Talk to State Specialist
What to do after getting a DUI can be confusing. Intoxalock is here to help. We have over 25 years of experience helping people install an ignition interlock or car breathalyzer in California and getting back on the road.
If you are arrested and/or convicted of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) in the State of California, there are multiple penalties that you could face, including the suspension of your license. You are legally intoxicated in California with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 or greater. However, underage drivers, drivers with a CDL type of license, or those who have prior DUI charges may recieve a DUI charge at lower BAC levels. You may be charged with a DUI in California if you have consumed alcohol but are under the legal limit, or if you are under the influence of drugs, and your driving ability has been impaired.
Intoxalock State Specialists will help you complete your forms for the CA DMV and MAU, and get back on the road safely and legally.
