Smart Start Interlock

We are your local Smart Start Service Center in Northwest Iowa. We understand that with an OWI or DUI you have been through the legal system and in order to meet your requirements you will need to have a breathalyzer installed to get your license or permit back. We are here to help you and make the process as easy as possible. Plus, If you need an interlock for longer then 6 months you will get a free install.

To start your service there is a simple process that you must follow.

  • First you will need to call 1-866-747-8278 to schedule your install with Smart Start Inc. (We are unable to do this step) They will need some information such as your license number, vehicle information, and social security number. They will contact us to determine the best install time.
  • When you come for your install time at one of our locations it will take about 1 to 1.5 hours to complete the install. At this time you will fill out paper work, watch an informational video, and we will train you on the process. At this time you will also pay for your first month of service.
  • After you leave from the install you will have the required paper work to get your license from the state that same day.
  • Every month on the date you had your install you will be required to stop in at a Smart Start® location to have your monthly service. We will need you to bring in the car that it was installed in. We plug in the unit installed in the car to the computer and download the stats. At this time you will pay the monthly fee by credit card or cash. This process takes about 15-20 minutes.
  • Once you have reached your required time to have the interlock device by the state. You will need to once again contact Smart Start at 866-747-8278 to verify the removal date and time. They will contact us and when you come in on the last day we will remove the unit. This process takes roughly 30-45 minutes.
  • You will then be complete.
