Victoria’s Alcohol Interlock Program
The Dräger Interlock® 7000 is a reliable and precise
alcohol measuring instrument with integrated vehicle
immobiliser. It prevents a person under the influence
of alcohol from starting the vehicle. The Dräger
Interlock® 7000 consists of two components: –
handset and control box. If required, the device –
can be additionally equipped with a camera.
Before you can start the engine, the device measures
the alcohol content in your breath. When no alcohol
is detected, you can drive, however, if alcohol is
detected, you will not be able to start your vehicle.
Retests are required while driving and are carried out
at random intervals. The Dräger Interlock® 7000 does
not interfere with a running engine. Therefore, your
driving will not be disrupted by the device.
The Dräger Interlock® 7000 can differentiate
between mouth alcohol and breath alcohol. Mouth
alcohol caused by food and beverages that contain
small amounts of alcohol can affect the test result.
You cannot start the vehicle for a pre-defined period
of time if a certain breath alcohol concentration is
The Dräger Interlock® 7000 records all alcohol –
readings, vehicle starts, engine shut-offs and –
violations. This data is downloaded at each –
monthly service and sent to VicRoads for review.

products, including mouthwash or smoke for 15
minutes before using the Dräger Interlock® 7000.
–– Alcohol can continue to rise for up to 2 hours after
your last drink and it can take further 10 hours for
your body to return to a zero reading after large
volumes have been consumed.
–– Make sure ambient air does not contain alcohol or
solvent vapours, e.g. air fresheners.
–– Ensure that the breath test is provided from the
driver’s seat in order for the test to be accepted.
–– Avoid placing the Dräger Interlock® 7000 on the
vehicle floor. If the device is not secured, it may
interfere with the pedals and the safe operation of
the vehicle.

while driving. If you are asked for a breath test,
you have 5 minutes to pull over and present the
breath test. Do not turn the vehicle off.

and/or neglect the Dräger Interlock® 7000 or –

6. During the test you will hear the device clicking
three times. When you hear the third click, briefly
suck in some air. The coloured LEDs and the –
display will indicate that the breath test is complete.
The Dräger Interlock® 7000 will display the following
messages if the blow pattern is correct:
–– “Test passed” – A green LED confirms the result
and the vehicle can be started.
–– “Test failed” – A red LED confirms the result. In
this case, the vehicle cannot be started.
After a failed initial breath test due to detection of
alcohol, the vehicle will not start and a “Temporary
Lockout” will be activated.
A countdown will show on the display the amount
of time remaining before another breath test can be
presented. Once the temporary lockout period has
expired, repeat steps 3 – 6 under “How do I start
the vehicle” to present another breath test.
In case mouth alcohol is detected, the message –
“Interferent detected – Repeat test” will appear.
Press the “OK” button to take a new test.
The Dräger Interlock® 7000 will let you know if you
are not presenting a correct sample. If an error –
occurs during the breath test, the device will alert
you with audible and visual signals. If you hear a
beep during the measurement, stop blowing and
look at the display. The following guidelines will help
you to find and eliminate the problem:
–– “Blow longer!” – You need to blow longer.
–– “Blow stronger!” – You need to blow harder.
–– “Suck after blow” – You did not suck back
Press the “OK” button to take a new test.
The Dräger Interlock® 7000 will ask for random
breath test, “Rolling Retests”, while you are driving.

light will flash. The display will read “Retest required –
Please blow.”
–– Pull over, out of traffic when it is safe to do so.
–– Don’t panic – You have 5 minutes to provide the
breath sample.
–– There is no need to turn the vehicle off.
–– Take the breath test as you would to start your
–– Once you see “Test passed” on the display,
secure the device and continue your trip.
If you fail or do not provide a retest within the 5 minute –
frame, the vehicle’s horn will sound and lights will
flash. You must pull over out of traffic and turn your
vehicle off to deactivate the vehicle’s horn and lights.
If a retest is failed, the Dräger Interlock® 7000 will
start a 30 minute lockout period.
Excessive violations will cause the Dräger Interlock® 7000
to require a service earlier than scheduled. –
A “VIOLATION RESET” can be caused by:
–– Failed rolling retests.
–– Rolling retests that are not presented within –
5 minutes.
–– Battery disconnection more than 20 minutes.
–– Tampering with the Dräger Interlock® 7000.
–– Trying to circumvent the Dräger Interlock® 7000.
If you see “Device Lockout in XX days”, you need
to contact your Service Agent to have the Dräger
Interlock® 7000 serviced. Failure to do this within the
displayed time will result in a permanent lockout.
For example, you may be due for a service in 18 days,
but a violation caused by continually ignoring the
Rolling Retest request has brought your service date
forward to 7 days. You will see “Device Lockout in –
XX day(s)” displayed on the handset. In this situation,
you must call your Service Agent and make an –
appointment within that time or the Dräger –
Interlock® 7000 will be in a permanent lockout.
The Dräger Interlock® 7000 must be serviced every
month. The following services are included in your
monthly fees and will occur at each service:
–– Check seals for tampering.
–– Check for misuse, abuse or neglect of the unit.
–– Download of data for VicRoads.
–– Test equipment is functioning correctly.
This will take about 15 minutes to complete –
(20 minutes if a calibration is required).
Your scheduled services will be set to the day of
installation for each month, called the anniversary
date. For example, if the Dräger Interlock® 7000 is
installed on the 23rd of January, the next service
date will be set to the 23rd of every month.
At each service, your next anniversary date will be
programmed into the Dräger Interlock® 7000. The
display will show a reminder message 7 days before
your service is required, warning you that the Dräger
Interlock® 7000 is due.
You are given an additional 7 days grace after your
service date. If your alcohol interlock is not serviced
within this time, it will enter into a permanent lockout
state. If you have your Dräger Interlock® 7000 serviced
during the 7 days grace, your next service date will
be set back to the anniversary date.
A permanent lockout will require you to either have
your vehicle towed to the Service Centre or request –
a Service Unlock Code. Both will be at your expense.
All calls are logged, and resulting actions recorded.
Please note that emergency calls resulting from –
actions caused by you acting outside the parameters
of the program will be at additional costs and –
payment prior to a service will be requested.
Only services relating to faulty equipment or –
installation, where evidence of tampering, misuse,
abuse, neglect or vehicle accident is not apparent
will be free of charge. However, it is your –
responsibility to bring the vehicle with the –
Dräger Interlock® 7000 to the Service Centre.
