If you are using an ignition interlock device in your vehicle and you know someone else who also has a device, you may be wondering why these devices prompt for a test at different intervals. It may seem like your device is prompting you for a sample during a rolling retest (or running retest) more often than your friend’s device does. Why is that? Is there a reason behind the frequency of ignition interlock rolling retests?
The initial test happens when you start your vehicle after providing a breath sample into your ignition interlock device. Then the device will prompt you for additional tests at random times after your initial test.
It may seem like you are providing more tests than your friend, but the tests occur at random intervals per your state’s interlock regulations. Smart Start, or any other state-approved interlock company, does not have authority over the frequency of your tests because that portion of your interlock program is mandated by agencies outside of our control. We simply set your device to follow the regulations set forth for your specific situation.
The time you have to complete a rolling retest also differs because it too is state-regulated. In general, though, you will have between four to six minutes to pull over, safely put your vehicle in park, and complete a rolling retest.
