If you're going to participate in the Alcohol Interlock Program, you'll need to visit a service centre and be issued a NSW car, rider, or heavy vehicle licence (whichever is applicable) with an interlock condition.
You can do this once you've completed the necessary disqualification period, attended a medical consultation, and had an interlock device installed on your vehicle.
Note: Learner drivers will only be issued an interlock licence once their driving test has been passed.
To make sure that you have all the information and documentation you need to complete this transaction, please visit Roads and Maritime Services.
