What is a Failed IID Test in Colorado?

Colorado interlock laws and regulations are very clear when it comes to failed IID tests. If an installed ignition interlock device does not allow your vehicle to be started more than three times within 12 months, it is possible that additional time could be added to your ignition interlock requirement. It is also possible that having three failed tests within that period could place your license into further suspension. The BAC considered for a failed test in the state of Colorado is 0.025 or higher, because this is so low, it is very important to not blow into your interlock device after consuming anything that may have low traces of alcohol in it like kombucha, certain mouthwashes, or even medications like cough syrup. 

If you do happen to fail a test and you believe it was a mistake, it is in your best interest to notify the authorities who manage your post-conviction requirements, as well as your DUI lawyer and your IID provider as soon as possible. Getting in front of an accidentally failed test is the best way to ensure you are not penalized further for a failed test when you were not drinking. 

Penalties for Failing an IID Test in Colorado
