West Virginia DUI Test and Lock Program

The West Virginia DUI Test and Lock program, also known as ATLP (Alcohol Test and Lock Program), aims to prevent drinking and driving incidents by installing an ignition interlock device in your vehicle. This device requires you to blow into a tube before starting the car, ensuring the driver is sober.

The decision to order the installation of the ignition interlock device rests solely with the judge and is only applicable in certain cases to avoid license suspension.

If you choose to participate in this program, you may have questions and concerns. At Mountaineer Criminal Law Group, our experienced Hancock County criminal lawyers are ready to provide immediate assistance, resolving any issues or addressing your inquiries promptly.

Eligibility for Test and Lock program

Eligibility for the Test and Lock program depends on the specific driving charges you face. Our Hancock County DUI lawyers will guide you through the requirements, providing clear explanations.

  • Our team of lawyers will assess whether joining the program aligns with your needs. If deemed appropriate, you will need to submit an application form along with a mandatory $100 fee. We understand that the paperwork involved can be complex and overwhelming, which is why we offer our dedicated Hancock County DUI lawyer to help you navigate the process.
  • For a first-time conviction of a non-aggravated DUI offense with a blood alcohol concentration below .15%, installing an ignition interlock device can prevent license suspension for six months.
  • In cases where the blood alcohol concentration level exceeds .15% for a first-time non-aggravated DUI offense, installing an ignition interlock device can keep your license for an additional ten and a half months.

At Mountaineer Criminal Law Group, we strive to provide content of the highest quality to ensure optimal engagement.

Special Circumstances Lock Installation and License Revocation

The installation of Special Circumstances Locks and the revocation of licenses

Instances involving special circumstances are typically accompanied by severe penalties. Offenses of this nature, particularly those resulting in serious injuries or loss of life, can lead to extended license suspensions or mandatory installation of the ignition interlock device. The severity of the charges dictates the corresponding punishments.

Choosing to install the interlock device instead of facing license suspension is recommended, especially for those who rely on driving for work or school. This is where our Hancock County DUI lawyer can assist you. With years of experience handling such cases, attorney Sean Logue understands how to address your specific needs.

Client Reviews

I had hired Mr. Logue a few years ago for my gf at the time for charges she had gotten before I had met her, for prostitution. Big mistake to date her and pay for her lawyer as we didn’t work out but Mr. Logue far exceeded expectations. He got nearly all charges in 2 separate cases dropped for her...


I was arrested on a felony 3 charge looking at at least up to 2 years in prison. County District Attorney didn't want to negotiate. After a lot of hard work, Sean was able to plead the case all the way down to just 90 days jail with a work release. Better deal than I realistically could have hoped...

Former Client

Mr. Logue took our son’s cases on very short notice (the first lawyer we hired wasn’t getting anywhere with either of the prosecutors and had actually turned one of the cases over to the court-appointed attorney). We hired Mr. Logue to go to trial if needed, but he worked with both prosecutors and...
