(1) An applicant for an ignition interlock limited license
shall file a petition with the department, by certified
mail, on a form prescribed by the department, and shall
include proof that an approved ignition interlock system,
as defined in section 3801, has been installed in one or
more motor vehicles that the applicant seeks permission
to operate.3
(2) The petition shall also include proof of financial
responsibility covering each vehicle the applicant
requests to be permitted to operate. The department
shall promulgate regulations to require additional
information as well as additional evidence to verify the
information contained in the petition.
(3) The applicant shall surrender the applicant's driver's

Needless to say there are other provisions of SB 290 that
cover a wide range of changes including penalties for violating
the IILL. I am sure the reader can look up SB 290 and get the
full impact of this new law. Good luck with your research.

(c) Fee.--The application fee for an ignition interlock limited
license shall be $65. This fee shall be nonrefundable.
It is unclear if the creation of the IILL will be retroactive so that current violators can apply for it.
This is very new. How will an out of state driver qualify for this license if her/his state also suspends the driving privileges of the person?
This is a departure from the concept that an individual should have the ability of becoming licensed in order to qualify for the IILL. Under a due process argument
this could preclude an individual from ever getting driving privileges reinstated.
