Ignition Interlock Installation

If you have a court order for an interlock ignition, your first thought is likely, “Where can I find interlock device installation near me”?

You need your device installed sooner rather than later, so you can stay compliant and keep driving. We want your interlock installation to go smoothly, so you’ll need to prepare in advance for your appointment. Here are a few things you need to know when scheduling your interlock installation.

How to Prepare for Your Ignition Interlock Installation?

  1. Do I Need to Do Anything to My Car Ahead of Time?

    Your car should be in good working order. This includes the horn, battery, and all electrical systems. If your vehicle needs any repairs, please have them completed before your interlock installation.

  2. What Happens During the Interlock Installation Appointment?

    1. Mechanical and electrical vehicle inspection will be completed.
    2. An ignition interlock will be installed in your vehicle.
    3. Paperwork will have to be filled out. In some states, we can help you submit your paperwork.
    4. Fees will need to be paid.

  3. What Do I Need to Bring to My Interlock Installation?

    1. Valid photo ID (Driver’s License, Military ID, or Passport)

    3. Any documents about your case (court order)
    4. If your driving privileges have been revoked, you’ll need to have someone drive your car to your appointment.
