The Alcohol Interlock Program is a penalty which can be applied for a range of drink driving offences. It involves the installation of an electronic breath testing device to the ignition of a car. The driver must blow into the device, and given the results of this testing, the car will turn on or be disabled.

Where a court convicts a person of an alcohol-related offence and disqualifies that person from holding a driver licence, the court may order that the disqualification be suspended if the person participates in an interlock program for a specific minimum period.
