Second DUI and Restricted License with IID

In follow up to earlier blogs, it is now possible for a second offender to re-instate his or her license early with the installation of an ignition interlock device in his or her vehicle. Following an arrest for a second DUI within ten years a persons privilege to drive may be suspended by the DMV for a period of one year after the APS hearing and two years following a conviction by the court. Prior to July 2010, it was not possible to re-instate on a restricted license until after one year of suspension.
As a result of a change in the law operative July 1st 2010, a person may now apply for a restricted license following ninety days of mandatory suspension as a result of the court conviction. The restricted license is granted if a person shows proof of installation of an ignition interlock device for a period of 12 months, in addition to the normal requirements of proof of enrollment in the multiple offender alcohol program and SR22 proof of insurance. The one year suspension from the administrative per se hearing will terminate when the IID restriction has been placed on the driver record.
For a third offense in ten years, it is now possible to apply for a restricted license with an IID after six months of suspension. The IID must be installed for two years in this case.
