We often get this question and the answer is simply yes. A DUI arrest in Washington State can potentially affect your employment status most especially if driving is part of your current job. This includes also if you’re driving to and from work.
The administrative sanctions by the Department of Licensing and court ruling strip you from driving privileges and therefore disallow you from your duties in driving when it comes to your job, including renting a car.
What You Can Do About it
You can apply for an ignition interlock license (IIL). You can drive but only if your vehicle is equipped with an IIL.
This also comes if you have special insurance coverage and has to be applied.
