In 2007 in California, 203,866 people were arrested for driving under the influence (DUI). What does this mean? It is against the law for a person under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or drug, or both, to drive a vehicle. More specifically, the driver cannot have a blood-alcohol level of .08 or above. Drivers with a commercial license operating a commercial vehicle will be charged with a DUI if they drive with a BAC of .04 or higher. It is also illegal for anyone who is addicted to any drugs to operate a vehicle unless they are in a registered treatment program.

How long does a DUI stay on your record in California?

A violation of California DUI Law or DUI conviction remains on someone’s driving history for ten years!

First time DUI offenders in California face a minimum jail term of 96 hours, but they may be placed in jail for up to 6 months. The driver will also have to pay a fine of $1,000 to $1,600, and their license will be suspended for 6 months. Other mandatory penalties include completing a driving under the influence education course and obtaining California SR22 insurance required for a restricted license. There is also the possibility that an ignition interlock device will be ordered installed in the driver’s vehicle.

If a California driver is charged with a second DUI, they must still apply for the insurance and attend the education program, but the other penalties are increased. The jail term is a minimum of 90 days, with a maximum of 1 year. The fine now ranges from $1,000 to $1,900. The driver’s license will now be suspended or revoked for 2 years.
