What is a Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device (BAIID)?

A BAIID (Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device) is a breathalyzer installed in your vehicle that tests your breath alcohol concentration (BrAC) before you start your vehicle. If your BrAC is above a certain level, you will not be able to start your vehicle.

Intoxalock Ignition Interlock is a leading state-certified BAIID provider in Illinois. Call (888) 283-5899 today to learn more about the BAIID (ignition interlock device) process.

As required by the Office of The Illinois Secretary of State, you will also have to submit a sample of your BrAC at random intervals while your vehicle is on, commonly referred to as a random retest. This random retest prevents you from operating your vehicle while intoxicated after you’ve already started your vehicle.

Do I need a BAIID for my vehicle?

If you have been arrested for a DUI in the state of Illinois, you may be required to install a BAIID in your vehicle. Depending on your offense, you may need to install a BAIID in order to obtain a Monitoring Device Driving Permit (MDDP), a Restricted Driving Permit (RDP), or as a requirement from a court order. For more information on Illinois BAIID laws, visit our Illinois state requirements page.

How do I install a BAIID on my vehicle?

To install a breath alcohol ignition interlock device on your vehicle, you will first need to have received either your MDDP or RDP from the Office of The Illinois Secretary of State. Once you receive the proper permit, you will be able to schedule a BAIID installation appointment for your vehicle. If you have received a court order to install a BAIID, you will be able to schedule your BAIID installation appointment upon receiving your court order information.
