What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? NC
I got a .22 DWI in Nov 2008 and had the Monitech Interlock device installed on my car in May 2009 when I got "limited driving priveleges", meaning I can only drive my car with the breathalyzer and during curfew hours (6am-8pm M-F; 8am-8pm S,S).
1) I am required to have it on my car for 1 year before I can get my license back (which would be in May 2010). My question is, can I move out of state with this car still using the breathalyzer and driving during those hours and then drive back to NC in February and again in May for the device calibrations (with May being the removal of the unit)?
2) Now, what if I do a change of address with the post office so my mail gets forwarded to me in my new state (living with family but name not on any documents or anything as to that state being my "residence")? From what I've heard government mail does NOT get forwarded but returned to sender. I have no idea if I'll get any mail from the DMV during this time but could this be an issue? Is there a law saying I can't live in another state while I have this device so long as I adhere to the rules of it? If not, then do I just notify NC of my plans?
3) Also, I am not going to apply for another license in the state I'm moving to until I get NC's reinstated just to be safe! So last question...any idea how long it takes from removal of the unit to get license back from DMV...can I just go from the interlock office with their paperwork and go right to DMV and get my license?
Soo much to figure out. Please help!!!! Thank you all!
