What Constitutes DUI for Underage Drivers?
The legal drinking age in Nevada is 21 years old, with a few exceptions. Regardless of these exceptions, anyone under 21 who gets behind the wheel with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .02 or higher can receive a DUI citation.
What are the Penalties for Underage DUI?
A first drunk driving conviction for a person under the age of 21 will first result in the convicted driver having to undergo an evaluation to determine if they have substance abuse problems, and may require them to complete driver’s education classes, drug/alcohol counseling, or community service.
Other penalties will then include:
- Driver’s license suspension for at least 90 days
- Imprisonment for a period of two days to six months
- Fines between $400 and $1,000
- Possible installation of an Ignition interlock device or impoundment of vehicle
