If you fail to request an administrative hearing within 20 days of being stopped for DUI or are unsuccessful in challenging your license suspension/revocation at the DOL hearing, you can still apply for an Ignition Interlock License (IIL). This is a temporary license which allows you to drive vehicles equipped with an Ignition Interlock Device. You can also choose to forego a request for an administrative hearing and instead apply for an IIL right away. However, applying for an IIL will waive your right to request an administrative hearing to contest the suspension of your license.

An Ignition Interlock License will allow you to drive all vehicles equipped with an Ignition Interlock Device during the period of suspension/revocation resulting from an alcohol or drug related offense EXCEPT for commercial vehicles. An IIL is available to you if you are eligible and meet the various requirements for an IIL established by the DOL. If you are not eligible, or are not able to meet the requirements for an IIL then you will be forced to wait out the suspension period, obtain SR 22 Insurance, and reinstate your license in order to get your driving privileges back.
