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.
AZ DUI laws feature multiple penalties for a DUI in Arizona. They include license suspension and other penalties. Some of them are financial, and others require court-ordered community service. As of January 1, 2023, Arizona has made changes to the penalties for DUI. Here are the current penalties for an AZ DUI:
In addition to these penalties, AZ DUI laws state that an offender may need to enroll in additional addiction treatment or educational programs. 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, your license can be revoked for one year, and an IID can be required for the revocation period. Additionally, you may be required to undergo drug and alcohol screening before your driver’s license is reinstated. If you have a prior DUI offense, these penalties could increase to include 120 days in jail and a fine of $3,250.

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:
The statute will determine how long you need to use an IID, but the court can extend the time. The only way to confirm you are eligible to remove the device is to check with your monitoring authority.
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.
