Nebraska Interlock Device Guidelines

In Nebraska, even first-time offenders can apply for an ignition interlock device. When you are convicted of a DUI, the court will order a 90-day administrative license revocation. Thirty days after this revocation, you may be allowed to apply for an ignition interlock permit. This allows you to operate any vehicle that has an interlock device installed, if you submitted to a chemical test that showed that your BAC was 0.08 or higher.

The court may also allow you to obtain an ignition interlock permit as an alternative to vehicle disablement. With this permit, you may be allowed to operate vehicles with an ignition interlock device if you have been sentenced to an operator’s license revocation of at least 1 year and completed at least 1 year of that revocation.

If you have no priors, you can only operate your vehicle to go to work, school, parole meetings, a substance abuse treatment center, community service, or a healthcare facility. If you do have a record, you may only drive your car to school, work, and treatment facilities.

Circumventing or tampering with an interlock in Nebraska may lead to your ignition interlock period to get extended by another 6 months.
