Participating in your state's ignition interlock device program in order to get restored driving privileges does not mean a return to "regular driver" status. The license you will be issued is considered a restricted license. Most states will issue you driving privileges with the stipulation that you have the ignition interlock device installed and working properly. There may be other restrictions as well, depending on the nature of your offense and the laws of your state. As always, you will need to comply with the terms of your restricted license to the letter. Anything less can land you in even more trouble than you had to begin with.
