Penalties for Your 1st DUI Offense

The law in Nevada takes DUI offenses seriously, so the penalties are among the harshest you can receive. If you are facing your first conviction for a DUI, you can expect the following penalties:

  • 2 days to 6 months in jail
  • 48 to 96 hours of community service
  • A fine ranging from $400 to $1,000
  • Attend Nevada DUI School
  • Attend a Victim Impact Panel
  • A 90-day suspension of your driver’s license

If your BAC is higher than .18%, you will face harsher consequences. You may have to have a break interlock device (IID) installed in your car for 3 to 36 months, you may be evaluated for drug or alcohol dependency, and you may be ordered to complete an alcohol or drug abuse treatment program.
