A: The law in Wisconsin does state that if you have a previous first offense DUI that was more than 10 years ago and you now have another first offense, you are required to have the ignition interlock device installed. In practical terms, if the information sent in to the Department of Transportation does not indicate an IID is required, installation will not be required.
