Interlock Device Florida

When do you need a Florida Interlock Device?

You will need a Florida Interlock Device before reinstatement of your driver license if you were convicted of DUI or DWI and the court ordered it.  Generally, for a first offense DUI, the court will require the interlock device in Florida if your blood alcohol level was greater than 0.15 or if you had a minor in the car.   See chart for more specifics.

The court will require you to install an interlock device in Florida if you apply for a restricted license for work or business purposes.


You will need to bring proof of installation of the ignition interlock device in Florida, as well as your FR44 Florida Insurance to the Florida Driver License Service Center (DMV) .  You can watch this video - Sam explains the steps required to reinstate your driver license in one of his first videos.
