Nevada allows some DUI offenders to regain their driving privileges if they install an ignition interlock device (IID) approved by the state. Ignition interlock devices prevent offenders from starting their car without first taking a breath alcohol content (BrAC) test. If they do not pass, they will be unable to start their vehicle. The device may also request retests randomly throughout any trip to ensure continuous sobriety.
Nevada has a lot of penalties for DUI, and they include financial and administrative penalties, along with criminal penalties. The state also recently updated its interlock policy as of June 2021, and the following applies to all offenses from that date forward.
