South Carolina Interlock Process

Get your license back in South Carolina after a DUI

South Carolina’s Interlock Program is managed by the State’s Department of Probation and Parole. The SC Ignition Interlock Device 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.
