Pennsylvania Ignition Interlock Information

In the state of Pennsylvania, an ignition interlock device (IID) may be required for all alcohol-related Driving Under the Influence (DUI) convictions. The offender is responsible for all costs associated with the IID.

In the case of a first offense DUI in Pennsylvania, the offender’s license will be suspended for 12 months. The offender may be able to obtain their Pennsylvania Occupational Limited License (OLL) with the installation of an IID. After serving 60 days of their 12 month suspension, the offender can apply by submitting to PennDOT a completed DL-15 form for the OLL Petition, proof of insurance and a $50 non-refundable OLL application fee. Within 20 days of receiving the petition, PennDOT will inform the offender in writing whether or not they qualify for an OLL.

In the case of a second offense DUI in Pennsylvania, the offender’s license will be suspended for 12 months with no eligibility for driving privileges during that time. After serving their 12 month suspension, the offender must serve a five day to five year jail sentence, pay all applicable fees, provide proof of attendance at an alcohol highway safety school and treatment classes (if so ordered by the court), complete the requirements specified by PennDOT in their Restorations Requirement Letter and install an IID. The offender must successfully complete one year with an IID installed before they can regain their unrestricted driver’s license.

In the case of a third or subsequent offense DUI in Pennsylvania, the offender’s license will be suspended for 12 to 18 months with no eligibility for driving privileges during that time. After serving their 12 to 18 month suspension, the offender must serve a ten day to five year jail sentence, pay all applicable fees, provide proof of attendance at an alcohol highway safety school and treatment classes (if so ordered by the court), complete the requirements specified by PennDOT in their Restorations Requirement Letter and install an IID.
