California DUI Laws and the Interlock Process

The Interlock Process

Effective January 1, 2019, California DUI law changed. All repeat DUI offenders and all injury-involved DUI offenders are required to install an ignition interlock. First time DUI offenders will receive a 30-day temporary license after an arrest. To keep driving beyond the 30 days, install an ignition interlock as soon as possible.
