Interlock & DUI Laws

Interlock Process

Your license is taken until the court hearing date. Trials take place 60 days at the earliest. Upon conviction, your license is suspended for 30, 60 or 90 days up one year or longer, based on the severity of the charge. Do not drive while your license is suspended.

How do I get an interlock license?

  • Thirty days prior to your restoration eligibility date, PennDOT will mail you a Restoration Requirements Letter. You can also log in the PennDOT website and access your restoration requirements letter. This letter includes an application for the ignition interlock license. You should complete the application for the Ignition Interlock License and send it to PennDOT as quickly as possible.

  • Call LifeSafer Ignition Interlock at 800-634-3077 to schedule your ignition interlock installation. Ask about discounts and special offers!

  • Bring current registration to the installation. If you’re not the registered owner, the owner will need to be at the installation, or you will need a notarized permission slip from the owner saying that it’s okay to install the interlock. Bring proof of insurance and the Restoration Requirements letter from PennDOT and Form DL-21SC form (Self-Certification of Vehicle(s) Owned/Operated).

  • Once the installation is complete and the service provider has filled out the form, fax it to LifeSafer at 855-282-6357 or scan the completed form and email it to [email protected] LifeSafer will verify the information against the PennDOT vehicle database. Once we determine that you either don’t own any vehicles or that the device has been installed on all applicable vehicles, the information is sent to PennDOT.

  • If the restoration requirements have been met and the application for the Ignition Interlock License was received, PennDOT will restore your driving privilege and issue your Ignition Interlock License.

Interlock Cost

How much does an interlock cost in Pennsylvania?

Pennsylvania drivers can expect to pay about the national average ($3 per day) for an ignition interlock device (IID), also known as a car breathalyzer.

It’s good to be thrifty, of course, but the cheapest car breathalyzer is not necessarily going to be the best value. When shopping for one in the keystone state, you must ask yourself about the quality of the device, the quality and availability of installation centers, and what kind of customer service you are getting.

Lifesafer IIDs are carefully tested in the factory. Before we send them out the door, we test our interlocks for accuracy and calibrate for perfect precision.

Your local Pennsylvania installation center is staffed with experienced technicians who are trained to install an interlock on your vehicle no matter what you drive.

When you set your program up with LifeSafer, you have access to support staff that are dedicated to making it a success. Our customer service and reporting specialists have your back 24/7 in case any issues arise.

We know how crucial this is to you. That’s why we are committed to providing you with a great product, customer support you can trust, and pro installation so that your device works right 100% of the time.
