Affordability Accommodations

The Board and our partner ignition interlock service providers believe the ignition interlock devices certified and used in Oklahoma protect the motoring public and provide aid to drivers who have lost his/her driving privileges in the state.  Therefore, the Board has created the affordability accommodation program in efforts to reduce the financial strain for qualified applicants.    

(1)  Participants applying for affordability status for the purpose of the ignition interlock program shall be deemed to qualify for such status by showing valid proof that the person applying for accommodations is actively receiving benefits from one of the following state or federal public assistance programs listed below:

i.      Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)

ii.      Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP)

(2)  Participants meeting affordability requirements shall receive the following credit that shall be distributed into the participants account by the manufacturer not to exceed a frequency of $25.00 per thirty (30) days.

(A) $150.00 maximum credit for a first license revocation pursuant to 47 O.S. § 6-205.1(A)(1); or

(B) $300.00 maximum credit for a second license revocation pursuant to 47 O.S. § 6-205.1(A)(2); or

(C) $450.00 maximum credit for a third or subsequent license revocation pursuant to 47 O.S. § 6-205.1(A)(3).

(3) Manufacturers are not allowed to count coupons, rebates, refunds, discounts, or other financial inducements otherwise available to any customer as the credit required for this program.

(4) If a participant does not remain compliant with respect to the IDAP program or device lease fees, they forego his/her affordability eligibility.  The manufacturer may inquire with the Board whether the person still meets the affordability accommodations and qualifies for the credit.

APPLYING

(5) The participant must provide the required documentation to the Board. Upon    approval, the Board will notify the applicant and manufacturer after completing BOT IDAP enrollment.  

(6) Participants denied affordability accommodations may appeal the denial.
