Idaho DUI laws can be complex and filled with red tape. While most people are aware that the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit in Idaho is .08, they do not realize that a BAC reading over this level this is only one method of proving a DUI charge.

The laws related to a DUI charge and penalties can be found in Idaho Code §18-8004. and Idaho Code §18-8005 - Penalties.

DUI - First Offense

While many people think that a first time DUI is "not that big of a deal" this could not be further from the truth. Do not try to handle these cases on your own. A conviction can result in severe and lasting consequences.

DUI - Second Offense

In Idaho if you are charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI) for a second time within 10 years, you are facing enhanced penalties. Although still considered a misdemeanor offense, a second DUI conviction comes with mandatory jail time, a spike in fines, and many other possible penalties.

DUI - Third Or Subsequent Offense - Felony DUI

In Idaho a third or subsequent DUI conviction is a felony DUI and can result in a prison sentence.

Excessive DUI

An excessive DUI is charged when an individual's BAC is above a .20. This is a more serious offense than a "standard DUI" and can result in enhanced penalties. A conviction for your first excessive DUI in Idaho is a misdemeanor but a second conviction within may result in a felony charge.

Aggravated DUI

An Aggravated DUI is a felony DUI typically involving a crash where someone was severely hurt or killed.

Juvenile "Under 21" DUI

When under the age of 21 years old, it is illegal to operate a vehicle with a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) over .02 in Idaho. The penalties for minors who break this law can be as serious and long-lasting as those for adults convicted of Driving Under the Influence.
