Can I Disguise My Ignition Interlock?
Are you wondering if you can disguise your Ignition Interlock somehow because of the embarrassment of having a device? There are some companies who sell disguise options, such as a big soda cup, that will fit over your device and still allow you to take your test. This may seem convenient, but remember that Ignition Interlock tests like Smart Start’s only take seconds. Taking a test is so fast that no one passing by would be the wiser!
But if you are still interested in buying a ‘shell’ for your Ignition Interlock, be cautious. Let’s go over why below.
If I Disguise My Ignition Interlock, Is It Worth It?
Is Disguising My Ignition Interlock Allowed?
Make sure that disguising your Ignition Interlock is allowed in your state, and that it does not impede how your device operates. If it does hinder your Ignition Interlock, that will just leave you with more of a headache than it’s worth.
Will a Disguise Fit My Ignition Interlock?
Some of these disguises do not allow a gap for the curly cord that connects to your device. And there is nothing that can be done to hide you taking a test from your passenger, whether it’s in a flamboyantly-decorated soda cup or your regular device.
Disguising an Ignition Interlock Does Not Meet Federal Standards
Smart Start does not offer disguises for our Ignition Interlocks because they have not been tested under federal standards to see if they will perform successfully while contained. We want our clients to experience the most seamless Ignition Interlock program, so every decision we make has you and your convenience in mind.
The additional cost of a disguised cup and then the possibility of it hindering how your device works may cause a stressful experience. (Some ‘cup’ or ‘soda’ disguises can run up to $30-$60!)
All in all, you may want to take the safe route and use your Ignition Interlock on how it was intended to perform. Not only that, but Smart Start will provide devices that are small, fast and discreet. Our Ignition Interlock can fit snug in the palm of your hand, and allows you to drive again to get back to your life.
