Pennsylvania Department of Transportation does not require individuals who have an Ignition Interlock License to install an Interlock system on vehicles that are used specifically for work purposes. If the vehicle is own by the business and only used for business needs the employee with an Ignition Interlock License may use the vehicle. However this can only be done after the owner of the business completes the Ignition Interlock Employment Exemption Affidavit.
This exemption does not apply for school buses, school vehicles, or transport vehicles for more than 15 people. The employee can not own any part of the business or have any ownership of the vehicle being exempted. The vehicle cannot be used for any personal purposes of the employee, and cannot even be made available to the employee for possible personal use. Nor can this exemption be used by someone who is doing certified inspections or test driving vehicles.
The Employment Exemption Affidavit must be completed in its entirety and be in the driver’s possession at all times when operating the employer owned vehicle for employment purposes.
