Driving Under the Influence (D.U.I.) Programs
Alameda County DUI Programs
The Alameda County Driving Under the Influence (DUI) Programs can assist individuals in completing court-ordered and DMV requirements and help reduce future DUIs. The DUI Programs will:
- Help explore the relationship with alcohol and/or drugs and understanding of the inherent risks involved
- Promote modified drinking/drug use in high-risk situations, such as driving under the influence
- Provide counseling and education to reduce the likelihood of a repeat DUI offense
- Proactively help with alcohol and/or drug problems to make life affirming choices
Please note: Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, DUI programs are primarily offering services via tele-conference or tele-health, using platforms such as Zoom.

IGNITION INTERLOCK DEVICE (IID) – SB1046
From January 1, 2019 to January 1, 2026, this law mandates repeat offenders for driving under the influence (DUI) and first DUI offenders whose violations resulted in injury, to install an ignition interlock device (IID) for a period ranging from 12 to 48 months. The law also allows those who receive a suspension under the Administrative Per Se law to obtain an IID-restricted driving privilege, and receive credit toward their required IID restriction period if they are later convicted of a DUI. These provisions apply to DUI violations that involve alcohol or the combined use of alcohol and drugs. They do not apply to drug-only violations.
In addition, courts have the discretion to order a non-injury first DUI offender to install an IID for a period of up to 6 months. If the court does not order IID installation, a non-injury first offender may apply for a driver license for IID restrictions or restrictions that allow them to drive to, from, and during their employment and to and from a DUI treatment program for 12 months.
- A first DUI offense that involves no injuries, an offender may choose a six-month IID requirement with full driving privileges, or a one-year restricted license that would allow only driving to and from work if the offender also participates in a treatment program
- For a first DUI offense that also involves an injury, an IID would be required for six months.
- A second DUI offense, an IID would be required for one year
- A third DUI offense, the IID requirement is two years
- A fourth or subsequent DUI offense, the IID requirement is three years
