Do I need to get a lawyer, or will it be cheaper to take the DUI?
I recently got a DUI, I am under 21 years old and had a beer and a sip of a mixed drink at a club. Two hours later I drove a friend home who had too much to drink, and got pulled over for failure to dim brights. I didn't refuse anything and cooperated with it all and got taken to the station for a breathalyzer, I blew a .116 which was a lot higher than I thought. I had taken NyQuil that night from a cold and didn't know it had that effect. But I didn't know it had an effect till the next day so I couldn't tell the officer about it.

I have a dwai. My alcohol lvl was .195 Can i have a lawyer request to retest my alcohol lvl and if it were to go down would that change my blood lvl according to the dmv?

I have had interlock for 6 months now. Im planning to move to nevada. I dont plan on moving back to colorado. Can i surrender my license in colorado having them "red line" my licence in their state. And release my right to obtain a license in any other state? And if i chose to move back to colorado then i would have to get interlock again to drive in their state.
No. The Driver's License Compact means that the states will share your information and your restriction will continue...
What is the statute of limitations in Colorado for a DUI? Can the Dept of Motor Vehicles take my license if I was never cited?
Never was cited for a DUI I should have received in Colorado on 10 October 2014. There was an accident.
Not sure what you mean by "should have received." You might check both with the DMV and the court of the jurisdiction...
How do I reinstate license after an under 21 DWAI conviction if I don't own a car to install interlock on?
I was convicted of an under 21 DWAI in Colorado in January of 2015(Marijuana related). It has been a little over a year since my conviction and I am eligible to reinstate my license in a couple of months. I did refuse a chemical blood test so I am required to have an ignition interlock installed in my vehicle for two years. I do not own a car at this time, it was sold shortly after my conviction. My problem is that I will most likely need to get a loan to purchase a new vehicle, and the car dealer probably wont give me any kind of loan without a license because an unlicensed driver cannot be insured. This puts me in quite a predicament because as far as I know I will need to have the interlock installed in my vehicle in order to get a license. I am not 100% sure on how reinstatement works and am curious if there is any way the DMV will issue me a drivers license without an interlock installed (because I don't own a vehicle), but with some agreement to have it installed once a vehicle has been purchased. Thank you for any insight that anyone has to offer.
You can complete an Affidavit of Non-Ownership to get your license and then purchase the vehicle. Contact my office...

In colorado when doing a blood test for a DUI do they always test for drugs? And is it a felony?
I have not had anything on my record before this is my first DUI.
It is up to the requesting police officer to tell the lab whether to test for alcohol alone or alcohol and other drugs....
