Texas Underage DUI Charges & Potential Consequences

Drivers under the age of 21 with any detectable amount of alcohol in their systems can be arrested and charged for DUI. That means that you can be arrested even if you are not intoxicated or impaired but merely because you have more than 0.0 percent blood alcohol concentration (BAC).

An underage DUI is charged as a Class C misdemeanor punishable by:

  • A fine of up to $500
  • 60-day license suspension
  • Community service
  • Alcohol awareness education

If you are aged 17 to 20 and found to have a BAC of .08 percent or more, you may face stiffer penalties, such as a fine of up to $2,000, a license suspension of 90 days up to a year, and jail time of 3 to 180 days. A second conviction within 10 years can lead to even harsher penalties with fines reaching up to $4,000, jail time of a year, and a license suspension of a year.

Additional penalties include the potential loss of your insurance or increased premiums as well as a permanent criminal record going forward.
