What do I need to get my IID installed in Texas?

What do I need to get my IID installed in Texas?

What to do after a DWI can be confusing. Intoxalock is here to help. This article outlines the steps you need to take and the information you should have ready to provide when you schedule your Intoxalock ignition interlock device installation. 

Do I need to have my state approval before scheduling my install?

In most Texas counties, you do not need to have state approval to schedule your device installation. However, if you are being required to have a car breathalyzer device in Tarrant County, or a home monitoring device in Travis County, you will need your state paperwork on hand. For all other circumstances, you can expedite your IID process by having it installed as soon as possible if your conviction requires it.

When will my IID start counting towards my required time?

Your IID fulfillment period will begin once your device is installed and the state monitoring authority records that you have the device. 

How long is the device required?

Each persons’ required time for having the IID for driving will depend on legal details of their conviction. For most Texas convictions, the requirement period falls within a 12 month to 2 year range.

What information do I need to provide to schedule my Intoxalock installation? 

You will need to provide your basic identifying information – the same information that appears on your Texas driver’s license - including your legal name and address. You will also need to provide the name of the county that is requiring your IID installation. 

If you have any pretrial, probation or bond circumstances that will need to receive copies of your reporting, you will need to provide those details to your Intoxalock representative. 

For a price quote for your installation and your IID lease, you will need to provide the information about the vehicle(s) make, model, and year for all vehicles you are having your device(s) installed on. 

You will also need to provide the payment information to set up your installation. Intoxalock has secure safety protocols in place to protect your personal data.
