Multiple DUI Penalties

  • Jail or prison sentence
  • Steep fines
  • Suspension or revocation of your drivers’ license
  • Probation
  • Community service
  • Increased auto insurance premium
  • Your vehicle may be impounded
  • DUI arrest, charges and conviction on your legal public record
  • You may also be labeled as a habitual offender for 3 years following your conviction

A first offense could incur up to $1,000 in fines and six months of imprisonment, not to mention a six month license suspension. California also escalates penalties for multiple DUI offenses if they are committed within a certain time frame.

If a second DUI conviction occurs within 10 years of a first offense, imprisonment could last up to a year, the fine rises to a maximum of $5,000, and the offender’s license will be suspended for one year. A third or subsequent offense within 10 years of the first conviction is a felony under California law.
