What a DWI/DUI Does to Your New Mexico Driver’s License

Criminal Legal Help for Ignition Interlock Licenses

If you blew above a 0.08% BAC in the breathalyzer, New Mexico state law may require you to install an ignition interlock on your car. When an ignition interlock is installed in your vehicle, you are required to obtain an Ignition Interlock License in order to remain a legal driver.

At the Law Office of Mark Keller, we provide comprehensive legal guidance from the moment you are arrested until the resolution of your case. We aggressively protect your right to drive every step of the way, helping you obtain your ignition interlock license so you can continue to drive while we work on your case.

Legal Advice for Your Ignition Interlock

If you have been arrested for a DWI/DUI, it is beneficial to install your interlock device on your car as soon as possible. While you may not be convicted, a proactive installation of the interlock means that a potential term will be over sooner rather than later and may reflect positively with the judge.

Driving on a Suspended License

An ignition interlock license mandates that the offender must only drive the car in which the interlock is installed. If you are arrested for driving on a revoked license or suspended license after a DWI/DUI, you may endure additional penalties, including:

  • An additional year on your ignition interlock license
  • 7 days of mandatory jail time
  • Up to $1,000 in fines
  • Vehicle seizure or immobilization
