Information on Pennsylvania DWI and Ignition Interlock Laws

Administrative and Judicial

Pennsylvania laws require that an ignition interlock device be installed in the vehicle(s) of DUI/DAI (Driving Under the Influence/Driving After Imbibing) offenders who have been convicted of a 2nd or subsequent offense, or of refusing to take an alcohol test. You also face other penalties. Unlike most states, Pennsylvania does not suspend your license automatically before a trial (administrative suspension); all consequences from a DUI/DAI are from the court.

In addition, alcohol screening and rehabilitation may be required You may be eligible for an occupational limited license (OLL), which lets you drive a specific vehicle for work, medical treatment, or school. After your 1st DUI offense, you may be eligible for the OLL after serving 60 days of your suspension. If you have been suspended for 18 months with one prior offense, you may be eligible for an OLL after 12 months if you install an ignition interlock in your vehicle.

Every situation and state is unique, please consult with your attorney or your state licensing authority to confirm your requirements and obligations.

How much does an interlock cost in Pennsylvania?

Pennsylvania drivers can expect to pay about the national average ($3 per day) for an ignition interlock device (IID), also known as a car breathalyzer.

It’s good to be thrifty, of course, but the cheapest car breathalyzer is not necessarily going to be the best value. When shopping for one in the keystone state, you must ask yourself about the quality of the device, the quality and availability of installation centers, and what kind of customer service you are getting.
