If you are under 21 years of age, and ifÂ convictedÂ of a first DUI offense, in addition to any DMV action, you are facing the following criminal court sentence:
California enforces a no tolerance policy for the underage DUI.Â Â The legal limit for drivers under 21 is .01% for DMV purposes. If you are under 21 years of age, you will face all of the penalties above, in addition to a mandatory loss of license of one year.Â If you are younger than 18, a juvenile judge may add additional requirements to your sentence, such as imposition of curfew, mandatory employment, and maintenance of a certain grade point average.
