In West Virginia, it is illegal for a person to drive a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI). Whether or not a driver gets charged with a DUI is based primarily on their blood alcohol content (BAC). .08 is the legal BAC limit, so a driver who tests above that will automatically get charged with a DUI. If their BAC is below .08, but there is evidence that they cannot operate the vehicle safely, they will still get a DUI. Another way to get a DUI in West Virginia is to refuse the BAC test when pulled over. If a drivers BAC is .15 or above, then they will be charged with an aggravated DUI, and the penalties will be increased. The state also has a zero tolerance policy and a BAC limit of .02 for drivers under the age of 21.

A drivers first DUI conviction in West Virginia carries a jail term of up to 6 months and a fine of $100 to $500. Their license will also be suspended for 15 days. With a first offense aggravated DUI, the jail term increases to a minimum of 2 days to a possible 6 months. The fine ranges from $100 to $1,000, and the drivers license will be suspended for 45 days. If there is a minor under the age of 16 in the car, the jail term can last up to 1 year, and the minimum fine is increased to $200.
