Effective October 1, 2014, South Carolina will alter how it handles licensing convicted drunk drivers. First time offenders will be required to install ignition interlock devices in their automobiles before being licensed to drive again. An ignition interlock device is similar to a mini-breath test device. It plugs in your car and requires a breath sample prior to operating the motor vehicle.
TO BE LICENSED:
1. First Offense DUI Conviction – Six Month Ignition Interlock Device
2. Second Offense DUI Conviction – Two Years Ignition Interlock Device
3. Third Offense DUI Conviction – Three Years Ignition Interlock Device
