Q: I received a D.U.I. approximately 8 years ago in Virginia, i paid all my fines, but was required to attend VASAP
I was also told I'd have to have a breathalyzer installed in my vehicle for at least 6 months. Last year or so I asked for a transcript of my charges to ask the D.M.V. what I need to to start getting my licenses reinstated. Since the breathalyzer wasn't present on my transcript would I still have to do that to have licenses reinstated or is it waived?
A: In classic legal form the answer is it depends. If the court didn’t order you to have the interlock in your vehicle and you simply walked without driving during your suspension time you may be able to simply finish the ASAP course and pay your reinstatement fee to get your license back.
Brian M. Latuga and Shemeka C Hankins agree with this answer
A: I agree with my colleague's answer that it depends. However, for most convictions the ignition interlock is a requirement of ASAP because its a requirement of your conviction. You should check your court paperwork. If its there, ASAP may requirement it even though a lengthy time has passed. Good Luck.
