DUI Programs In Alameda County

Alameda County Driving Under the Influence (DUI) Programs assist participants in completing court-ordered and DMV requirements associated with DUI arrests and convictions. The goal of each program is to encourage exploration of the relationship between alcohol/drug use and the risks involved in high-risk situations such as driving, resulting in modified drinking/drug use in these situations. Our programs provide counseling and education to reduce the likelihood of a repeat DUI offense. They help participants with alcohol/drug problems to make life affirming choices, and they link to more comprehensive drug and alcohol treatment systems when warranted.

Licensed DUI programs in Alameda County are monitored by the Alameda County Drug and Alcohol Administrator, and the State Department of Healthcare Services.

Ignition Interlock Device (IID) SB 1046
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
