What are the total “costs” of a DUI?

In addition to increased auto insurance rates and SR-22 filling fees, penalties for DUI are likely to be costly in numerous other ways, including:

  • Fines
  • Legal fees
  • Prison fees
  • DWI assessment fees
  • Court fees
  • DUI school fees
  • Restricted license fees

And financial costs of DUI are only part of the picture. DUI offenders are also likely to face:

  • Jail time
  • Lost employment
  • Community service
  • Installation of an ignition interlock
  • Driver’s license restrictions and/or suspensions

Before getting behind the wheel after consuming alcohol or drugs, it pays to ask yourself if it’s worth it - especially since lives are at risk!

Did You Know?


All states try to share information about DUIs.

Some states suspend the licenses of drivers who get violations in other states and fail to fulfill their legal obligations.

All states report DUI information to the National Driver Register. Your state’s licensing authority will likely check this database before issuing or renewing a driver’s license.
