Some people believe that if they are caught driving drunk on a motorcycle, they will not face the same consequences as if they were driving a car. This is false. If you are pulled over and convicted of drunk driving while operating a motorcycle, car, truck or van, you will face the same penalties. Many people wonder if it is required to install a breathalyzer, called an ignition interlock device, if they are convicted of driving drunk while operating a motorcycle.
Regaining Your License
After a drunk driving conviction, your driver’s license will be suspended or revoked, depending on your state’s laws, and you have requirements you must fulfill for your license to be reinstated. In some cases, you will need to install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle. A common misconception is that if you’re required to install an ignition interlock, you will only need to install the device in the vehicle you were pulled over in when the DUI charge was issued. The law does require you to install a device in every vehicle you will operate during your suspension or revocation. You must satisfy this requirement to regain your driver’s license with your motorcycle endorsement.
