In most states, a first-time DUI or DWI is classified as a misdemeanor and carries a jail sentence of six months to a year. However, in a few states, the maximum jail term for a first DUI is much lower. In New Jersey, for example, a first DWI carries a maximum sentence of 30 days in jail. Furthermore, while uncommon, some states, such as Pennsylvania, do not require first-time DUI offenders to serve any jail time. Many jurisdictions mandate that first-time offenders spend at least a few days in jail. To get out of this situation, you may need the assistance of a drink driving lawyer in Toowoomba.


If you are discovered driving with an alcohol concentration of 0.10 percent or above, you will be charged with exceeding the middle alcohol limit. The penalties for committing this offense are more severe than those for a lower-level DUI offense, and drivers risk a minimum disqualification of three months. If you meet all other conditions, you may be qualified to apply for a driving work license.
