The ignition interlock process in AZ can be confusing and lengthy, but Intoxalock is here to help you every step of the way. This page will cover what you need to get back on the road, from petitioning for a hardship permit to getting an IID installed.
In Arizona, anyone 21 and over who is caught driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) over .08 percent risks being charged with DUI. First, second, and third-time offenders are given license suspensions of various lengths and are required to install an ignition interlock device.
If you are required to install an ignition interlock device (IID) in Arizona, you can download and complete the Arizona IID Program Application Form below to begin the State of Arizona ignition interlock installation process.
There are penalties for a DUI in Arizona along with license suspension and other court-ordered penalties. Some of them are financial, and others require community service during the DUI term. Here are the penalties for an AZ DUI:
In addition to these penalties, the court may order additional addiction treatment or road safety courses as part of the AZ ignition Interlock program. There is a list of information and approved facilities available through ADOT if you need to attend a course. The court may also mandate a specific course, so check for information from them as well.
If you refuse to complete a test, you will likely receive a license suspension of one to three years, depending on if you have past Arizona DUI offenses.
If your license is suspended but you need to drive, you may be eligible for a Restricted Permit. What is a Restricted Permit? It’s designed to help drivers for whom serving the full DUI term suspension is a financial hardship, as they need to drive for work.
The Restricted Permit allows Arizona drivers to drive to approved locations if they install an ignition interlock device. A variety of criteria must be met to qualify. If you’re unsure about anything, Intoxalock’s state specialists can help.
Arizona residents, here’s your checklist to get a Restricted Permit:
In some cases, the court will order installation of an ignition interlock device. In many cases it’s determined by statute, but the court can add on additional time to the device period or require it if not mandated by the statute. Drivers can also get one voluntarily if they need assistance in maintaining sobriety.
An ignition interlock device, or IID, is a small device installed in your vehicle which:
Arizona approves the Intoxalock Legacy device. This IID is the most affordable ignition interlock device model. The device operates on fuel cell technology which ensures the highest accuracy in the industry.
If your sentence includes mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device, this means you will be paying for it yourself. IIDs are leased, not purchased outright. All ignition interlock costs must be covered by the driver, though there are financial hardship options available. Check with a state specialist or your attorney to determine if you qualify.
