Ignition Interlock Device Laws in Encino
Similar to other states, California has admin per se laws that are enforced by the Department of Motor Vehicles. The admin per se laws essentially allow an officer of the law to immediately suspend your drivers license after failing or refusing a chemical test for a suspected DUI. The officer immediately confiscates your license and issues a suspension order. They then send the license, a report, and any other pertinent details to the DMV for review. If the DMV deems it necessary, your license will be suspended. However, you have the right to request a hearing within 10 days of receiving the initial order of suspension if you feel that it is not justified.
Admin per se penalties are generally harsher if you refuse the chemical test.
- First offense: 1-year license suspension
- Second offense: 2-year license revocation
- Third offense: 3-year license revocation
The penalties you incur from admin per se laws are separate from penalties from a DUI criminal conviction. The penalties for a first offense DUI charge include:
- Up to six months of prison time
- Up to $1,000 in fines (not including other fines and legal fees)
- $125 fee to reinstate your license
- Installation of an ignition interlock device
- Mandatory enrollment in a DUI program (the length of time depends on your blood alcohol concentration and other factors during your arrest)
Second and subsequent DUI offenses will result in harsher penalties, including longer prison sentences and higher fines and fees. You are also required to pay for all of the costs involved in having an ignition interlock device, including installation and maintenance.
