Ignition Interlock Device Laws in Santa Monica

In California, you may be required to install an ignition interlock device in any and all vehicles you own and operate even for a first offense DUI charge. If the court does require you to install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle, you are responsible for any costs associated with owning the device, including interlock device installation in Santa Monica and maintenance. Furthermore, you may only get an IID installed from a court-approved vendor.

Along with an ignition interlock device, you may have to serve various other penalties. California operates under admin per se laws that are enforced by the Department of Motor Vehicles. These laws stipulate that by failing or refusing a chemical test administered by an officer who suspects you of driving under the influence, the DMV can immediately suspend your license. You have the right to a hearing to dispute this suspension if you feel that it is not justified.

A suspension from the DMV is known as an administrative suspension. Administrative suspensions are separate from any criminal suspensions or penalties that may be charged by a court of law during a trial or plea agreement. This means that, even if you are found not guilty of a DUI, you must still serve the administrative suspension for failing or refusing the test.

Penalties for a first offense DUI can vary, but you can generally expect:

  • Up to $1,000 in fines (not including court fees)
  • Up to 6 months of jail
  • $125 fee to reinstate your license
  • Completion of a drug and alcohol abuse program
  • Installation of a car breathalyzer
  • Filing of an SR-22 insurance form


Subsequent DUI offenses can result in more severe penalties, including higher fines and longer IID periods.
