Can ignition interlock be installed on a motorcycle if it's my only means of transportation?
The court never ordered me to stay away from motorcycles, I received my license back after 6 month suspension, I was going to wait 6 months for my ignition interlock order to expire but probation says my interlock requirement period does not start untill i have a vehicle with an interlock registered in my name.
Yes it can. IID's are made for motorcycles as well as cars. A motorcycle is a motor vehicle for purposes of the...

I am eligible for a hearing to get my driver license back I live in New York now so they are sending me my papers so i do not have to go to NC. I completed my DWI assement classes when i got my second dwi (2009).

Just want to see what I need to prepare for my hearing papers and what to look forward to.
This is a question for NC DWI attorneys. You will need to have your license restored in NC before applying for a NY license.

You'll need to ask on a PA forum. The state where the case happened will control
What does it mean when you have a conference with a supervisor for DWI?
Hello, I was charged with a DWI a few months back in Suffolk County NY. It is my first offense, no priors. My attorney, through a conference was able to get a deal where I can get community service, victim impact panel, drinking driver program and breathalyzer in the car for a year. After the year reduction to DWI once I comply with terms and conditions. I asked my attorney what happens next court date because I haven't plead yet. I was told, "We will meet with supervisor morning of court." What does this mean? What does a Supervisor do for this? What does my lawyer mean, exactly when they imply we are meeting with a supervisor the morning of court? I'm just curious, also, if they were able to reach this deal and although not signed yet, if they told me this is what I'm getting is it likely what I'll be getting?
You have an attorney. That's who you ask.
What happens when pulled over in parking lot of autoshop that was installing IID and I was driving by myself?
I was sentenced to a conditional discharge for a DWI, and within 10 days of sentencing I had to install an IID. I drove myself to my appointment not knowing this was illegal (thought I had 10 days to install, court and lawyer never said I could not drive to the appointment, had I known I would not have driven) and there was an officer sitting in a car right outside the shop...almost like he was sent there just to catch me as I did not make a traffic error. As soon as I pulled in the parking lot, he was behind me asking if there was an IID installed. I answered "No, I'm dropping it off to install it right now". He then gave me another misdemeanor for "operating a vehicle without an IID". I feel like I was set up/entrapped as the shop owner claims this is the first time it has ever happened and the first time he has seen anyone sit outside the shop (literally on the shoulder of the road near the entrance). I am now having to appear in court with my lawyer once again to answer the charge and again in court to be resentenced for violating CD. My questions are: Will I receive jail/probation? Will this get reduced/dismissed as I was literally getting it installed as instructed?
Not that it matters to you now, but once the IID condition is imposed at the time of sentencing, you cannot operate any...
In NYS does the 25 year look back on DWI occur if license is just suspended?
I had a DWAI 20 years ago and a DWI 18 years ago. Earlier this year I got another DWI. Because of my circumstances (work requires license and I have 2 disabled children) - the DA decided to cut me a deal and plead me down to DWAI as long as I complete treatment, the IDP and a Victims Impact Panel - which I fully intend to do. My license is suspended in the meantime. Am I going to have an issue with DMV and the 25 year look back period? I understand the look back is for re-licensing, but because I'm suspended I'm assuming I don't have to re-license?
The DMV regulations/look-back only becomes a factor if you are convicted of a revocable offense (versus a suspension)....
