Kentucky Ignition Interlock & DUI Laws

Interlock Process

If you have not completed the alcohol treatment classes prior to the completion of the IID program, your license will be suspended until the required classes have been completed.

How do I get an interlock license?

  • Complete the Ignition Interlock Application (available online, at a Kentucky Division of Driver Licensing Regional Field Office, or the One Stop Shop) and submit at a Division of Driver Licensing Regional Field Office or the One Stop Shop with the following documents: Proof of Kentucky insurance, Proof of Kentucky registration along with a notarized letter from the owner (if the vehicle(s) to be driven is/are not registered in the applicant’s name) and a $105.00 non-refundable fee (credit/debit card, certified/cashier’s check, or money order made payable to the Kentucky State Treasurer).
