Oklahoma has multiple penalties for driving under the influence (DUI). Drivers who are found with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 percent or higher are considered legally intoxicated. While the legal BAC limit in Oklahoma is .08 percent, some drivers with a BAC over .05 percent may be arrested for DWI, a lesser offense. Anyone convicted of a DUI in Oklahoma risks heavy penalties.
They include jail time, financial penalties, and license revocation. In order to regain their driving privileges, offenders may be required to install an ignition interlock device (IID) from an approved provider. Refusing to take a test can also result in license revocation.
There are serious penalties starting with the first offense in Oklahoma. DUI offenders receive the following penalties:
A refusal to take the test is not a means of avoiding consequences. Offenders who refuse to take a test may have their license revoked for 180 days to three years.
Offenders are responsible for the cost of the ignition interlock installation and services. ADS does not sell devices outright, because each unit can cost thousands. Instead, customers lease the devices for the duration of their license suspension or revocation.
The price may vary depending on what device the court requires, but typically ignition interlocks cost between $2.50 and $3.50 per day.
In Oklahoma, some offenders can regain their driving privileges if they install an ignition interlock device. The restricted license will only allow them to drive vehicles with an IID installed. To get a restricted license, offenders should:
The monitoring authority will typically require a certificate of installation to grant the license. ADS service centers provide this at installation.
