Q: How to have Drivers License reinstated if court ordered to have IID installed but do not own a vehicle.

In 2017 I refused a chemical test in Louisiana (caddo Parish), in order to have my driver's license reinstated it is instructing me to have a IID installed. Currently I do not own a vehicle or have access to one. Copied below is OMV requirements:

YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE IS SUSPENDED BECAUSE OUR RECORDS SHOW YOU RECEIVED

TICKET NUMBER 170416C002 ON 04/16/2017 FOR

REFUSING TO A CHEMICAL TEST .

YOU MUST SUBMIT PROOF OF SR22 INSURANCE WRITTEN BY A COMPANY APPROVED TO

WRITE INSURANCE IN LOUISIANA, PROOF AN INTERLOCK IS INSTALLED WITH A COMPANY

APPROVED IN LOUISIANA, AND A REINSTATEMENT FEE OF $50.00 IN ORDER TO

REINSTATE THIS SUSPENSION.

A: First, what were you driving in 2017? If it was a car that you have sold or was totalled, then send proof of that to DMV with a cover letter that you no longer own the vehicle.

Second, if it was someone else's vehicle, then get a portable intoxilizer and send proof of that with a cover letter to DMV.

Third, if you no longer own a vehicle or have access to one, then get a state ID.
