Consequences of an Underage DUI

Florida has no tolerance for underage drinkers. If a driver under the age of 21 is found driving with a blood alcohol level (BAL) of .02% or above, they can be arrested and convicted of DUI.

Penalties for an underage DUI (first offense), include:

  • Between $500 and $2,000 in fines
  • Up to 1 year license revocation
  • Community service
  • DUI school
  • Probation
  • 6 months driver's license suspension
  • Vehicle impoundment
  • May be ordered to install an Ignition Interlock Device (IID)

Underage DUIs are unique because often the alleged offender is usually attending high school or college. Youth are often required to disclose a DUI conviction on college and financial aid applications and if they lie, they can be charged with perjury.

A DUI conviction can close many doors when it comes to schools, financial aid, playing on college sports teams, and applying for jobs. Not only that but DUI offenders are moved into the "high risk" category with insurance companies and their monthly premiums can be raised by as much as $100 or $200 a month, thus we cannot stress enough the importance of fighting an underage DUI case.
