Richardson, TX asked in DUI / DWI for Louisiana

Q: If you choose to not drive instead of using an interlock device how long before you can drive again in Louisiana.

I received article 894 from a dui I received in 2015. While I was doing community service to pay my fine , it came up that I owed around $100 from an old dui in like 2002. I paid the fine in 2015 so it’s showing that I had a current dui even though it was 894. I couldn’t and can’t afford an interlock. It’s been over 5 years. How long do I have to wait to be able to reinstate my liscence without using an interlock system?

A: Your attorney has to file Motion to use that 894. It does not happen automatically. The 894 has nothing to do with the interlock.
