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.
What you need
- your proof of identity
- payment for any licence fees, or your concession card (if applicable)
- the PDF forms:
- 'Licence Application'
- 'Interlock Driver Licence Statement and Privacy Declaration'
- 'Interlock Installation Certificate', completed by you and your accredited interlock service provider
