DUI Penalties in Bakersfield

There is a lot at stake, so it is important that you work with an experienced Bakersfield DUI lawyer to protect your driving privileges and your driving record. Our team is ready to fight on your behalf to minimize the negative effects of your DUI charge on your future.

In California, even a first-time DUI can include harsh penalties:

  • Up to 6 months in jail
  • Immediate driver’s license suspension for at least 4 months
  • Up to $1,000 in fines, plus penalties and fees
  • Mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device
  • DUI and substance abuse programs

For subsequent offenses, you will face higher fines and longer jail times. Offenders under the age of 21 will also face severe penalties if even the slightest trace of alcohol is detected. Aside from the legal penalties, you may even be denied auto insurance coverage altogether.


Protect your license - you only have 10 days to request a DMV hearing.
