Restricted Driving Permit (RDP)
A BAIID is required as a condition of receiving a Restricted Driving Permit for a person who has two or more DUI convictions; or two statutory summary suspensions (as a result of two DUI arrests); or one DUI conviction with a statutory summary suspension from a separate DUI arrest. A BAIID is also required as a condition of receiving a RDP for a person who was convicted of aggravated DUI and was involved in an accident that resulted in death, great bodily harm or permanent disability or disfigurement. An RDP allows a person to drive on a restricted basis according to his/her permit.
Obtaining a RDP
- To obtain an RDP, the offender must prove a hardship exists, provide a current professional alcohol/drug evaluation and, when appropriate, provide proof of remedial education or treatment.
- An offender must appear before a hearing officer in the Secretary of State's Department of Administrative Hearings. The driving record is reviewed to ensure that the driver would not threaten public safety if allowed to drive on a limited basis.
- An offender with two or more alcohol-related driving incidents on his/her driving record is required to have a BAIID installed on his/her vehicle for the duration of the RDP. The offender is responsible for all costs associated with the BAIID during this period.
- An offender requesting a formal hearing for an RDP or reinstatement of his/her driving privileges will be charged a $50 nonrefundable filing fee when requesting the formal hearing.
- A driver under age 16 whose driving privileges are revoked is not eligible for an RDP.
