For Second Offense OWI’s
Restricted Driver's Licenses
for OWI - 2nd Offense
Effective July 1, 2010, individuals who have had their driver’s license suspended for second operating while intoxicated offenses will be eligible for temporary restricted licenses.
temporary license for test failure
The overall license suspensions for failing a test (having a blood alcohol level over the legal limit) will remain the same: 1 year for test “failure”, and the individual will be eligible for a work permit after a 45 day hard suspension.
- 1 year revocation
- 45 Day Hard Suspension - Eligible for restricted license after 45 days hard suspension.
- Must have ignition interlock device installed on all vehicles owned and operated by a person seeking a temporary restricted license.
temporary license for test refusal
The overall license suspension period for refusing to submit to a sobriety test will remain the same: 2 years for test “refusal” but a work permit will now be a possibility after a 90 day hard suspension.
- 2 year revocation
- 90 Day Hard Suspension - Eligible for temporary license after 90 days and must have ignition interlock device.
Application for work permit
Application for the work permit must be made to the Iowa Department of Transportation after the hard suspension time is up. The individual is still required to file proof of SR-22 insurance, install an ignition interlock device, and pay a civil penalty of $200. The verification form must also be completed by an employer. Unlike other restricted licenses, the work permit for second offenses is only for traveling to and from work. There is no provision for secondary education, medical appointments or probation appointments. It is simply to get to and from work.

free initial consultation
If you or someone you care about has been arrested for drunk driving or an intoxication related offense, remember that an arrest is not a conviction; there are many, many reasons why an OWI charge may be wrong. If the driver doesn't believe that he or she was drunk, that very well may be the case; breathalyzers can malfunction. There are also many other reasons for improper drunk driving accusations. We know, we find them all the time.
