DUI Defense: Miami Underage DUI Defense Attorney

What is the legal limit for underage drivers in Florida?

In the state of Florida, it is illegal for anyone to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. For adult drivers who are over the age of 21, the legal blood-alcohol threshold is .08%. For drivers who are under the age of 21, this limit is significantly reduced to .02%. Although a minor driver may not necessarily be impaired by the effects of alcohol with a blood alcohol concentration of .02%, it is illegal for them to consume any amount of alcohol in the first place. Furthermore, higher blood alcohol levels could result in enhanced legal penalties.

The Penalties for Underage Drinking & Driving

As mentioned earlier, underage drivers could be arrested and charged with DUI if they make the decision to get behind the wheel with a blood alcohol concentration of .02% or higher; however, they could also face enhanced penalties if their BAC was measured at .05%, or even .08%.
  • First DUI with BAC of .02%: Driver's license suspension for up to six months
  • First DUI with BAC of .08%: Longer period of license suspension & potential jail time
  • Second DUI with BAC of .02%: 12-month license suspension & potential jail time
