I need an Ignition Interlock Device. What do I need to do?

When a person has been convicted of an alcohol while driving offence, they may be required to participate in the Alcohol Ignition Interlock Program. You can choose not to participate but you will not be eligible to drive on the road. You can choose not to have an approved Ignition Interlock Device installed on a motor vehicle, but you will only be able to drive after completing a period of after two years of ineligibility.

You must apply for a driver’s license once the disqualification period ends, at The Department of Transport and Main Roads Customer Service Centre. The License will be issued with an “I” condition on it meaning an Interlock is required before you can drive on the road.

Then you will then need to arrange an installation of an interlock device on his/her nominated vehicle by an approved service centre. Springwood Complete Automotive Services is the only approved service agent for the Guardian Interlock Program in Queensland, servicing Coomera, Helensvale, Hope Island, Runaway Bay, Ormeau, Pimpama, Beenleigh, Browns Plains, Logan, Rochedale, Mt Gravatt, Yeronga, Capalaba, Wynnum, weelington point, Cooparroo, Tarragindi, Moorooka, Carindale, Slacks Creek, basicly the area from the Northern Gold Coast to South Brisbane, east to Redland bay and west to Forrest Lake.

To book an appointment for an approved Interlock Device to be installed please call 1300 461 017. You will be responsible to pay for all costs on the installation including the installation, service, violation and removal fees for the interlock device.

Then training will be conducted by the service centre once installation has been completed.
