How Long Will I Have An Ignition Interlock Device Installed In My Vehicle?


Someone with a first offense DUI is looking at having an ignition interlock installed for six months. If it’s a very high alcohol level, it will usually trigger a nine-month DUI School, which means you may have to have the device for nine or 10 months. If it’s a multiple offense, you may have to have the device for upwards of up two or three years, depending on your priors.

What Is The Approximate Cost Of Installing an Ignition Interlock Device In Your Vehicle?

Installation of an ignition interlock device can cost anywhere from free to $300. Some companies will allow you to pay a monthly fee for it, which is usually less than $100 a month. Your alternative is to not drive. The Department of Motor Vehicles may have programs for low-income individuals to get the interlock at a cheaper rate.

You want to find a reputable company that is close enough that you can get the car there quickly. I would highly recommend checking with your DUI lawyer, who will be able to give you an idea of which companies clients have not had complaints about and which ones caused problems. Saving money may not always be a good thing, depending on what you are getting for that money.
