Connecticut DUI Classification
In Connecticut, a DUI is defined as:
CONNECTICUT IGNITION INTERLOCK LAWS
Individuals who have been arrested and charged with certain types of DUI violations may be ordered to complete the Ignition Interlock Device (IID) program. This program mandates that an approved breathalyzer device must be installed in each of the vehicles that the individual operates. This is done to prevent subsequent arrests for DUI and to protect the safety of the community at large.
|1.||Download and print the Ignition Interlock Device Installation Application (P-246 form). Complete part 1 of the application and sign the Operator Certification section. The vehicle listed on the form must have a valid registration.|
|2.||If you are not the owner of record for the vehicle, the registered owner must complete part 2|
|3.||Contact one of the Connecticut-approved IID vendors to schedule an appointment to have the IID installed. The installer will complete part 3 of the application.|
|4.||Submit the completed P-246 form. If the vehicle is registered outside Connecticut submit a copy of the valid registration certificate|
|5.||Pay the $175.00 restoration fee and the $100.00 IID Administration fee. Fees may be paid by a check or money order made payable to DMV and submitted with your IID application or you can pay the fees online|
Mail your IID application to:
Department of Motor Vehicles
Driver Services Division
