  • Your driver’s license or Colorado State issued ID card
  • A copy of your DMV record and/or the notice the DMV sent you regarding your mandate to get one of these devices installed on your vehicle.

Q: What happens if I don’t comply with the ignition interlock requirement?

A: People may try to get around having an ignition interlock device in their vehicle various ways. For example, while some people may only install this device in one of the cars they drive (leaving them with another vehicle not equipped with an ignition interlock to drive), they may also attempt to drive their vehicles with alcohol in their systems, they may have others blow into these devices, etc.

If the authorities become aware that a person has not been complying with the terms of his ignition interlock requirement, that individual can have his driver’s license revoked for at least one year.

Q: What do I need to do once my ignition interlock requirement has ended?

A: If you have completed the term of your mandatory ignition interlock requirement, contact the DMV for specific instructions on what you should do to get your driver’s license fully reinstated and the device removed from all of your vehicles.
