Ignition Interlock License

Upon an alcohol related DUI conviction, and after you have served the license suspension imposed because of the conviction, you must apply for an “ignition interlock license” that allows you to drive only a vehicle with an ignition interlock installed. The ignition interlock is a breath testing device that is attached to the ignition wiring in your car by a Washington State Patrol certified installer. It prevents your car from starting if you have alcohol on your breath above .025, although a judge can order a lower setting.
