Interlock - MVDNow

Interlock

If you were convicted of a DUI, you will need to obtain a special state interlock license before you are able to drive. Your driver’s license must be revoked for an interlock license to be issued. As part if your DWI/DUI interlock license, you’ll have an interlock device installed in your vehicle for a period of one (1) year.

The state interlock license requires a breath-testing device (the interlock) that will require you to give a breath sample before you can start the engine. As you drive, you’ll be occasionally required to provide breath samples as well.
