California's Zero-Tolerance Policy for Underage DUI

California is known for holding the toughest underage driving under the influence (DUI) laws in the nation. Under California Vehicle Code § 23136, the state's zero-tolerance policy forbids drivers under the age of 21 from alcohol intoxication of any level. Anyone who is under the legal drinking age of 21 who has a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of 0.01% or higher can be charged with DUI. With a BAC of 0.05% or higher, the underage driver can be charged with both an underage DUI and a regular DUI. Penalties can be severe.

Penalties for Underage Drivers Charged with DUI

Underage drivers who are found guilty of operating a motor vehicle with any amount of alcohol in their blood are often required to participate in an alcohol education or alcohol rehabilitation program. Drivers under 21 years old with a BAC level of 0.01% or higher are subject to an administrative license hearing and license suspension for a minimum of one year.

Secure the legal assistance of one of our Ventura DUI lawyers to avoid the worst case scenario. Wilfert Law, PC can help defend your freedom and determine whether the sobriety tests were inaccurately performed or not.

Legal Defense for DUI Offenders Under 21 Years Old

For a person convicted of underage DUI to have his or her driving privileges restored, he or she must request a hearing with the DMV. Apart from a driver's license suspension, an underage DUI can drastically alter a young adult's life. People convicted must list the infraction on many college applications, which may be a deterrent to acceptance at their choice university. For students attending college, they may be required to face school administrative penalties in addition to criminal penalties.
