New law changes process for DUI arrests in Oklahoma beginning November 1

If you want to keep your driver’s license after being arrested for DUI, you now have another option.

Senate Bill 712 takes effect November 1st, giving a new option for drivers looking to keep their license to choose the Impaired Driver Accountability Program instead of an appeal.

The changes also do away with the Implied Consent Hearings with the Department of Public Safety.

Drivers can get into the program and will have to place an interlock device inside the vehicle for the length of time that your license would have been revoked.

“You will agree to put an interlock in your car for that window of time pay them $200 for that opportunity, another $50 for a restricted driver’s license,” said Attorney, Charles Sifers.
