Ignition Interlock License

Understand the Guidelines

If you have been convicted of driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs, your driver's license has probably been suspended or revoked. An ignition Interlock license enables you to legally drive your car after an ignition interlock device has been installed. An ignition interlock device prevents a person from starting their vehicle if they have been drinking. The driver must blow into the device before turning on the vehicle's engine. If the device detects alcohol, the driver will be unable to start the car. A person must also "blow" into the device at various intervals while driving to prevent the consumption of alcohol.

To qualify for an ignition interlock license (IIL), a person must have had their driver's license suspended because of a DUI conviction or department of licensing administrative suspension.

You must complete the following steps:

  • Step 1: Get SR22 insurance.
  • Step 2: Install a functioning Interlock Suspension device.
  • Step 3: Fill out the Department of Licensing application.

An IIL will not be issued if the suspension or revocation involved reckless driving, a minor in possession, or the person was a habitual traffic offender. A Lynnwood DUI attorney can explain the guidelines for an IIL in more detail, and provide any additional assistance needed in your DUI case.
