What Is The Ignition Interlock?

The Ignition Interlock Device (IID) is a machine installed in your car that prevents the car from starting if you have had any alcohol to drink.

There are two ways to make use of the IID. You can (1) apply to the DMV for a permit, or (2) you can be required by the judge at your sentencing hearing to apply for an ignition interlock permit and have an ignition interlock device installed on any motor vehicle you operate during the revocation period.

Either way, you must pay the DMV $45 for the Ignition Interlock Permit (IIP) and you must pay the interlock company for the cost of installation and monitoring. Refer to ignition interlock companies’ websites for details on costs.
