Driving Under the Influence (DUI) in Louisiana

Louisiana state law prohibits any driver from operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated from drugs and/or alcohol. Limits are set so officers can determine if the driver is breaking the law. The state limit for blood alcohol concentration are:

  • All drivers = .08%
  • Commercial drivers = .04%
  • Under age 21 drivers = .02%

Implied Consent Law

If you refuse to take the chemical test which determines your BAC or blood alcohol concentration your driver’s license will be suspended. This suspension is 180 days for the first refusal and 545 days for the second refusal.
