Understanding Nevada's Zero Tolerance DUI Laws for Minors

Understanding the laws surrounding underage DUI in Nevada is the first step toward protecting your future. In Nevada, it is unlawful for anyone under the age of 21 to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.02% or higher. This stringent limit is significantly lower than the 0.08% BAC limit for individuals 21 and older. Nevada has adopted these strict standards to deter underage drinking and driving, recognizing the heightened risks associated with inexperienced drivers under the influence.

Additionally, Nevada has a "zero tolerance" policy for underage drivers. This means that even the slightest trace of alcohol in an underage driver's system can lead to serious legal consequences. Our team of Las Vegas underage DUI lawyers is well-versed in the intricacies of these laws and is dedicated to providing the best possible defense for our clients.

Consequences of a Juvenile DUI Conviction in Las Vegas

Facing an underage DUI charge in Las Vegas can be overwhelming, but you must be aware of the potential penalties you may encounter. Nevada enforces strict consequences to discourage underage drinking and driving, and these penalties can impact various aspects of your life. Some of the key penalties for an underage DUI in Nevada include:

  • Driver's License Suspension: If you are convicted of an underage DUI in Nevada, your driver's license may be suspended for at least 90 days, up to two years. This suspension can severely limit your ability to travel to school or work, emphasizing the importance of a solid legal defense.
  • Fines: Underage DUI convictions can result in fines ranging from hundreds to thousands of dollars. These financial penalties can significantly burden young individuals just beginning to establish financial independence.
  • Community Service: The court may order you to complete a specified number of community service hours, allowing you to give back to your community while also serving as a deterrent against future offenses.
  • Probation: In some cases, probation may be imposed, requiring regular check-ins with a probation officer and adherence to strict conditions, such as attending alcohol education programs.
  • Criminal Record: An underage DUI conviction can leave a lasting mark on your criminal record. This record can impact your educational and employment opportunities for years to come.
  • Increased Insurance Rates: Expect your auto insurance rates to increase significantly after an underage DUI conviction. This financial burden can be ongoing and add to the already substantial costs associated with a DUI.
  • Ignition Interlock Device: In certain circumstances, the court may require the installation of an ignition interlock device (IID) in your vehicle. This device measures your BAC before allowing you to start your car, adding further inconvenience and cost to your life.
  • Jail Time: While less common for first-time offenders, jail time is possible for those convicted of an underage DUI, particularly if there are aggravating factors such as injury or property damage.

    "I switched and hired Mr. Goodman and could not have been more impressed with the outcome. You do get what you pay for."
    I met with Mr. Goodman who answered all my questions and knew his stuff.  I decided to hire a less expensive attorney but was not happy with the progress ended up being a waste of money with the other guy. I switched and hired Mr. Goodman and could not have been more impressed with the outcome. You do get what you pay for. I should have gone with my gut reaction at the beginning that would have saved me anxiety, time, and money. Don’t make the same mistake.
