You will need an ignition interlock device if you are convicted of DUI or enter into the Deferred Prosecution program.  You will also need an IID if you have a prior DUI arrest - and such a requirement starts immediately following your first court appearance in Whatcom County.

It is imperative you talk to your Bellingham attorney before having an alcohol evaluation.  I cannot emphasize this enough.  You can find more information on our alcohol | drug evaluation page.  In this mean time the following is a list of treatment providers which we recommend where you can obtain an alcohol | drug evaluation and, if necessary complete treatment or the ADIS class.

In Washington State law enforcement must tow your vehicle if you have been arrested for DUI. They must also keep your vehicle for 12 hours. Once the 12 hours has passed however, the priority is to get your vehicle back. The following are the three tow truck companies where your vehicle may have been towed to in Whatcom County.


If you have been kept in the Whatcom County Jail following your arrest for DUI, getting out is a priority. Contact one of the following Bellingham Bail Bonds companies for immediate help in getting out of Jail.

If you are convicted of a DUI (or your license was suspended in the administrative hearing) you will be required to obtain SR-22 automobile liability insurance for a period of at least three years.
