When can I get my Ignition Interlock Device (IID) installed?

The reinstatement of driving privileges of a person convicted of an alcohol-related offense is dependent upon the completion of all other conditions and installation of an approved ignition interlock device. LifeSafer is an approved provider in Maine. 

The installation of the car breathalyzer is voluntary for early restoration of your license and is based on the following:

  • One OUI Offense: Reinstated after serving 30 days of the 150-day suspension if an approved ignition interlock device is installed and maintained.
  • Two OUI Offenses: Reinstated after serving 9 months of the 3-year suspension if an approved ignition interlock device is installed and maintained.
  • Three OUI Offenses: Reinstated after serving 3-years of the 6-year suspension if an approved ignition interlock device is installed and maintained.
  • Four OUI Offenses: Reinstated after serving 4-years of the 8-year suspension if an approved ignition interlock device is installed and maintained.

What are the steps to license recovery in Maine?

If you were charged with an OUI in Maine and are required to have an interlock device, the features and required length of your interlock will be determined by The State of Maine’s ignition interlock program. A person who qualifies for restoration with an ignition interlock device: 

  • must file a petition
  • pay the $50 application fee
  • receive written approval from the Secretary of State prior to IID installation
