DUI Charges in Florida

You will be arrested for DUI in Florida if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) measures .08% or more or if you exhibit impairment from alcohol or drugs while driving or while merely being in physical control of your car. If you are under 21, you can be arrested with a BAC measuring .02% or more. If your BAC measures .15% or higher or you are found drunk driving with a minor in your car, you will face harsher penalties.

A first-offense DUI carries the following penalties:

  • Jail time of up to 6 months
  • Up to a year of probation
  • Community service
  • Fines of $500 up to $1,000
  • Loss of your license for 180 days up to a year
  • Up to 6 months with a mandatory ignition interlock device
  • Vehicle impoundment

Second offenses within 5 years will likely have harsher penalties. A third offense occurring within 10 years of your prior conviction will be charged as a felony with more jail time and a longer license revocation period. Anyone convicted of DUI may also have to complete a substance abuse course and may be subject to alcohol or drug monitoring.
