A: There are two bases to lose your driving privilege: first, if you refuse the breath test or test above the legal limit; second, upon conviction and assessment of points. Under the first scenario you can get the ignition interlock and still drive. Under the second, you may get revoked for up to 18 months, but may still be able to obtain a modification to an ignition interlock. However, you may also lose your license to the Medical Unit as an habitual alcohol or substance abuser. If that happens then you’ll have to clear a lot of hurdles first before you can even apply for a license again. See a lawyer and go over the details of your situation.
