South Australian Mandatory Alcohol Interlock Scheme (SA MAIS)

The Interlock Program helps drivers to regain their license after being disqualified for a DUI offence. The program is administered by the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI). Smart Start Australia is an approved alcohol interlock supplier for the South Australian mandatory alcohol interlock scheme.

Completing the Program & Removal Process

If the device records no BAC violations in the final 3 months of the program, your interlock device can be removed. If the device records one BAC violation you may still be eligible for removal of interlock depending on approval from the registrar. If 2 or more BAC violations are detected the interlock device will not be removed. You will be informed of the expected length the program will be extended for.
