What Do You Know About New Mexico’s Drinking and Driving Laws?
In response to the increasing number of DWI’s in New Mexico, the Legislature passed strict laws to reduce the number of accidents and arrests. These new laws include reducing the legal level of intoxication to 0.08 percent BAC and implementing tougher penalties for lawbreakers. The None for the Road program was created in 1993 to increase awareness about the issue and to educate drivers about the penalties of breaking the law.
If you are a first time licensee between the ages of 18 and 24, this course is a requirement as part of your driver’s education. This is a self-taught course that you are able to complete at home with the help of a training video and a workbook.
If you have received the course workbook from UNM Continuing Education, all you have to do is follow a link to start the course. The link will also give you access to download the workbook, but there is a $25 dollar fee. If you are having trouble viewing the video online, you can also borrow the video from any local library.
In order to be certified in the None for the Road course, the following steps must be taken:
- Complete the test on pages 15 and 16 in your workbook.
- Print the certificate from the video.
- Mail, fax, or bring in the completed test and video certificate to UNM Continuing Education
- You will receive your None for the Road completion certificate in the mail or in our office at the time you turn in your materials.
Completing this program is an important step in reducing the number of injuries and deaths from DWI. Contact us with any questions.
