More drink-driving offences have a mandatory alcohol interlock licence condition
Any driver or motorcycle rider whose driver licence and/or learner permit is cancelled due to a drink-driving offence, committed on or after 1 October 2014, will be required to install an alcohol interlock in any vehicle they drive or ride as a condition of relicensing.
The length of time drivers will be required to have an alcohol interlock installed ranges from at least six months, for a first offence, up to four years or more for serious and repeat offences.
Prior to 1 October 2014, the laws for alcohol interlocks target offenders with a BAC of 0.15 or more, most repeat drink-drivers and young drivers with a BAC of 0.07 or more.
For offences committed on or after 1 October, alcohol interlocks will be mandatory for the following new groups of drink-drivers:
- *every first offender who has a probationary licence or learner permit (at any BAC level)
- other drivers who have a BAC of 0.07 to 0.15
- drivers with a BAC under 0.07 whose licences are cancelled, including professional drivers of buses, taxis and vehicles over 15 tonnes
- all repeat offenders with a BAC reading under 0.07
- first serious alcohol-related offences under the Sentencing Act 1991, such as culpable driving involving alcohol
* From 1 October 2014, any learner permit and/or probationary licence holders with a first BAC offence between zero and less than 0.05 will have a 3 month cancellation and an alcohol interlock condition of at least 6 months. Prior to 1 October 2014 this was a 10 demerit point offence.
