Ignition Interlock Device Laws in Covina
California operates under admin per se laws. These laws allow an arresting officer to confiscate and suspend your driver’s license should they suspect you of driving under the influence. The laws are upheld by California’s Department of Motor Vehicles and is separate from any criminal charges you may receive for failing or refusing or test or being found guilty of a DUI in a criminal court.
An admin per se suspension occurs immediately when you fail or refuse to take a chemical test. The arresting officer confiscates your license and provides you with an order of suspension and a temporary license. Your license, the officer’s report, and any other pertinent information is then sent to the DMV, which reviews the information and determines whether you deserve a suspension. If you do receive a suspension and feel it is unjustified, you can request a hearing within 10 days of your suspension order.
Admin per se suspensions are often more severe if you refuse to take a chemical test. For your first offense for refusing a chemical test, your license will be suspended for a year. A second offense results in a license revocation of two years, while a third offense leads to a license revocation of three years.
Along with administrative penalties, you may receive criminal penalties passed by a court of law. Penalties can differ based on your specific case but usually include:
- Up to six months of jail time
- Installation of an ignition interlock device
- Participation in a DUI program
- A license reinstatement fee of $125
- Fines up to $1,000 (on top of additional fines and court fees)
Subsequent DUI offenses often mean higher fines, more jail time, and longer suspension periods. You are also responsible for paying for installation and monthly maintenance of your ignition interlock device.
