Circumvention/Tampering

If you are convicted of tampering with your interlock device, your driving privileges will be revoked once the court notifies the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).  Alternatively, if the DMV receives credible information that you circumvented, bypassed, tampered with, or drove a vehicle without an interlock unit, your license may be revoked as well.

 

This revocation is for either one year or the time remaining on your original interlock requirement, whichever is longer.

 

There are no driving privileges that can be granted by the Hearings Division while under this type of action.

 

You may request a hearing, however, if the action is based on a conviction, the only issue at hearing is whether it was correctly reported by the court to the DMV.  If the action is based on a report filed by a law enforcement officer, the Hearing Officer will make a decision based upon the evidence presented.
