    What is a Smart Start Interlock?

    A Smart Start Alcohol Ignition Interlock is a breathalyser that is wired into the ignition of your vehicle.

    The interlock requires you to pass a breath test before the vehicle will start. 

    The interlock device will collect and store all the data associated with each start,stop, breath test, distance driven etc.  

    Available as a court ordered or voluntary option, please enquire - we are here to help you!

"Once I got over the initial annoyance and embarrassment of having an interlock in my car, I realised what a great thing it was!  I can drive anywhere, anytime, as long as I haven't been drinking."
