Underage DUI Laws Los Angeles

Criminal Defense Attorney

Currently all states have a zero tolerance policy for underage drinking and driving. California has some of the toughest underage drinking laws in the country. If a person under the age of 21 has a blood alcohol level of .01 or greater, they can be charged with underage drinking while driving. If the blood alcohol level is .05 or greater, then the person can be charged with both underage drinking and driving as well as regular driving under the influence.

If you are arrested for DUI under 21 years of age, the Department of Motor Vehicles will suspend your license for one year. It is important to fight both in the court system as well as at the DMV hearing.
