Once you get the hang of a Smart Start Ignition Interlock though, it’ll be a breeze! You also have 24/7/365 support from our friendly Customer Care Center at (800) 831-3299. But let’s go into more detail on how to stay on top of your Ignition Interlock tests to ensure a successful program.
Staying on Top of Your Ignition Interlock Tests
It’s important to stay on top of these Ignition Interlock tests to ensure you don’t miss one accidentally. You may know that your Smart Start Ignition Interlock Device prompts for a test through sounds so you can easily tell when it’s time to take a test. You need to keep in mind that there is the initial breath test to start your vehicle, and then there are random running retests throughout your driving trip.
There may be a case where you need to quickly stop by a restaurant to pick up some food. When you leave your running car, keep in mind that your Ignition Interlock is still operating within your vehicle because the vehicle is still on! Keep your visits or pick-ups brief in order to not miss a breath test if you are going to leave your vehicle running. Bottom line: when you are leaving your vehicle, remember to check that your Ignition Interlock Device is not prompting for a test!
Another tip to remember is that your Smart Start Ignition Interlock will show a countdown of time remaining for your breath test on the screen. It’s important to keep yourself informed and check your device’s screen when you park safely before you leave your vehicle. If you ever have any questions, you can always call our Customer Care Center who is standing by to help at (800) 831-3299.
