What to do after getting a DUI can be confusing. Intoxalock is here to help. We have over 20 years of experience helping people just like you install a BAIID or ignition interlock device in Illinois and get back on the road legally.
Don’t let the thought of installing a BAIID in Illinois (ignition interlock device (IID), car breathalyzer or interlock system) intimidate you. Our law specialists will answer all of your ignition interlock questions and walk you through Illinois State requirements and laws, help you find a local authorized service center and schedule an installation conveniently nearby, to regain your license as quickly as possible.
If you are arrested for a first offense DUI in Illinois, your driving privileges will be suspended for a minimum of six months. If you refuse to submit to testing, your driving privileges will be suspended for one year. However, you may be eligible for driving relief and a Monitoring Device Driving Permit (MDDP) during the period of Statutory Summary Suspension (SSS). An eligible driver must receive their MDDP by mail from the Secretary of State’s office and install a Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device (BAIID).
NOTE: Drivers under the age of 18, or drivers whose license is otherwise invalid are not eligible for an MDDP. Previous violations may also effect eligibility.
If you are arrested for a second offense DUI, your driving license will be suspended for a minimum of one year. If you refuse to submit to testing, your driving privileges will be suspended for three years. In most cases, you will be eligible to regain driving privileges with a Restricted Driving Permit (RDP). You will not be eligible for full license reinstatement until you’ve installed and driven with a BAIID in your vehicle for a minimum of five years. Drivers under the of 16 whose driving privileges are revoked are not eligible for a RDP.
NOTE: If you refuse to submit to testing after being involved in a crash where serious personal injury or death was involved, your driving privileges will be revoked for a minimum of one year.
To obtain a MDDP, you must pay applicable fees including a BAIID monitoring fee and MDDP issuance fee. The BAIID monitoring fee is paid in advance to the Illinois Secretary of State and is assessed for one year at a time. The MDDP is needed in order to install a BAIID. Issuance of a MDDP and installation of a BAIID allows a driver to legally operate a vehicle at any time of day or night.
NOTE: A MDDP or RDP allows the holder to drive a vehicle to the service center location for the installation of a BAIID within 14 days of its issuance.
In addition to a SSS or revocation, you may be convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol, other drugs and/or intoxicating compounds and have your driving privileges revoked.
If convicted, you may also be subject to:
To obtain a Restricted Driving Permit (RDP), you must provide a current professional alcohol/drug evaluation and when appropriate, provide proof of remedial education or treatment. You must also pay all applicable fees, including a BAIID monitoring fee and RDP issuance fee. The BAIID monitoring fee is paid in advance to the Illinois Secretary of State and is assessed for one year at a time. This permit will only allow you to drive according to the restrictions outlined in your permit by the Illinois Secretary of State’s office.
If you have been approved for an RDP by Department of Administrative Hearings, you will receive a letter outlining the requirements that will need to be fulfilled within 60 days.
This may include:
If you are convicted of second or third DUI offense, you must install a BAIID on all vehicles registered, owned/co-owned, titled/co-titled in your name.
