Information on Alaska Ignition Interlock laws, interlock installation locations and recovering your license after an Alaska  DUI

Alaska ignition interlock laws require that any driver convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) must install an ignition interlock device (IID), including an electronic log device, on every vehicle they own or which is registered to them. First offenders may be eligible for a limited license with an ignition interlock after 30 days; second and subsequent offenders after 90 days. Offenders with a BAC of .16 or higher require an ignition interlock for 6 months minimum after the suspension period. During suspension, you may not operate a motor vehicle unless it is equipped with a certified ignition interlock device. You must pay all costs associated with the installation and maintenance of the IID. The court may order the screening, evaluation, referral, and program requirements of an alcohol safety action program as a condition of probation or parole. In addition to fines, $300 in court costs must be paid. Community service work can be mandated in place of or in addition to imprisonment. Note: these penalties are for non-felony DUI convictions.

Penalties for felony DUI convictions are more severe.
