All DUI classifications and repeat offenses in the state of Arizona will require the installment of an ignition interlock device on any vehicles driven by the offender.

ARIZONA CERTIFIED IGNITION INTERLOCK PROGRAM
When Arizona law mandates use of an interlock following a period of driver license suspension/revocation, you must have one installed by an MVD-authorized company and provide proof of the installation. As part of the IID program, Arizona regulation, A.R.S. 28-1462, states you will be charged a $20 administration fee for the installation of your device. The fee is then paid directly to the state by the IID service provider. The Arizona MVD uses special forms and procedures to monitor drivers who've been required to have the device installed. You may be issued a replacement driver license containing the words "Ignition Interlock" and mark your record so that law-enforcement officers will be aware of the interlock requirement if you are stopped.
