Penalties for Driving Under the Influence in Florida

The laws that pertain to DUI are clearly stated in the Florida Statute. Individuals that have their driver’s licenses are all subject to implied consent, which means that anytime an officer suspects you of driving under the influence, you must adhere to a sobriety check, whether it is a chemical test, a breath test, or field sobriety test. Failure to do so will result in automatic suspension of your license and a possible DUI charge.

Additionally, the law states that individuals that operate a vehicle while under the influence with a high blood alcohol level, those that drive while intoxicated and cause a major injury accident or death, or those that have minors in the car, could be subjected to additional penalties and fines.

A first-time DUI conviction in Florida can result in:

  • Vehicle immobilization or impoundment for 10 days, unless your family has no other mode of transportation
  • Up to six months in prison, depending on the severity and nature of your alleged offense
  • Up to one year of probation
  • DUI school
  • Required 50 hours of community service
  • Revoked driver's license for 180 days to 1 year
  • Fines up to $1,000; possibly more, depending on severity and nature of your offense

After your first arrest, each additional DUI holds the potential for lengthier prison or jail sentencing, higher fines, and longer periods without your driver's license.
