Serve any required suspension period. You must have a valid registration for every vehicle on which an interlock will be installed.
Fill out an Ignition Interlock Device Installation Application (P-246) form and mail with the $100.00 administration fee and a check or money order for the restoration fee of $175.00, payable to the Department of Motor Vehicles, Driver Services Division, 60 State Street, Wethersfield, Connecticut 06161-2525.
Once your application is approved, the form will be mailed back to you, along with another form authorizing the installation.
Call LifeSafer Ignition Interlock at 800-634-3077 to schedule your ignition interlock installation. Ask about offers and money saving discounts. Bring both forms with you to your appointment.
Once the interlock has been installed, return the P-246 form confirming the installation(s) to the DMV at the above address, so the DMV can verify the installation.
After your operator’s license is restored, a final approval letter and restoration notice will be mailed. You must obtain a valid license or Adult Learner’s Permit.
An interlock is about $3 per day on average. What you are paying for goes beyond the device, however. Our IIDs are tested and calibrated for accuracy before ever going out the door. Our customer service and reporting specialists are also part of LifeSafer’s value to customers. Your local authorized Connecticut installation center is constantly updating their training and calibration service so your program runs smoothly and we can install an interlock on any vehicle. There is a lot riding on your device working properly and LifeSafer invests in accuracy and ease of use.
