New Tennessee Law Affects Interlock Program

As a leading ignition interlock device provider, we are committed to providing up-to-date information on state regulations and changes to ignition interlock device requirements.

You may be aware of these new requirements from the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Program, effective January 1, 2023.

Starting on that date, strict violation enforcements of the Tennessee Code Annotated Sections TCA 55-10-417 (d) (3) and TCA 55-10-425 (c) will apply to an offender’s program period if they hold a Code 16 Ignition Interlock Restricted Driver’s License:

  • Removing the devices at any time during the ignition interlock usage period;
  • Failing to return to a service center to have the device calibrated, inspected and downloaded of the data and photos within 30 days; or
  • Tampering with or circumventing the ignition interlock device

Any of the above violations will result in a restart of the entire ignition interlock period.
