NEW MEXICo interlock license

One Quick Trip!


After a DWI or DUI, the State of New Mexico requires driver’s licenses to be in a revoked status for an interlock license to be issued. You can call us to verify the status of your driver’s license. As part of your DWI/DUI interlock license, you’ll have an NM 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.

Once you apply for your Interlock License, you will receive a temporary printout of your license that is valid for 45 days. You will need to carry this printout until you receive your physical license in the mail. All licenses are printed and mailed by the State of New Mexico. Please allow up to 3 weeks for you to receive your new license in the mail. We understand that many scenarios may impact your Interlock License application process. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at 505-341-2MVD, or email us. We will be more than happy to assist you in the process.

Our goal at MVD Now is to save you the headache and stress that comes with applying for your interlock license. We understand that you are busy, that time is valuable and limited, and that the last thing you want to do is wait in line. That’s why we want to help you make one quick trip to the MVD. Here are the documents that you will need to provide to apply for your New Mexico Interlock License.

  • One (1) current ignition interlock contract 
  • One (1) original and notarized “Affidavit for Ignition Interlock” – Download Form Here
  • One (1) proof of insurance (must be in the applicant’s name or the applicant must be listed as a covered driver. The policy must contain the same VIN number as the interlock contract.) We can accept the following proofs of insurance.
    • Current auto insurance card
    • Copy of your current auto insurance policy
    • A letter from your auto insurance company (on company letterhead) that verifies your auto insurance coverage.

If you do not have a current driver’s license in New Mexico or any other state, you will also need to provide the required documents for a first-time license in addition to the requirements mentioned above.  We recommend that you visit our Real ID or Standard Driver’s License pages to view those required documents.


Here at MVD Now, we want to make your MVD visit as seamless as possible. Walk-ins are welcome, but we encourage you to schedule an appointment so you can guarantee zero wait time. There are two ways you can schedule an appointment. You can call us at 505-341-2MVD and we can schedule your appointment and also verify your documents over the phone. You also have the option of scheduling your own appointment through our online scheduler. If you schedule online, one of our MVD agents will call you to verify your documents before your appointment date. This will ensure that you bring all the necessary documents and prevents the dreaded “multiple trip” headache.

When you arrive at any of our offices, you will be greeted by a friendly MVD agent at the front door. They will help you check-in for your appointment, verify your documents, and answer any questions that you may have. One of our other MVD agents will promptly assist you and process your transaction. You can even fill out and have your Affidavit for Ignition Interlock notarized in our office. Once completed, we collect payment and you are on your way! MVD Now also partners with local charities throughout the year. Currently, we are working with Make-A-Wish New Mexico. You have the option of rounding your MVD total to the nearest dollar or donating any other amount to this great foundation. Our goal is to deliver the most secure, efficient, professional, and friendly MVD services in town.


We understand that your time is limited and valuable. That is why we strive to help you make one quick trip. We treat you like you would treat you! We invite you to come and experience our customer service, speed, and efficiency. We break the MVD stereotype!
