Know the Penalties for a First Time DUI in California

Misdemeanor first DUI convictions in the state of California bring penalties such as:

  • Fine of $390 to $1,000
  • Penalty assessments of more than $1,000 or over $2,600
  • 48 hours in jail to six months in jail
  • License restriction / suspension
  • Vehicle impoundment
  • Installation of an interlock ignition device in your vehicle which forces you to test your blood alcohol content (BAC) before starting your car
  • Attendance at an alcohol treatment program

These are the minimum to maximum penalties for an individual convicted of first-time DUI, in an accident without any physical injuries or deaths. Additionally, you will most likely be put on probation. Your probationary period as a first-time DUI offender will be about three to five years in most situations. During this time, you will be required to adhere to probationary terms or face a renewed trial and steeper penalties.

The terms of your probation may include:

  • Agreeing to a BAC test upon first request from an officer
  • Driving without any alcohol in your system
  • Committing no misdemeanors
