How do I know if I need to install an IID in Colorado?

It is not intended to and should not be relied upon or construed as a legal opinion or legal advice or to address all circumstances that might arise.

Some information may be dated and may not reflect the most current legal developments. Smart Start expressly disclaims all liability regarding actions taken or not taken based on any or all content.

According to the Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV), you are required to have an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) installed if you were arrested for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) before or after January 1, 2023, but the requirements may vary depending on your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) and the circumstances of your arrest.

If you have been arrested for a DUI in Colorado, you may be confused about what will happen to your driving privileges and what will happen in court. It is important to understand that these are two separate and distinct paths in Colorado. Each path has its own timeline and requirements.

The Administrative and Court Process

The two paths following a DUI in Colorado are the Administrative Process, through the DMV, and the Court Process through the judicial system. Each path operates independently from each other. Both paths may require alcohol and drug treatment education.

When you’re facing a DUI charge, your case is referred to the local district attorney’s office, responsible for prosecuting the case. It’s important to note that the court process operates independently of the Administrative Process, and each follows its distinct timeline. Decisions made in one process do not impact the other. If you are found guilty of DUI in court, the potential consequences may include fines, jail time, participation in treatment programs, restitution, or probation, all determined by the court’s judgment.

To request a hearing and explore your options further, we encourage you to visit the Colorado DMV website.

Financial Assistance

Colorado’s Department of Revenue may be able to help those who are unable to pay the full costs of their Interlock Device. If you qualify for assistance and funds are available, the Department may pay for a portion of your interlock device cost. Find out if you qualify by visiting their website.
