After you have successfully completed your program and received your full licence without an Interlock condition, you can book an appointment at one of our Service Centres to have your Interlock Device removed.
It is possible to have your Interlock Device removed early without completing your interlock program. If you wish to take this option, you can book a removal appointment at your service centre and will be asked to complete an Interlock Removal Form. Keep in mind that the interlock condition will not be removed from your licence, and you will not be able to drive any car without an Interlock Device installed.
Although it is expected that you attend scheduled services in person every period, if this is not practical, there will be no sanctions if someone else attends in your place.
After your first month, your servicing period may be extended to 60 days. If you live in a very remote area or perform very well on the program with no violations, this may be extended to 90 days.
If you are moving from NSW to another State or Territory, you will be withdrawing from the NSW Alcohol Interlock Program and have your licence disqualified. Depending of the State or Territory you are moving to, you may or may not be able to get a licence. Discuss your options with the State or Territory to which you are moving.
If you are moving to NSW and wish to convert your interstate interlock licence, you will still have an interlock condition on your new licence. To remove this condition, you will have to participate in the NSW Alcohol Interlock Program.
After you pass the initial test and the engine starts running, the device will continue to request breath samples randomly. The first random retest will occur between 5 – 15 minutes after starting the engine. After this the device will continue to request retests between 15 – 60 minutes after the previous random retest has been passed.
You will be given 10 minutes to safely provide a breath sample after each random/rolling retest is requested.
