The money collected by the department under this section shall be transmitted to the treasurer of state who shall deposit one-half of the money in the separate fund established in section 915.94 and one-half of the money in the general fund of the state. A temporary restricted license shall not be issued unless an ignition interlock device has been installed pursuant to section 321J.4 and the civil penalty has been paid. A driver's license or nonresident operating privilege shall not be reinstated unless proof of deinstallation of an ignition interlock device installed pursuant to section 321J.4 has been submitted to the department and the civil penalty has been paid.

a. Enroll, attend, and satisfactorily complete a course for drinking drivers, as provided in section 321J.22.

The court or department may request that the community college conducting the course for drinking drivers which the person is ordered to attend immediately report to the court or department that the person has successfully completed the course for drinking drivers. The court or department may request that the treatment program which the person attends periodically report on the defendant's attendance and participation in the program, as well as the status of treatment or rehabilitation.
A driver's license or nonresident operating privilege shall not be reinstated until proof of completion of the requirements of this subsection is presented to the department.
