Texas Approved Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Vendors

Texas LogoThe list below provides the Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Devices (BAIID) and the vendors who sell these car breathalyzer devices that have been approved by the state of Texas.

The list of approved vendors is provided for drivers seeking the installation of an ignition interlock device (IID) due to a court order and to obtain a Texas Restricted Interlock License. This order often follows a second DWI conviction or a first DWI conviction with a Commercial Driver License (CDL) as part of probation. For the private use of an IID, such as installing a breathalyzer device for parents to monitor teenage drivers or employers to monitor employees, other vendors may be used.

For BAIID installation centers in Texas contact an approved vendor. Below the list of approved interlock companies is a list of the specific models that are approved for use in Texas.

This list is subject to change and nothing on this site should be considered legal advice. For more information on BAIID installation contact the Texas Department of Public Safety. For legal advice contact a licensed attorney.
