If you are found to be driving with a BAC of over 0.08% and you have a prior conviction of DUI the penalties you face are much harsher. The punishment for a second offense within 10 years will result in a 1-year license suspension, up to 1 year jail sentence, fines, probation and mandatory alcohol treatment. You will also be forced to obtain SR22 insurance for up to three years after your driving privileges are restored. Usually this type of insurance costs two to three times more than your current policy and can amount to a substantial sum.

It is also important to note that if you are a drunk driver and refused to take the chemical tests, you will face harsher punishments than if you took the test and failed. Individuals who refuse to take the chemical tests can face up to a 2-year license revocation for a second offense. You will also be ineligible for a restricted license (a license that permits you to drive to and from work or other court approved activity).
