DUI Laws & Penalties in California

To be arrested for a driving under the influence (DUI) in California, a driver who is 21 years of age or older must have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of at least .08 percent. However, the BAC limit for commercial drivers is .04 percent, while it is .01 percent for underage motorists.

A first DUI conviction carries a maximum jail term of 6 months, a fine of up to $1,000, and driver’s license suspension for 6 months. Getting convicted can also result in having a criminal record, which can negatively affect your professional reputation and personal life.
