When you get your Ignition Interlock installed, your Smart Start shop will tell you that you’ll need to visit them for a calibration appointment.
What Are Calibration Appointments for My Ignition Interlock?
Calibration appointments are crucial to your Ignition Interlock program. When you arrive at your shop for your appointment date, the technician will ‘refresh’ your Interlock, ensuring it is still working properly for you. Calibrations also mean your Interlock’s data is going into our database, which means your Interlock is being adjusted to perform and ensure utmost accuracy while you’re testing.
How Often Do I Need to Visit My Smart Start Shop?
Every 30 days (60 in some states), you’ll return to one of our locations for a calibration appointment. The Interlock’s data will download and the Device will also refresh. You also make your next payment.
Calibration appointments usually only take about 15 minutes. Our shops’ details and contact information can be found on our website.
How Can I Check When My Next Calibration Date Is?
There’s an easy method to check your next appointment date right from your Device! Just press the pound sign and then 1 on your keypad. This information can also be found on your receipt from your previous service appointment.
Should you have any questions about your appointment, our Customer Care Center is open 24/7/365 to assist you. Just call us at 800-831-3299 and we will be able to answer any of your questions.
