Driving Under the Influence

Driving Under the Influence (DUI)

A police officer must arrest and take into custody, pending release on bail, personal recognizance, or court order, a person without warrant when the officer has probable cause to believe that person violated DUI or physical control (PC) laws and has a prior offense for DUI or PC within ten years.

As a condition of release from custody before arraignment or trial, a defendant who has a prior DUI, PC, vehicular homicide, or vehicular assault offense must have a functioning ignition interlock device (IID) installed with proof filed with the court within five (5) business days of the date of release, or comply with the 24/7 sobriety monitoring program, or both. 

For approved IID certified providers visit the WSP website.

For more information regarding IID, please contact  Department of Licensing.
