What is West Virginia's “Test and Lock Program”?

If it is your first DUI conviction, you can participate in the “Test and Lock Program” under West Virginia law, but you are not required to do so. After your license has been suspended for a period of 15 days due to your DUI conviction, you can drive so long as your vehicle has an ignition interlock device installed for the following 120 days. Participation in the “Test and Lock Program” is mandatory for repeat DUI offenders, for a minimum period of two years. For every DUI conviction within a ten-year period, a period of one year is added to the minimum two-year ignition interlock device period. 

The information on this page is meant to provide a general overview of the law. The laws in your state and/or city may deviate significantly from those described here. If you have specific questions related to your situation you should speak with a local attorney.
