Oregon Ignition Interlock DUII Laws

Oregon law requires any driver convicted of driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUII) to have their driving privileges suspended. In many cases, the offender will be able to regain driving privileges by installing an ignition interlock device (IID) on their vehicle. Offenders are responsible for all costs associated with the installation and maintenance of the device.

When you are arrested for a DUII in Oregon your license can be suspended in two different ways:

Administrative: This only happens if you fail a breath test, or refuse to take one. Your license will be suspended immediately, and the arresting officer will give you a temporary driving permit good for 10 days so you can get your affairs in order. During this time you can challenge your case. If you decide not to, or if your challenge is unsuccessful, your license will be suspended on the 11th day for three months.

Judicial: This occurs when you are sentenced by a court after a trial or plea agreement.

You must attend to both suspensions in order to regain your driving privileges.

After 30 days of administrative suspension, you can apply for an ignition interlock device to regain your driving privileges.

For judicial suspensions in Oregon, you may apply for an ignition interlock after a period of 30 days for 1st offense, one year for 2nd offense, and 10 years for 3rd and subsequent offenses. The period for which you must have an interlock installed after license reinstatement can be up to two years.

Alcohol/drug screening interview, evaluation, and treatment program are mandatory. You might have to attend a victim impact treatment session. For more information, visit the Oregon DMV website.

Interlock Cost

How much does an interlock cost in Oregon?

What you expect to pay for an ignition interlock (IID) in Oregon is about the same as the national average of $3 per day. It’s ideal to save money, but when you’re looking for a car breathalyzer, value is just as important, if not more important. Take into consideration the quality of the device, installation, and customer service. In all three, LifeSafer is a cut above the rest.
