I have been taking care of my good friend who hurt herself earlier this year in a terrible accident. She was under intensive care for a few weeks and could not work, and her car was totaled from the accident. A few days prior to the accident, she was pulled over and charged with DUI, but obviously did not go to court. She went to court AFTER she totaled her car. The court ordered her 1st offense DUI penalties to be license suspension of 6 months and afterwards and IID installation for 6 months. DMV and the court told her she needs to have an IID installed in her car to get her license back, but she does not have a car obviously. How can she go out, test drive, and buy a car if she doesn't have a license? She will install the IID as soon as she can get a car, but DMV won't help much.
