Ajen Smart Start alcohol interlock systems.

As an accredited service provider under the Western Australia Alcohol Interlock Scheme, we install and service Ajen Smart Start interlock systems. The technology in Ajen Smart Start alcohol interlock systems provides accurate readings of the Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) in a driver’s breath. This allows the Department of Transport to accurately assess compliance with the Alcohol Interlock Scheme or to ensure employees are safe to operate commercial or heavy machinery.

What is an alcohol interlock device?

An alcohol interlock device is an electronic breath analyser fitted to a motor vehicle. It prevents the driver from operating the vehicle if alcohol is detected in their system. Once the vehicle is in motion, the alcohol interlock device randomly prompts the driver to complete an additional breath test.

The device allows time for the driver to stop their vehicle to re-do the BAC test. Every BAC reading is recorded by the alcohol interlock device, along with any evidence of tampering with the system. Alcohol interlock systems can be fitted to commercial fleet vehicles or personal cars, as directed under the Western Australia Alcohol Interlock Scheme

WA Alcohol Interlock Scheme.

To preserve the safety of all road users from drink drivers, the State Government established the Western Australia Alcohol Interlock Scheme. The Scheme is mandatory for anyone convicted of a drink driving offence. Any driver with an interlock condition imposed on their licence is only permitted to drive a vehicle fitted with an approved interlock device.
