FAQs

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.

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.

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 regular 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.  If granted an RDL, you must adhere to all of the terms and requirements associated with an RDL; failing to do so will result in an extension of your IID requirements.  For more information regarding RDL's click here.
