Florida Drunk Driving Laws

State law prohibits drivers from operating vehicles if their blood alcohol content (BAC) is above the legal limit. An individual will be charged with drunk driving in Florida if they are pulled over and the officer determines through breath and blood testing or field sobriety testing that they are legally intoxicated.

BAC Limits

BAC limits in Florida vary for different types of drivers, as follows:

  • Drivers age 21 or older: BAC limit of .08%
  • Drivers under the age of 21 (Under 21 DUI): BAC limit of .02%
