1st Offense DUI Las Vegas

Penalties for driving under the influence vary from state to state. Here in Nevada, if found to have a concentration of alcohol in your blood or on your breath of 0.08 or higher, possible penalties you will face include:


  • A minimum of 2 days to a maximum of 6 months in jail

  • At least 96 hours of community service

  • A fine between $400 to $1200, plus additional fees and assessments

  • A completion of an approved 8-hour DUI school, at your own cost, or a substance abuse program

  • Required attendance at a drunk driving Victim’s Impact Panel

  • Installation of Ignition Interlock Device (IID) for 3 to 6 months


If it is found that the concentration of alcohol in your blood or breath was .18% or higher, penalties could be more severe. The court may order you to install an IID in your vehicle for 12 to 36 months and require you to attend a program of treatment for the abuse of alcohol or drugs.


Additionally, the DMV may revoke or suspend your license for at least 90 days and impose a $35 civil penalty. After 45 days, it is possible for you to apply for a restricted license that allows you to drive to and from work.


Being charged with a DUI in Las Vegas is a serious situation and should not be taken lightly. Having an experienced attorney is critical.
