When you're convicted of driving under the influence (DUI), one of the penalties you'll face involves having your license revoked for a certain period of time. As you can imagine, this can be a huge inconvenience for people who don't have access to public transportation and need to be able to use a car to get to work, pick up their children from school or complete other necessary tasks throughout the day.
With this in mind, many folks who have lost their driving privileges as a result of a DUI may wonder if there's anything they can do to get their license back sooner. Fortunately, there is. According to Colorado.gov, there are certain scenarios in which people can regain their driving privileges early by agreeing to participate in an Ignition Interlock program.
In order to be eligible, you must meet a certain set of requirements. These
include the following:
• You are currently a resident of Colorado
• You have satisfied all other reinstatement requirements
• You were 21 years of age or older at the time of the violation.
