Q&a - How Does My Son Get His Licence Back?
It has been over a year since my son lost his licence for pleading guilty to drinking too much wine at my new years dinner and running to the store for me. He went through a road block, and blew over. I would not have sent him if I thought he was impaired, but with the new laws, he was guilty.
I am trying to help get him an answer as what to do now. He works in a camp job where they fly him in and out. It is sometimes a three week in and one week out routine, but this last month he has worked 52 days without coming home.
The question he wants me to find out is how does he ever get his licence back when he does no driving for his job, and no driving when he is home as that is when he has a few drinks with us or his buddies. He goes the whole time in a dry camp so deserves to drink when he is off work.
And he knows better now to drive at all if he has even one drink. In other words,he does not drive at all, so how can he get a breathalizer on his vehicle and make it work?? Does the law state if they go without driving for a year, can they get their licence back? Especially when they cannot see where a breathalizer can be used in their situation?
Not driving at work, and not driving when home, but wanting their licence in the future if needed?
