Manufacturers of devices that monitor a driver’s blood alcohol level when getting behind the wheel are required to have a $100,000 Ignition Interlock Device Program Bond filed with the Oregon State Police. The bond is used to prevent drivers from losses when the manufacturer is no longer on the list of qualified ignition interlock device providers.
With Jet, you can purchase your bond for just a fraction of the limit. Our exclusive monthly payment plans break up the cost into payments that are affordable for everyone.
With Jet, our rates are based on personal credit and will vary. Other information may be required to receive a quote from Jet. We work directly with you, cutting out the middlemen that tack on commissions and broker fees.
The reason the Oregon State Police require this bond is to prevent drivers who are legally obligated to hold an ignition interlock device from bearing the burden of cost when changing devices after you are no longer qualified. Having a valid ignition interlock device is important not only to the driver to be in compliance with legal obligations, but is also crucial to the safety of the public.
Your ability to stay in business and conduct it honorably are what keeps you on the list of qualified manufacturers. If you are unable to do so, the devices you had released are no longer viable and must be replaced — the device owner should not have to pay for your failures. The bond provides a method of reimbursement for the device owners.
It’s easy to apply for the Ignition Interlock Bond with Jet. Once you click the button above, you’ll be able to start putting in the information needed for your quote. Since this bond has a relatively high limit of $100,000, a social security number will be needed to run a soft credit check and financial statements will need to be reviewed by a Jet team member.

Yes, your bond can be cancelled at any time by giving the Oregon State Police a request of cancellation. The bond will remain active until the Oregon State Police finalizes the cancellation, meaning that payment will be required. After the cancellation is complete, Jet will cease all monthly payments and, for bonds that were purchased by the year, issue a refund for the unused portion of the term.
When it is nearing the end of your Ignition Interlock Device Program Bond term, Jet will send you a notice through mail and email. You will receive a quote for your new term and all you need to do is select your new term and submit payment. This only takes a minute to fill out, regardless of whether you do it online or through mail.
Monthly payment plan subscribers don’t need to worry about renewal; the bond stays active with each payment that is processed.
The best way to avoid bond claims is to make sure that you are keeping your business healthy and compliant with the rules of the Oregon Revised Statutes, Section 813.660(3). Claims generally come in when you are removed from the list of qualified ignition interlock device manufacturers. This can be a result of insolvency, closing down your business, or failing to comply with the behaviors listed below:
Any failure on your part to comply with the code of conduct given can lead to a claim against the Ignition Interlock Device Bond.
If you receive notice of a claim against your bond, contact Jet immediately. Jet will provide paperwork (such as proof of loss forms) to the claimant and instructions on how to proceed in no more than 30 days. An investigation into the accusation will occur to determine its validity and must be completed within 45 days. Additional time may be requested if a verdict has not been reached.
If the claim proves to be valid, Jet will be obligated to pay out the claim to account for the fiscal damages of your actions. However, this does not absolve you from the damage — you will be required to pay Jet back in the amount that was paid out for the claim.
