Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
If your license is suspended, your right to own, sell, transfer, or purchase new property is not suspended with it.
While you cannot operate or drive either the old vehicle or a new vehicle that you purchase, you can indeed purchase a new car even when you have a suspended license.
You, however, cannot install the interlock switch yourself--you would need to inform the DMV, bring the old vehicle and then the new vehicle for the formal interlock installation. Removing it yourself, or putting it on yourself could be considered tampering.
Hope that helps!

yea~i mean .. not install or remove bu myself
i mean can i sell the old one before i go to install the device
i just need to go to install the device in new car
That's fine, that you can do, no problem. If the interlock is not yet installed, you can quickly sell the vehicle and obtain something else, then place the interlock on it.
Just do not operate it yourself--it has to be driven and installed by a third party.
Hope that clarifies and helps. Please be well and have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!

I understand. Please see my answer above.
You can sell the old vehicle, you can purchase a new vehicle, you can then install the interlock on the new vehicle when you apply for the license.
A per the DMV requirements: he driver must submit either the Department of Motor Vehicles Ordered Verification of Ignition Interlock (DL 924) form or the Exemption for Ignition Interlock Device (DL 4054B) form to the DMV within 30 days from the mail date of the Order of Installment of an Ignition Interlock Device (DL 4054A) form.
