First DUI Penalties
DUI convictions are associated with both civil and criminal penalties. State prosecutors will handle the criminal penalties, while the DMV will administer the civil penalties which includes license suspension. You have ten days after your arrest to request an administration hearing with the DMV in order to obtain the privilege to drive again.
The minimum penalties for a first DUI are the following:
- Jail sentence between four days and up to six months
- A fine between $390 and up to $1,000
- License suspension for a minimum of four months
In order to get your license reinstated, you must install an ignition interlock device and purchase SR-22 insurance coverage for your restricted license.
