If you have been arrested for drunk driving in the state of Arizona one of your main concerns may be whether or not you can continue to drive to work to continue to earn money and support your family. According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, some drivers may be able to get their restricted Arizona driver’s license if their violation occurred after February 1, 2006 if they meet certain
requirements. According to the department the driver must:
1. Contact the Arizona Department of Transportation and make sure you are eligible for a restricted driver’s license.
2. Verify that there are not other actions or withdrawals pending on your Arizona driver’s license.
3. Install an ignition interlock device on your car and provide proof of the installation to the Arizona Department of Transportation. Drivers must complete the Verification of Installation form and submit it to the DOT(see Arizona Revised Statutes 28-1381, 28-1382, 28-1383, 28-1461 and 28-3319). Drivers who do not offer the MVD proof that they have installed the device within 30 days may face an immediate suspension of their driving privileges and the DOT may extend the length of time you have to drive with an ignition interlock device installed.
4. Drivers who have been required to attend a alcohol education course by the court must submit a form indicating they have completed this program.
5. Show proof of purchase of SR22 insurance to the Department of Transportation.
