Can You Get A DUI While Driving A Boat?

You can get a DUI in more than just a car or truck. Boating while intoxicated is a sizeable portion of the DUI charges in Florida, and is taken just as seriously as driving under the influence on a highway.

What Will Happen If I Refuse A Breathalyzer Test?

You will get your license suspended for one year if you refuse to take a breathalyzer test. If you have a second breathalyzer refusal, your license gets suspended for 18 months.

Can I Get Permission To Drive After A DUI Arrest?

It is possible. You will need to apply for a temporary driving permit within 10 days of your DUI arrest if you need a driver's license to get to work, which means that you need to secure legal representation as soon as possible.

If I Get Convicted Of A DUI, Will I Lose My License?

Yes, for a first conviction, your license will get suspended for at least 180 days. Other penalties include:

  • Probation – Up to one year
  • Fines – at least $500
  • Jail time – Up to six months
  • Mandatory DUI education
