Special Restricted Driver License (SIIRDL)

Special Restricted Driver License (SIIRDL)

In cases involving driver license suspension/revocation resulting from a DUI-related violation date on or after Feb. 1, 2006, you may be eligible for a special restricted driver license if you have

  • contacted MVD to verify eligibility (or received a notice of eligibility from MVD).
  • no other outstanding withdrawal actions pending on your driving record.
  • installed an ignition interlock on your vehicle *Install must be received electronically by The Department and must be within 30 days of SIIRDL issuance
  • complied with mandatory alcohol treatment programs (if required) and submitted proof of completion to MVD.
  • submitted proof of future financial responsibility to MVD (e.g., certificate of automobile liability insurance known as an SR22).
  • paid all applicable fees.

Please Note: A SIIRDL is voluntary and is not a requirement. IF the SIIRDL is a result of a violation on or after 01/01/2023 it may be credited toward an Ignition Interlock Order on the driver record

A violation during your SIIRDL time may result in a cancelation of your restricted interlock license.

Your SIIRDL will expire the same date as the suspension/revocation that the SIIRDL is attached to.  When your SIIRDL expires, it is against the law for you to continue to drive until you have complied with all state requirements. 

You may also be required to

  • complete a Revocation Application.
  • continue your SR22.
  • continue to maintain a Certified Ignition Interlock Device.
  • reinstate your driving privileges.
  • pay all applicable fees.

Please Note: Have your interlock device installed first and then reinstate your driver license. Specific steps are required to establish a starting point for your required ignition interlock time frame. You can reinstate online or visit an MVD or Authorized Third Party office.
