DUI Violations

In Virginia, the penalties for a DUI charge are a minimum fee of $250, an administrative license suspension for a period of seven days and the creation of your criminal record. Of course, some of these consequences seem very intimidating ‐ and that's their purpose. This is a warning issued by the state to encourage their drivers to reform their habits.

As with any penalty, the consequences become worse with every successive transgression. And in the case of your second DUI, you face a 60-day license suspension, a minimum $500 fine, revocation of your license for an indefinite amount of time and between 10 days and a year in jail (depending on how soon this took place after your first DUI charge).
