Trial and entry into force

In 2019 the Lithuanian Parliament adopted an amendment to the law on Road Traffic Safety allowing the Ministry of Transport to launch an alcohol interlock programme as a pathway to a shorter driving ban for highlevel drink-driving offenders.

To date, 400 drivers have participated in the programme.


Since 1 January 2020, convicted drinkdrivers who have lost their driving license are, after a set period of time, able to apply for their license to be reinstated with the provision that they only drive a vehicle fitted with an alcohol interlock.

Rehabilitation/medical aspects

The Ministry of Health intends to create a new rehabilitation programme, which will include offenders already included in the alcohol interlock programme allowing a medical follow up for drink-drivers.
