DUI and Fines

The amount of fine in a DUI case depends upon such things as whether the person has any prior convictions for DUI, whether the person's blood-alcohol level or breath-alcohol level was 0.20 or higher when driving, or whether the person had a minor in his vehicle while driving. Florida statute section 316.193 lists the possible fines for DUI. Some of those fines include:

  • For a first DUI conviction, the minimum fine is $250.00, and the maximum fine is $500.00.  However, if the individual has a blood-alcohol level or breath-alcohol level of 0.20 or higher or if a minor is in the vehicle, the minimum fine becomes $500.00, and the maximum fine becomes $1,000.00.
  • For a second DUI conviction, the minimum fine is $500.00, and the maximum fine is $1,000.00.  However, if the individual has a blood-alcohol level or breath-alcohol level of 0.20 or higher or if a minor is in the vehicle, the minimum fine becomes $1,000.00, and the maximum fine becomes $2,000.00.

  • For a third DUI conviction, the maximum fine is $5,000.00 if the third conviction is within 10 years of a prior DUI conviction.  If the individual has a blood-alcohol level or breath-alcohol level of 0.20 or higher or if a minor is in the vehicle, the minimum fine is $2,000.00.

  • For a third DUI conviction that is not within 10 years of a prior DUI conviction, the minimum fine is $1,000.00, and the maximum fine is $2,500.00.  If the individual has a blood-alcohol level or breath-alcohol level of 0.20 or higher or if a minor is in the vehicle, the minimum fine is $2,000.00.

 

  • For 4 or more DUI convictions, the minimum fine  is $1,000.00.  However, if the individual has a blood-alcohol level or breath-alcohol level of 0.20 or higher or if a minor is in the vehicle, the minimum fine is $2,000.00.
