What is a BAIID device?

Breath alcohol ignition interlock devices (BAIID) are sometimes referred to as "Blow and Go" devices. They are installed in automobiles to measure a driver's breath alcohol content (BAC) before allowing the engine to start. The automobile cannot be started if driver's BAC is above preset limit as defined by Secretary of Illinois. While operating the automobile, the BAIID will prompt driver to take random breath (rolling) test and records information for Illinois monitoring authorities.

For anyone having to deal with having a BAIID device I strongly recommend Alcotest. I have dealt with Lissa throughout the entire process and she has always gone above and beyond to take care of any and all issues to include taking the time after business hours when i was locked out and had to get my vehicle to the service provider. I also had to deal with changing from Illinois to Missouri and she made it an easy transition and took care of all the necessary leg work when i wasn't able to. In the future I hope that I never have to deal with this again but I highly recommend Alcotest for all your BAIID needs and when calling in for the first time just ask for Lissa. She has always gone above and beyond to ensure things are taken care of and done in a timely manner. Thank you very much Lissa! -- Mark C

Lissa and Alcotest have been extremely helpful in navigating my time with the device. Always friendly on the phone, and available to talk. They especially helped me when I needed to bring in my car for repairs. Thanks a bunch! -- Dan S

This has been a very stressful time for me but Lissa has taken the uncertainty and fear out of my experience with installation of ignition interlock system. Extremely kind...understanding and very professional! Thank you. -- Lynn C

Lissa was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. She was able to answer my questions quickly, when other representatives could not. Thank you. -- Christina C

The entire process of having the ignition interlock device installed, having it calibrated and understanding the fees involved is extensive. Ask questions and know what to expect. Lissa in the Iowa office was very helpful when it came to understanding the why behind the entire process. -- Craig

Called Alco and spoke with Lissa. My mechanic recommended this company and Lissa. She was great. She made the process easy, and answered all of my questions in detail. She was professional and friendly. What more could you ask? -- John

Hi Lissa, thank you again for your help with getting my BAIID installed. They did a great job and were quick! Drove for 35 minutes and had to blow once and passed the first time on the highway. I feel more relaxed and comfortable knowing it was installed properly and you're on my side with any help in the future. I look forward to our "partnership" through this experience and I'm deeply grateful and appreciative of your help. -- Nicole

I had called other companies before i got my RDP to get pricing and advice and all they wanted was my credit card and send me a machine that would have messed everything up by having it to early it was a awful experience until I called AlcoTest Inc and the very nice lady Lissa was very great in informing me from start to finish and didn't want my card or blow off my questions she went above and beyond want customer service should be. I recommend this company over all the rest and they have the best pricing with the best customer service that actually listened to my concerns because you want to get this right the first time and I talked to 4 different ones and the first one just wanted to send the machine and I didn't even have my permit yet so I'm sure there's people out there driving do to that company doing the fastest way ...not listen at all just want the money. So, if you need a BAIID system installed to get a permit I highly recommend AlcoTest Inc. -- Done Rite Done Rite

Lissa and Camron, thank you for making this process less intimidating and helping to make it all happen. Cameron, you initially spent A LONG time on the phone explaining everything regarding the unit and pricing. I spoke to other companies and I knew after taking to Cameron this was the one for me. God bless Lissa who was there to answer my early morning phone calls and coordinating having my unit installed into my vehicle. You never made me feel uncomfortable asking anything about the unit or the process. This is not a situation one likes to be in but you have made it so much easier and less frightening. -- Sherry

Helpful. Lissa is the coolest person in the world. She will answer all your questions and she takes her work personally. Even offered to give me coupons via email, and talked to me personally about my device. Even told me what I should do in case things happen. Couldn't be happier with her help. called me after hours and I need that. -- Rick

I had the BAIID in my car for 2 years and just got my license back. Was a long haul but AlcoTest was very friendly and helpful throughout. I would recommend AlcoTest to everyone if you need a BAIID. I have already got two of my friends to switch to your company! -- Chad G

Carlos, Even the license reinstatement lawyers on Avow had no idea how to address this issue. I was in full panic mode due to the lack of information, and just one call to you settled the concern. Thank you for being patient and helpful. It is so appreciated that you take the time to be helpful to your customers. I will never forget the kindness you have shown to me. -- Linda E
