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.
Your RDL must be renewed on a yearly basis. A renewal notice and 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 of $125.00. If you have a motorcycle endorsement and wish to keep it, you will need to include an additional $3.00.
Yes. You must also do the following:
- Pay the Reinstatement Fee.
- Provide proof of Financial Responsibility (SR-22 Certificate).
- Provide proof of installation of an approved IID. When you have the IID installed, have the installer complete a Certification of Ignition Interlock Device Installation, VL-082.
You must be under suspension for an alcohol driving offense in Vermont.
Application for an RDL must be made by contacting the Department, by phone, at 802-828-2061.
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
All holders of a Vermont Ignition Interlock Restricted License (RDL) or Ignition Interlock Certificate (IIC) must have a camera-equipped ignition interlock device installed in the vehicle. When contacting an installer (or the manufacturer), you must inform them that Vermont requires a camera-equipped device. If you do not have a camera-equipped device, you will not be allowed to drive the vehicle until a camera-equipped device is installed.
