    Default Ignition Interlock License Laws in Pennsylvania

    I received my 1st Restorations Requirement Letter on 12/03/09 which did not require me to obtain an Ignition Interlock License at that time.I sent everything in as required and 3 weeks later received a 2nd letter stating I had to obtain a Ignition Interlock.My DUI occurred in Pennsylvania on Aug 30th of 2003 when ACT 63 was still in effect with the ''OPT OUT'' option.I served the additional voluntary 12 month suspension of my license in 2008 thru 2009 for a total of 24 months suspension believing that I would be excluded from the 1 year mandatory ignition interlock program.My question is can the state of Pennsylvania still legally require me to obtain an ignition interlock license even though my DUI occurred before Sept 30th 2003 when the new ACT 24 law was signed into law?(ACT 24 LAW - Ignition Interlock
    Drivers who receive a second or subsequent DUI violation on or after September 30, 2003, can no longer serve an additional one year suspension in lieu of obtaining an ignition interlock device. Drivers are required to install ignition interlock on all vehicles owned (including leased) before driving privileges can be restored.

    I served the additional voluntary 12 month suspension of my license in 2008 thru 2009 for a total of 24 months suspension believing that I would be excluded from the 1 year mandatory ignition interlock program.
    How did you serve this time? PennDOT requires you to get the ignition interlock license even if you have no plans on driving during that time. If you did not apply for and get the license you did not get credit for the "OPT OUT" time served.

    You need to contact one of the interlock installer centers at the following number to get a certification that there are no vehicles registered in your name.

    KeystoneSmartstart.com .................................................. .....................................1-800-880-3394
    PA Interlock, Ultimate Protection, Inc. .................................................. ...............1-866-718-8606
    Draeger Interlock, Inc. .................................................. ........................................1-800-332-6858
    Consumer Safety Technology, Inc. .................................................. ....................1-877-777-5020
    Interlock Systems of Pennsylvania, Inc............................................... ................1-800-452-1739
    National Interlock, Inc. .................................................. ........................................1-866-342-4984
    Alcohol Detection Systems .................................................. .................................1-800-786-7394
    Allegheny County Ignition Interlock Program........................................... ...........1-412-931-6107

    They will charge a fee for administration of this. They will send the proper forms to PennDOT and then PennDOT will issue you a Interlock Limited License.

    You will ONLY be permitted to drive vehicles with the ignition interlock system installed unless you get a waiver for employer owned vehicles. After a year they will send you your full drivers license.

    Hope this cleared things up a little for you.
