Ignition Interlock Installation Locations in the United States
What is Ignition Interlock Installation?
Ignition interlock installation is the process by which you have an IID device, or ignition interlock device, installed in your vehicle. These devices help to prevent drunk driving. They also help to restore some freedoms back to you while you serve our license suspension and/or probation periods after a DUI or DWI conviction. The IID is attached to your ignition and won’t start unless you take and pass a BAC test, otherwise known as a breathalyzer. Typically, you must have the ignition interlock installation completed on any car you’re going to drive during the period under which your driving privileges are restricted.
State Laws Regarding Ignition Interlock Installation
Each state has different laws that dictate whether or not you’re eligible for an ignition interlock device. In most states, even your first DUI or DWI conviction will result in a license suspension of some length. Often, you’re able to install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle to restore some of your driving privileges while you’re serving out your suspension. In some states you’ll need to serve some time of your suspension before you’re allowed to drive on a restricted ignition interlock license. Check with your attorney to find out what specific regulations and restrictions apply to your case.

We don’t believe in installation only. We want you to succeed and to get through the IID program as painlessly as possible.
