Ignition Interlock installation in Virginia

How do I get a route restricted driver’s license in Virginia?

Some drivers may be eligible for a restricted license, which allows them to drive to approved locations like work, home, school, treatment, and medical appointments. Virginia courts and/or the Department of Motor Vehicles require the installation of an ignition interlock device, or IID, for DUI offenses. In some cases, installation of an IID from an approved installer, such as Intoxalock Virginia, allows the driver to regain some of their driving privileges. This can be requested at the time of conviction, or drivers can petition the court or the DMV, depending on who officially revoked the privilege.

  • Fill out the application for a restricted license
  • Pay the license fee and any related fines
  • Show proof of SR-22 insurance
  • Complete any necessary jail time, community service, or mandatory treatment
  • Fulfill suspension period
