What to do after getting a OWI can be confusing. Intoxalock is here to help. We have over 20 years of experience helping people just like you install an ignition interlock device or car breathalyzer and get back on the road legally in the State of Iowa.
If you are convicted of a first offense OWI in Iowa and you do not have a prior conviction or revocation in the preceding 12 years, your license will be revoked for six months. However, you may apply for your Temporary Restricted License (TRL) immediately. You must install an Intoxalock ignition interlock device (Car breathalyzer, BAIID, IID or interlock system) if you tested at a BAC of 0.10 or above or were involved in an accident.
You must wait 30 days before applying if you:

For a first offense OWI, it is possible to reduce your court fees by up to $625 with the installation of an Intoxalock ignition interlock device. This is solely at the discretion of the judge on a case-by-case basis.
If you are convicted of a second offense OWI in Iowa or have one or move revocations in the preceding 12 years, your license will be revoked for one year. However, you may apply for your Temporary Restricted License (TRL) immediately, but will not be eligible for 45 days. You must install an Intoxalock ignition interlock BAIID in all vehicles you own and operate.
If you choose not to get a TRL, you will need to install an Intoxalock interlock system (Car breathalyzer, BAIID or IID) for one year after you are eligible to regain your driving privileges (Usually 12 months after the effective date of your suspension.)
If you are convicted of a third offense OWI or more in Iowa, your license will be revoked for six years. However, you may apply for your Temporary Restricted License immediately, but you will not be eligible for one year. Before you can regain your driving privilege, you must install an Intoxalock ignition interlock device (Car breathalyzer, BAIID, IID or interlock system) on all vehicles you own and operate.
