In Idaho, if you are caught driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI), your driver's license will be suspended and you will need to purchase SR22 insurance in order to get it back.
SR22 insurance is a special liability policy that establishes an agreement between an insurance company and the State of Idaho. Your insurance company will provide an "SR22 certificate", which proves to the State that you are fully insured. If, for any reason, at any time, you become uninsured, your insurance company will notify the State by filing an SR26 form.
An Idaho DUI SR22 insurance requirement lasts for 3 years, so it's important to find insurance that you can afford.

When your suspension / revocation period is over, you can apply to the Idaho Transportation Department in Boise to get your driver's license reinstated. (Click here for an application.) You will have to pay a reinstatement fee of $245. You will also need to provide an SR22 certificate. (To learn about other ways to provide proof of financial responsibility, call the Idaho Transportation Department at 208-334-8736.)
If this is your first offense DUI, the court may order you to install an ignition interlock device (IID) in your vehicle(s).
If this is your second or subsequent DUI offense within 5 years, the court will order you to install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle(s).
The IID must be installed at the end of your suspension period and used throughout your probation period.
You will be responsible for all the costs associated with the ignition interlock program. There is usually an installation fee, a monthly rental fee, and a removal fee.
