Restricted Driving Permit Reinstatement Attorney

Drivers who have had their licenses suspended or revoked may be eligible to receive a Restricted Driving Permit (RDP), which will require using a Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device (BAIID) before they will be able to have their license reinstated fully. The rules for utilizing a BAIID device while you are on an RDP are different than the rules for using a BAIID while on an MDDP.

The Kurash Law Firm has vast experiencing in helping client to obtain an RDP if they are eligible and in order to obtain one, you will need to get approval following an administrative hearing before the Secretary of State. There will be a required monthly monitoring fee for the BAIID device, and the device may only be installed by a BAIID certified provider. After you are issued the RDP, you have 14 days to have the BAIID installed. Once it has been installed, you are able to drive within the limits of the RDP.

Using a BAIID Device

If you are driving on an RDP, you are only allowed to drive a vehicle that has the BAIID device installed in it. Within the first month of installation, you will need to take your vehicle to the BAIID provider to have your initial monitor report. After that, you will need to go back every 60 days to have it calibrated and to have a monitor report that will be sent to the Secretary of State.

You will also be required to keep a journal that documents any time you have unsuccessfully started your vehicle or any time that you had a problem with the device. You are not allowed to remove the device without first receiving permission.

Violations of the BAIID Device

Your BAIID provider will be sending a monitor report to the Secretary of State, and the Secretary of State may send you a letter that will ask you to explain any of the following instances:

  • Why the monitoring report by the BAIID provider said that the BAIID device had been tampered with
  • Why there is a police report that says you were using alcohol or drugs
  • Why there were 10 or more unsuccessful attempt to start your vehicle after the first 30-day monitoring period
  • Why you had a breath alcohol reading of .05 or higher
  • Why you were stopped by the police for an alcohol or drug-related offense
  • Why you were unable to successfully complete a running retest
  • Why you were unable to successfully run a retest after the initial 30-day monitoring period

If you have received a letter stating a violation, you will need to send in a written response within 21 days to explain the violation. If the Secretary of State accepts your explanation, no further action will be necessary. If you are unable to provide an acceptable explanation, it will become a part of your record and you will need to address it at your next administrative hearing. At the hearing, if the Secretary of State is still not satisfied with testimony, they may refuse to give you back your driver’s license or you may have any driving privileges revoked completely.

The penalties for a BAIID violation

Penalties for a BAIID violation vary from having your explanation rejected to having your RDP cancelled completely. If you have a serious violation of your BAIID device, it will cancel your RDP. If your license has been reinstated before the violation was brought to the attention of the Secretary of State, it may result in your driving privileges being canceled.

If you had a BAIID violation and your RDP was canceled because of it, you may not be allowed to have a hearing in which you could re-apply to have your driving privileges for one year from the date of the cancellation.

The Kurash Law Firm has license reinstatement attorneys who have represented numerous clients before the Secretary of State and have helped them to get driving relief if their license has been suspended or revoked.
