Underage DUI Laws & Penalties in Colorado

In Colorado, it is illegal for individuals under the age of 21 to consume or possess alcohol. The state has a zero-tolerance policy for underage drinking and driving, imposing strict penalties for those who violate these laws.

If an underage driver has a blood alcohol content (BAC) between .02 and .05 percent, they can be charged with underage drinking and driving (UDD), punishable by a fine of up to $100, driver's license suspension for 3 months, alcohol education programs, and community service.

If an underage driver has a BAC between more than .05 percent but less than .08 percent, they can be charged with driving while ability impaired (DWAI), which carries a jail term of up to 180 days and a maximum fine of $500.

If an underage driver has a BAC of at least .08 percent, they will be charged with a standard DUI as if they were an adult.

Understanding the Consequences of Underage DUI

Being charged with an underage DUI can have serious consequences that can impact your future. In Colorado, the legal limit for drivers under 21 is much lower than for adults, and the penalties for a conviction can be severe. It's important to understand the potential consequences of an underage DUI, including:

  • Driver's license suspension

  • Possible jail time
  • Impact on college admissions and scholarships
  • Increased insurance rates
