First Offense Election – Ignition Interlock Device (FOE-IID) Diversion

At the time of arraignment in court, the driver may elect to apply for enrollment in the First Offender Program if he/she has never had a previous or prior conviction or offense for driving under the influence (DUI). If this option is selected, the enrollment will constitute a waiver of the right to a speedy trial. The court will notify the Division of Motor Vehicles. Should a person accept the First Offenders Program, the enrollment will also constitute a waiver to the right to an administrative hearing and any previous request for a hearing will be withdrawn. If a person has accepted the first offense election and has taken a chemical test, they may also elect at that time to participate in the First Offense Election – Ignition Interlock Device (FOE-IID) Diversion program as part of his/her probation. The person must possess a valid Delaware license at the time of the offense in order to qualify for this program.

After the election of the First Offense Election – Ignition Interlock Device (FOE-IID) Diversion the driver may apply for an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) license under the following terms:
