Drivers who are deaf or hard of hearing have access to the same quality Ignition Interlock program as all of our clients. That’s just one reason why we’re the top choice for Ignition Interlock: No one serves their clients with more care and accommodation.
Modifications help deaf or hard of hearing drivers
Typically, an Ignition Interlock makes a beeping sound to prompt for a random retest. However, the external LED flashes so that clients who are deaf or hard of hearing know that it’s time for a random retest.
Never keep rolling during a random retest
It’s sometimes called a “rolling retest,” but that’s not the right term. Ignition Interlock clients shouldn’t be rolling at all, because it could potentially put them in danger.
When prompted for an Ignition Interlock random retest:
- Pull off the road safely into an area without traffic.
- Put the car in park, but don’t turn it off.
- Provide an Ignition Interlock breath sample.
Your car will never turn off during an Ignition Interlock random retest, no matter what the result.
