There are two periods when one can access Ignition Interlock – before or after conviction. After being charged, but before any conviction is entered, you can apply for access to Ignition Interlock after a minimum period of three months. If you successfully appealed the AALS, you will not need Ignition Interlock at all before trial. If you plead guilty or are found guilty after trial, you may or may not need to wait three months before being able to access Ignition Interlock.
