Avoid License Suspension Let Us Help You Apply for an IIL

Ignition Interlock License (IIL)

How does the ignition interlock license work?

An Ignition Interlock Driver License (IIL) allows you to drive vehicles equipped with an ignition interlock device (IID) when your regular license is suspended for Driving Under the Influence (DUI). Recent changes that became effective in January 2009 in Washington State allow for someone with a suspended to apply for an IIL.

The IID is a device that is attached to a vehicle's ignition for the purpose of monitoring the driver's blood alcohol level. The device works by the driver blowing into the device in order to get it to start. If the device measures alcohol in the blood, it will not start. Even while driving, you may be required to blow into the device to keep the vehicle running.

There are certain restrictions that apply in order to qualify for this type of license, which a Lynnwood criminal defense attorney can discuss with you.

The IID must be installed on any vehicle the driver convicted of a DUI will be driving, even if it is a work vehicle (unless your employer signs a waiver from the DOL). In addition, if anyone else shares the vehicle with the convicted driver, they will have to go through the procedure of using the device as well, as the device has no way of identifying different drivers.

The amount of time this device may be required to remain on your vehicle can range anywhere from 90 days to ten years, depending on your prior driving history. There are many factors that affect the use of this license, including when it might be required at work or if there were to be a malfunction of the device.
