California’s Ignition Interlock Program

California’s Ignition Interlock program plays a pivotal role in allowing DUI offenders to regain their driving privileges while ensuring the safety of the roads. An Ignition Interlock device is a breathalyzer-like device installed in a motor vehicle that prevents the vehicle from starting if the driver’s breath alcohol concentration exceeds a certain limit. This device is often required for individuals with a DUI offense as a condition for reinstating their driver’s license.

Ignition Interlock Waiver

California’s Ignition Interlock Waiver provides an avenue for DUI convicts to potentially avoid the mandatory license suspension period. It’s a request submitted to the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), allowing eligible individuals to drive with an installed Ignition Interlock device instead of facing suspension after a DUI conviction.
