I am currently certified as an Ignition Interlock Provider Center. When and how do I recertify?
Ignition Interlock Provider Centers are certified for a four year period. Expiration dates can be found on the wall certification you received from DDS. Click here to download the Ignition Interlock Provider Center Recertification Application. Please include all required documents on the application checklist when you submit it to the Regulatory Compliance Division. Fingerprinting is required for recertification.
- I was fingerprinted when I initially became certified. Why do I need to be re-fingerprinted again for recertification?
Fingerprints that are used for non-criminal justice purposes are only retained by the Georgia and Federal Bureaus of Investigation for a matter of days and then purged, hence the need to be re-fingerprinted. In addition, the decision to recertify an individual or entity must be based on current criminal history results.
- Are Ignition Interlock Providers allowed to operate strictly out of a mobile unit?
Ignition Interlock Provider Centers that wish to operate a mobile unit must have a permanent fixed physical location that is open to the public. Certified centers are allowed to operate mobile units provided, however, that DDS is notified of what counties the mobile unit(s) will service.
