado, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is the agency that determines whether a driver is required to have an ignition interlock device on their automobile. The court does not typically get involved with the requirement, but at times will require an ignition interlock device as a condition for probation.

On your first express consent revocation with a BAC less than .150, your driver’s license will be revoked for nine months. After serving one month of this revocation, it is possible to obtain an Interlock License with an ignition interlock installed on your vehicle for the remainder of the revocation period. The Department of Motor Vehicles does provide incentives for drivers who make it four straight months without an issue on the Interlock License. There is a procedure to have the interlock device removed after the four-month period.

On subsequent express consent revocations, or a revocation with a BAC of .150 or above, your driver’s license will be revoked for one year. After serving one month of this revocation, it is possible to obtain an Interlock License with an ignition interlock installed on your vehicle. You will be required to comply with the conditions of the Interlock License for two years.

If your express consent revocation is based on a refusal, your driver’s license will be revoked for one year. After serving two months of this revocation, it is possible to obtain an Interlock License with an ignition interlock installed on your vehicle. You will be required to comply with the conditions of the Interlock License for two years.

Ignition Interlock Hearing Help

The Colorado DMV will require you to have an ignition interlock device for two years if you have multiple express consent revocations during your life. If you fail the device’s tests, you may also be required to have an interlock on your vehicle for an extended period of time. You will receive a notice from the DMV indicating that you need to appear for a hearing if you have a lockout in three of twelve months.

I am experienced at representing clients throughout the interlock hearing process. I will provide you with aggressive representation throughout your case if you have failed the interlock test too many times.
