      The FL Ignition Interlock Program

      Florida ignition interlock law says that drivers charged with DUI may have to install an IID in certain situations. While anyone caught committing an alcohol-related driving offense will have their license suspended or revoked for a court-ordered period, some can drive if they obtain a hardship permit and install a Florida interlock device. Drivers are also subject to fines, and possible prison time, depending on the severity of the offense and if they have previously been convicted of DUI.

      Some offenders may be eligible for a hardship permit if they meet certain criteria. If a driver has two DUI convictions, they may not be eligible for a permit. Anyone with a permit must install an ignition interlock device.
