Arizona Ignition Interlock Device FAQ Part. 2

Q. Why do I have to have an Ignition Interlock Device installed if my DUI conviction was for drugs and not alcohol?

A. Unfortunately, the interlock is required when an individual is convicted of DUI regardless of substance. ARS 28‑1381 states that it is unlawful to drive under the influence of intoxicating liquor, any drug (unless prescribed by a medical practitioner), a vapor releasing substance containing a toxic substance or any combination of liquor, drugs or vapor releasing substances if impaired to the slightest degree.

Q. What happens if I get caught driving a vehicle without an interlock device installed in it?

A. If you get convicted of this offense you will add another year to the length of your original restriction.

Q. I have a commercial drivers license. Can I get a special restricted drivers license?

A. Only those with Class D or Class G licenses are eligible for special restricted drivers licenses.
