If you have been convicted of DUI and been granted a restricted license, you must have an ignition interlock device installed on your vehicle and have it properly calibrated each month. You must then provide proof of the installation to the ASAP program where you are enrolled. What happens if you have to drive a company vehicle as part of your job? Is your boss required to install an ignition interlock device on the company vehicle so that you can drive it?
The short answer is no. If you are granted a restricted license to drive for work, your employer can ask the court to allow you to drive the company vehicle. Courts will generally grant such requests as long as the request is properly documented. However, the court cannot grant a request to drive school vehicles, such as a school bus, or any commercial vehicle. Also, the court will not grant the request if you wholly or partially own the business.
