How Much Does an Ignition Interlock Cost?

Typically an ignition interlock costs less than $3 per day.


How much you will pay for an ignition interlock device depends on where you live and which provider you choose.  At LifeSafer, we believe in providing premium customer service and reliable, discrete ignition interlock devices at an affordable price.

Each state regulates the cost of ignition interlocks. Generally, an interlock costs around $2 to $2.50 per day to use. Fees are paid monthly but calculated on a daily basis, so you only pay per day.  In addition to monthly monitoring fees, there are installation costs, lock out fees and administrative fees.  Make sure to ask about these fees.  Any provider that does not provide a quote when you ask for one should be avoided.  Some providers will only give an estimate of installation fees.  That can lead to surprises.  Make sure you confirm how much you need to pay at the time of installation and what forms of payment are accepted.   There’s no reason to pay anything before you interlock is installed.   There is also no need for automatic billing or keeping credit cards on file.  Avoid unexpected charges and choose a provider who is upfront about costs.


Some states offer financial assistance for those who need help in paying their ignition interlock fees. The easiest way to find out if you qualify is to call LifeSafer at 1-800-634-3077.


When choosing an interlock it’s vital that you look at the entire charge you’ll be paying. Some interlock companies lure you in with misleading “free” up-front offers. But then you’re hit with hidden fees month after month.

Here are some hidden fees you could encounter from some interlock providers – but never LifeSafer:
