About the Mandatory Alcohol Interlock Program (MAIP)

If you're on the MAIP, a breath testing device (interlock) will be connected to your vehicle's ignition and an I-Condition will be placed on your licence.

This means you must:

  • only drive a vehicle that has been fitted with an approved interlock
  • provide a breath test each time you start your car
  • have a blood alcohol content of 0.00 to operate your car, and
  • have your interlock regularly serviced with your service provider.

Transport Services provides a full MAIP guide (PDF, 1.3MB), including information on how to complete the Program successfully so you can get your driver licence back.
