South Carolina Ignition Interlock DUI Laws

South Carolina Interlock Process

South Carolina’s Interlock Program is managed by the State’s Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon. The Ignition Interlock Device (IID) Program receives a list of offenders from SCDMV who are qualified for the program. If you become eligible for the IIDP, you will be notified by IIDP system letter that you are now eligible and may participate in the IIDP. Offenders become eligible once they have satisfied any required suspension period associated with their conviction.
