What is an Ignition Interlock Device?

An ignition interlock device (or IID) is a device that the judge makes mandatory for the vehicle that prevents you from driving. The only way to drive the motor vehicle is to pass the built-in breathalyzer that comes with the IID. Once the court orders that you must have one, obtaining and installing it is your responsibility.

To have the device removed, the court must issue a receipt with the court’s official seal and a form signed by the judge or county clerk. To have the interlock requirement removed from your driver’s license, you must file the proper documentation to the Department of Public Safety.

These documents must all include your full name, date of birth, and driver’s license number. These documents can be submitted via mail, email, or fax. You must also include a copy of the suspension notice to help identify your driver record. This process can take up to 21 business days to complete. Once it’s over, you’ll be back on the road with zero restrictions.
