Pennsylvania DUI Laws & Penalties

If your blood alcohol content (BAC) is at least .08 percent—or .04 percent for commercial license holders (CDLs) or .02 percent for bus drivers and motorists under 21 years old—you can be charged with a DUI in Pennsylvania. Additionally, you could face DUI charges for driving or being in physical control of an automobile while under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or a combination of both substances.

The penalties for a DUI conviction are based on the following three categories:

  • General impairment DUIs – DUI based on a BAC of between .08 percent and less than .1 percent or impairment. A first-time offense is a misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum jail or probation sentence of six months and fines of up to $300.
  • High rate DUIs – DUIs based on a BAC of between .1 percent and less than .16 percent or impairment DUIs with injury or death. A first-time offense is still a misdemeanor, which carries a maximum jail sentence of six months (with a minimum term of 48 hours), fines of up to $5,000, and driver’s license suspension for no more than 12 months.
  • Highest rate DUIs – DUIs based on a BAC of at least .16 percent or controlled substances or impairment DUIs that involve chemical test refusal. A first-time offense is a misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum jail term of six months (with a minimum sentence of 72 hours), fines of up to $5,000, and driver’s license suspension for up to 12 months.

When a person is arrested for DUI while having a minor passenger in the vehicle, it is considered a first-degree misdemeanor. A first-time offense is punishable by a maximum jail term of five years, fines worth at least $1,000, and driver’s license for up to 18 months.
