Under 21 years old and DUIs

Nevada has a zero tolerance DUI law when it comes to people who are under the drinking age of 21 and their driver’s license.

If you are younger than 21 years of age, your driver’s license may be suspended for 90 days if your blood alcohol content is ONLY .02 or above. If you are 21 or older it is .08, much higher than the .02. Thus it is much easier to get your license suspended if you are under 21 years old.

To make matters worse, if you are under 21 and convicted of a DUI you will be ordered to undergo a drug elevation before sentencing. This could cause the judge to add on more conditions to your sentence.

Don’t drink and drive.
