Ignition Interlock Device Laws in Sacramento, California
Like many other states, California allows the Department of Motor Vehicles to enforce its own laws, known as admin per se laws. This allows an arresting officer to immediately suspend your license if you are suspected of driving under the influence or fail or refuse to take a chemical test. You will receive an official order of suspension, while your license is sent to the DMV, along with the officer’s report and any other information, for official review to determine your suspension period. If you do receive a suspension and believe it is not justified, you can request a hearing within ten days of your initial suspension order.
Generally, admin per se penalties are harsher if you refuse to take a test than if you simply fail your test. For your first offense for refusing to take the test, you will receive a one-year license suspension. A second offense can lead to a license revocation of two years, while a third offense leads to your license being revoked for three years.
Admin per se penalties are separate from criminal penalties for a DUI conviction. Criminal penalties in Sacramento can differ from case to case, but for a first offense, you can usually expect:
- Up to 6 months of jail time
- Up to $1,000 in fines (this does not include court costs and other fees)
- License reinstatement fee of $125
- Enrollment in a DUI program
- Installation of an ignition interlock device
If you are required to install a car breathalyzer, you are responsible for all fees and costs associated with installation and maintenance.
