Who Gets a SIIRDL and Where Can I Drive With One?
Who Gets a SIIRDL?
After January 1, 2012, and upon application only (i.e., you must go to MVD and apply), a SIIRDL is available to anyone with a class D or G license suspended or revoked due to:
1) Refusing to cooperate with a law enforcement officer by providing blood, breath, or urine (“refusal suspension”).
2) A revocation due to a second misdemeanor DUI within 84 months (seven years).
3) An aggravated or felony DUI.
Exactly where can I drive with a SIIRDL?
1) Between home and work.
2) Between home, school and work.
3) Between your home and a screening, education or treatment facility for scheduled appointments.
4) Between home and a probation officer for scheduled appointments.
5) Between home and your healthcare provider between home and a certified ignition interlock device service facility.
No, you can’t stop at the grocery store, your friend’s house, and please don’t stop at the liquor store. (I’m not kidding. People get arrested at the liquor store all the time in violation of their SIIRDL.)
Be aware: the law changed effective January 1, 2012. So if your date of violation is prior to January 1, 2012, the old A.R.S. § 28-1402 applies to you. The new law allows for a SIIRDL for second-time misdemeanor DUIs and first-time class IV and class VI felony DUIs. Therefore, if your date of violation was prior to January 1, 2012, you may not be eligible for a SIIRDL under your circumstances.
