DUI Penalties in Minnesota | Luther Automotive Group


DUIs (driving under the influence) is as serious of a driving penalty as any. Not only do you put yourself and those in your vehicle at risk, but others on the road are threatened by your actions as well. The penalties for driving under the influence of alcohol in Minnesota are dire. Let us fill you in on what could happen to you if caught driving under the influence of alcohol.  


For your first DUI offense, Minnesota law can penalize you up to 90 days in jail, fine you up to $1,000, suspend your license for up to 90 days, and an interlock ignition device to be installed in your vehicle. An interlock ignition device (IID) is a device similar to a breathalyzer. The vehicle cannot be started unless a legal blood alcohol content is blown into the device.


Your second offense can result in up to a year in jail, a fine upwards of $3,000, and up to 180 days suspension on your license. Your second offense will also require an interlock ignition device. Third offenses bring with them greater consequences. Like second offenses, penalties result in up to a year in jail with up to $3,000 in fines, but this time, a 180 day license suspension is the minimum. Again, an IID will be installed in your vehicle.


Finally, 4th time offenders can receive up to 7 years in jail, fines up to $14,000, and their licenses revoked for up to 4 years, all on top of an IID.


Please don’t take the risk of driving after drinking. Be responsible.
