I received a permanent revocation in NYS for previous dwi convictions. I upheld my end of the sentence and now NY has new regulations in place that won’t approve me for relicenceing. I have heard Colorado will issue me a license if I relocate. Is this true?
Yes, there is a path to a Colorado license.
Yes, the reinstatement process is the same and may require an interlock for any type of DUI, not just alcohol.
Yes, you can get a Colorado license despite the seriousness of your DUI charge in another state, including reckless manslaughter.
No, you should not. Your BAC was only .043. The officer is only allowed to start the revocation process at .08.
We require half of our fee up front at $600 and the balance of $600 10 days before the DMV appointment.
Colorado would require a 2-year interlock and the license would be restricted to driving interlock-enabled vehicles only. Any documented use of alcohol while driving would cause a problem obviously with the license. It’s an advantage to have completed treatment. Colorado law would not mandate the same challenges as Minnesota. This is about as inexpensive and expedited a process as you will find anywhere.
Your felonies aren’t applicable in Colorado. Not having treatment documentation may necessitate taking alcohol classes. You are definitely eligible for a license hearing. A license would require at least a 2-year interlock
The number of alcohol-related incidents isn’t relevant. Having been in rehab is a positive. Unlike New York, Colorado doesn’t have a provision for a lifetime revocation.
Yes, you should prepare as much in advance as possible to be ready to schedule a hearing at the year anniversary of your revocation.
You must pay your ticket before a license can be issued.
