Are you having trouble completing a breath test for your Ignition Interlock in California because of a medical condition? If you do have a condition such as asthma that is preventing you from comfortably completing an Ignition Interlock test, your state and Smart Start can help! If you go through the right steps to receive approval, your Ignition Interlock company can lower the breath volume of your device. Let’s go over the process to lowering your Ignition Interlock’s breath volume in California.
Lowering Your Ignition Interlock’s Breath Volume in California
In California, your Ignition Interlock company must see proper documentation from your doctor before lowering your device’s breath volume. The first thing you need to do is visit your doctor and explain your situation. The doctor can then write a note that explains your condition and why it prevents you from comfortably completing a breath test, and then he or she needs to sign it.
Once you have this note, call our friendly Customer Care Center at (800) 831-3299. Smart Start’s service agents will walk you through the next steps and will tell you how to submit the note to us. You can also schedule your service appointment at your nearest Smart Start location with our agent, so we can lower the breath volume of your device as quickly as possible. You can provide this note to the DMV or your court if it was requested, too.
And that’s it! If you do have any additional questions, we are available to help with anything related to your Ignition Interlock program at (800) 831-3299.
