I always felt comfortable talking with customer service. They were very helpful and I never felt judged.”
- Tom, New York Intoxalock driver
New York ignition interlock laws require that any driver convicted of driving while intoxicated (DWI) must install an ignition interlock device on every vehicle they operate. Intoxalock is here to help. We have over 20 years of experience helping people just like you install an ignition interlock or car breathalyzer in New York and get back on the road.
Don’t let the thought of installing an ignition interlock (car breathalyzer, BAIID, IID or interlock system) intimidate you. Our state specialists will help you find a local service center, schedule an installation near your home, answer all of your ignition interlock questions and walk you through the process of regaining your license the fastest way possible.
If you are convicted of a misdemeanor or felony drunk driving charge, including a first offense, you will be required to install and maintain an IID. If convicted of an Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated offense or any repeat alcohol or drug offense within five years, a judge is also required to order the installation of an IID during both the revocation and probation period that follows.
When an IID is ordered by a court, it must be installed on each vehicle you own and operate, and must remain installed for the duration of your IID order. The IID restriction will appear on the back of your driver license document as “interlock device.” The restriction will be added to your driver license record even if your license is revoked.
Leandra’s Law includes two major components; one to toughen the penalties for driving impaired with children in the vehicle and one to require ignition interlocks for those convicted. Under Leandra’s Law, courts are required to impose a period of probation or conditional discharge for anyone convicted of a felony or misdemeanor drunk driving offense. During that period, you will be required to install and maintain an ignition interlock device, for at least 12 months, in any motor vehicle you own or operate.
Additional fees and requirements you may be subject to:
*Required for certain violations that result in a conviction or administrative finding
1. Pay all fines, fees and court costs.
Make sure your vehicle is in working order, including horn, battery and all electrical systems. Make any repairs necessary prior to installing your IID.
If you want to install an IID in a vehicle that is not titled in your name, you will need a notarized affidavit from the vehicle’s owner granting permission.
