Washington Ignition Interlock

Repeat DUI offenses, and DUIs involving injury or death, require you to apply for a Washington ignition interlock license (IIL). You’ll also have to install an IID monitoring device in your car that strictly limits when and how often you can drive. When the state requires you to obtain an IIL and install IID equipment, you’ll also need to purchase a Washington SR22 insurance certificate.

To gain restricted driving privileges after a DUI conviction, you’ll have to obtain a Washington ignition interlock driver license (IIL). You’ll also have to install an ignition interlock device in the vehicle you drive and get SR22 insurance.

How do I get Washington Ignition Interlock License?

You can apply for an ignition interlock license any time after a Washington DUI arrest. You need to have a residential address in the state of Washington and a current Washington driver’s license. Your arrest or conviction must be for motor vehicle violations involving:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Reckless or careless driving
  • Vehicular homicide or vehicular assault

Installing and maintaining a Washington ignition interlock device is expensive. If you own more than one vehicle, you’ll want to install the equipment in just one car and drive only that vehicle. You may be eligible for financial assistance if you meet Washington State poverty guidelines.

The Washington DOL website has many more details about the Ignition Interlock Driver License and IID. It outlines requirements, when and how to apply, the application process, fees, costs, and other useful information.
