Texas DUI Law

State Blood Alcohol Concentration Levels:

  • Under age 21 = BAC .02 or higher
  • CDL drivers = BAC .04 or higher
  • All drivers = BAC .08 or higher

The fine for your first drunk driving offense in Texas is $2,000 and a mandatory 72 hours jail time. Your drivers license will be suspended for a minimum of 90 days but no more than 1 year.

Implied Consent Law

Every driver who receives a driver’s license consents to a chemical test of their blood, breath, or urine to determine their BAC. The refusal of this test will revoke your license and a temporary license will be issued.

Texas IID (Ignition Interlock Device)

An ignition interlock device is required when a driver must maintain an interlock license. This type of license authorizes the driver to operate a motor vehicle equipped with an IID. The cost to install and maintain the IID is the sole responsibility of the driver.

Here are some approved installation centers:

LifeSafer Interlock

Intoxalock

Do not remove the installed device prior to your suspension period as it will require you to start the suspension over again.
