Princeton, IL asked in DUI / DWI for Illinois

Q: Are there instances where an interlock device is NOT required for re-instatement after a revocation, and what are they?

I am currently in the process of re-instatement after a revocation. Hearing is scheduled. I have 2 Dui's, the last one in 2005. I have been revoked since, on a 3-yr revocation, due to 4 DWR. NONE of the subsequent arrests have been alcohol related. I am interested in if an interlock device is ALWAYS required.

A: Yes the device will be required by the Secretary of State. The device is called a BAIID. The BAIID is a condition of receiving a Restricted Driving Permit for a person who has two or three DUI convictions; or two statutory summary suspensoins (as a result of two DUI arrests); or one DUI conviction with a statutory summary suspension from a separate DUI arrest. A person who has two or three DUI convictions must obtain a RDP, drive only vehicles equipped with BAIID and install a BAIID on all vehicles registered in his/her name for a period of five continuous years as a prerequisite for full reinstatement of driving privileges.
