Penalties For DUI In Virginia

Virginia laws are tough on drunk drivers, and a conviction can lead to steep penalties that can affect your finances and personal freedoms. If convicted of this type of crime, you could face the following:

  • First offense: A first DUI offense will result in a revocation of your driver’s license for a period of one year, plus fines starting at $250.
  • Second or subsequent offense: Repeat DUI offenders face fines starting at $500, multiyear revocation of driver’s license, time behind bars and more.

Additional factors can increase the severity of the charges against you and the penalties you are facing, such as having a minor in the car, having an excessively elevated BAC level and causing an accident. Other consequences of a DUI include the installation of an ignition interlock device, vehicle impoundment and alcohol treatment programs.
