(a) The commissioner shall issue a class
D driver's license, subject to the applicable limitations and restrictions of this section,
to a program participant who meets the requirements of this section and the program
guidelines. The commissioner shall not issue a license unless the program participant has
provided satisfactory proof that:

(1) a certified ignition interlock device has been installed on the participant's motor
vehicle at an installation service center designated by the device's manufacturer; and

(2) the participant has insurance coverage on the vehicle equipped with the ignition
interlock device. The commissioner shall require the participant to present an insurance
identification card, policy, or written statement as proof of insurance coverage, and may
require the insurance identification card provided be certified by the insurance company to
be noncancelable for a period not to exceed 12 months.

(b) A license issued under authority of this section must contain a restriction
prohibiting the program participant from driving, operating, or being in physical control of
any motor vehicle not equipped with a functioning ignition interlock device certified by
the commissioner. A participant may drive an employer-owned vehicle not equipped with
an interlock device while in the normal course and scope of employment duties pursuant
to the program guidelines established by the commissioner and with the employer's
written consent.

(c) A program participant whose driver's license has been: (1) revoked under

a licensed chemical dependency treatment or rehabilitation program and one year of limited
license use without violating the ignition interlock restriction, the conditions of limited
license use, or program guidelines, the participant may apply for conditional reinstatement
of the driver's license, subject to the ignition interlock restriction. If the program
participant's ignition interlock device subsequently registers a positive breath alcohol
concentration of 0.02 or higher, the commissioner shall cancel the driver's license, and the
program participant may apply for another limited license according to this paragraph.

(e) Notwithstanding any statute or rule to the contrary, the commissioner has
authority to determine when a program participant is eligible for restoration of full driving
privileges, except that the commissioner shall not reinstate full driving privileges until the
program participant has met all applicable prerequisites for reinstatement under section
169A.55 and until the program participant's device has registered no positive breath
alcohol concentrations of 0.02 or higher during the preceding 90 days.
