April 25, 2008, Newsletter Issue #112: Requirements for Participation in an Ignition Interlock Program

Tip of the Week

State laws vary, but California has a program similar to other states including Connecticut. The rules regarding the California DMV and ignition interlock devices includes a mandatory period where your license has been revoked. If you failed a breath alcohol test and received a suspended license as part of the conviction, California state law stipulates that you serve at least half the revoked or suspended license period before you can be eligible for the ignition interlock system. Other state laws may vary, but expect that you will need to serve out at least some of the suspension period and comply with any court ordered programs and counseling to be eligible.
