Did you know? Florida’s DUI Penalties for Minors
In Florida, it is illegal to drive with a .08% BAC (blood alcohol content) or higher if you are over 21 years old.
If you are under 21, the legal BAC drops to .02%.
Florida has a zero tolerance policy, which means that you can be charged with driving under the influence after having a single drink.
It is illegal for minors under 21 to drink at all, but what happens if you do?
First time DUI Offense for Minors:
If you are convicted of a DUI for a second time, your license suspension will be extended to one year.
Having a .05% BAC may result in harsher penalties, including a substance abuse evaluation and enrollment in a treatment course.
