How long will I have to use an ignition interlock device following my first DUI offense?

I don't have to use this as long as I have the car, do I? .

In Missouri it is highly unlikely that you will even need to install an IID after a first-time offense.

For many, an interlock is not required for a first time DUI conviction. A second conviction, however, carries with it a six month time period.

You will need to have an interlock on the car you are driving for the time period imposed by the court -- the interlock will not follow the car.

Best of luck.

In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship.... more

While first DUIs generally have much lighter sentences, they can still have significant indirect effects, such as increased insurance rates.
