A: In Texas, on a first-time DWI, you may generally have the interlock removed from your vehicle after half-time. At our firm, we regularly file motions for early removal of interlock. Conditions of probation are at the discretion of the judge so it's important to talk to a local attorney who knows what the judge in your jurisdiction will do.

A: You are eligible to have the interlock removed once you have completed 1/2 of your probation time. It is at the discretion of the judge. Generally the only ways that you have an interlock on your vehicle is 1. under age 2. scored over 0.15 3. 2nd DWI or 4. Felony DWI related offense. Your chances of removal will vary with the facts of your case.
