You will require this licence if you intend to become an approved provider of alcohol ignition interlock systems to vehicles as part of your business operations. An alcohol interlock is a breath-testing device that is connected to a vehicle's ignition and stops a driver starting a vehicle (known as a Lockout) if they have been drinking alcohol.
To become an approved provider you must be contracted by the relevant authority, which will allow you to:
- Provide interlocks to be installed in motor vehicles and motorcycles;
- Establish, operate or maintain services centres where interlocks can be installed, tested, maintained, repaired, adjusted, serviced or removed;
- Download monitoring data (information recorded by an interlock) as part of a service or removal of an interlock device; and
- Prepare a performance report as part of a servicing procedure that includes information about monitoring data collected or the effects of any software updates on the unit.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
