If you are under 21 and and your blood alcohol (BAC) is at least .02 and less than .08

  • License (or permit) suspended or withheld for three months for a first offense; six months for a second offense within five years.
  • License suspended for six months if chemical test is refused during a first offense; a one-year suspension if it’s the second offense within five years.

However, it is important for you to know that you are entitled toAdministrative Hearing to seek reinstatement of your driving privileges while your case is pending.
