Ignition Interlock Program Rules

1. Definitions.

For the purposes of these rules, the following definitions apply:

(a) “Alcohol set point” means the minimum alcohol concentration at which an ignition interlock device is set to lock a motor vehicle’s ignition. That level shall be 0.02 BAC.

(b) “Certified laboratory” means a laboratory which subscribes to the quality code of the International Standards Organization of the American National Standards Institute.

(c) “Commissioner” means the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles.

How do I get my unrestricted license back after I serve the required period of time of operating under the terms and requirements of an RDL?

The RDL Unit will send a letter a short time prior to your actual release date advising you of when you may procure a corrected license without the IID restriction.  If you do not receive a letter you may contact DMV at 802-828-2061 to verify that you are eligible to have the interlock removed.

How often do I need to renew my RDL?

Your RDL must be renewed on a yearly basis.  A renewal notice, along with an Application for Ignition Interlock Device Restricted Driver’s License will be mailed to you 30 days before your RDL expires.  You will need to complete the application and return it to DMV with the appropriate renewal fee.  If you do not renew your RDL on or by the expiration, you will be issued a suspension for failing to renew your RDL, and will remain under suspension until you renew your RDL and pay the Reinstatement Fee.

What is an Ignition Interlock Device Restricted Driver’s License?

An Ignition Interlock Device Restricted License, referred to as an “RDL”, allows you to drive  non-commercial vehicles equipped with an ignition interlock device, while your Vermont license is suspended or revoked for an alcohol-related driving under the influence offense.  You are granted a conditional reinstatement ahead of your normal eligibility date if you participate in the Ignition Interlock Program
