A DWI interlock license is required by courts as the result of a DUI conviction. If you live in the Albuquerque, New Mexico area and are required to install an interlock device on your vehicle, MVD Express will assist you with a straightforward process that will have you in and out of our office.


If you were convicted of a DUI, you will need to obtain a special state interlock license before you are able to drive. Your driver’s license must be revoked for an interlock license to be issued. As part if your DWI/DUI interlock license, you’ll have an interlock device installed in your vehicle for a period of one (1) year.

The state interlock license requires a breath-testing device (the interlock) that will require you to give a breath sample before you can start the engine. As you drive, you’ll be occasionally required to provide breath samples as well.


When you come to MVD Express for your state interlock license, be sure to bring required documentation:

  • Proof of ID (Passport, Birth Certificate)
  • Current ignition interlock contract
  • Current proof of insurance (must be in applicant’s name or applicant must be listed as a covered driver and policy must contain VIN number)
  • Original, Notarized ‘Affidavit for Ignition Interlock’ (MVD 10456)

If your driver’s license has been revoked for one year or more, you will also need to bring the following:

  • State-Issued Birth Certificate
  • Original Social Security Card (cannot accept laminated card)
  • Written Test
  • Road Test (if revoked by 5 years or more)
  • Two Proofs of New Mexico Residency
