If I am convicted of a 2nd DUI in Van Nuys, CA, can I get a restricted Right Away with an Interlock Device IID. Is this only an option in Los Angeles, CA?

Answer: If convicted of a 2nd DUI, You will be eligible to get a restricted license on a 2nd DUI after 90 days if you get an IID device and meet the other requirements (ie. enroll in the alcohol class, etc). This is state wide (not a pilot program). Up until recently 2nd time DUI offenders had to wait much longer to get a restricted license, and did not have the IID option to get the restricted license in 90 days. If there is also a probation violation issue, then you may not be eligible for this option
There is a pilot program in four counties in CA that pertains to IID, but that is for a mandatory IID, and does not pertain to the option of getting the work restricted license after 90 days (for 2nd time DUI offender) with the installation of an IID.
Feel free to contact me should you have more questions about this.
