Texas Interlock Device Guidelines

We recommend you consult with a credible and local DWI attorney for legal advice. In Texas, the penalties for driving while intoxicated differ by case, but generally speaking Texas defines a DWI (driving while intoxicated/impaired) as:

  • You are legally intoxicated if your blood alcohol concentration is 0.08 or more 
  • If you show signs of impairment while driving, regardless of blood alcohol concentration

You can suffer two types of suspensions for drinking and driving in Texas.

  1. A judicial suspension, in which the court will convict you of a DWI and suspend your license.
  2. An administrative license revocation (ALR), is when the Texas Department of Public Safety confiscates your license immediately if your BAC is above 0.08 or if you refuse a test. Refusing to take a breathalyzer when lawfully requested by an officer may result in automatic penalties. These can include restricted driving privileges and or fines.

According to Texas law, first-time DWI offenders may be fined up to $2,000, have a jail sentence of up to 6 months, and have a license suspension of up to 1 year. The court also might order an interlock device installation for the period of the license suspension. The ignition interlock device (IID) is a breathalyzer installed into your car that prevents you from being able to start your car if you have been drinking. In some cases, the offender may choose a hard license suspension with no interlock device in Texas. People with occupational licenses, first-time offenses and multiple DUI offenses within 10 years can only operate vehicles that have an ignition interlock device installed.

Texas DUI Penalties

Penalties aside from a required interlock device depend on your case. Generally speaking, these are a few examples of penalties that one can expect:

  • License suspensions are standard, along with fines based on any previous DUI/DWI offenses and your BAC at the time of arrest
  • A second DWI offenses can have fines up to $4,000 with a jail sentence of up to 1 year
  • Three or more types of DWI offenses are considered third-degree felonies, resulting in fines of up to $10,000, a prison sentence of up to 10 years, license suspension of up to 2 years, and 160 to 600 hours of community service
    • You will also have to pay up to $2,000 a year to retain your license as you regain driving privileges
