Underage Drinking and Drugged Driving—Zero Tolerance Law

If a driver under age 21, is stopped and issued a citation for a traffic violation, and found to have any trace of alcohol in their system while operating a motor vehicle, his or her driving privileges will be suspended. If the driver refuses to submit to testing, their driving privileges will be suspended.*

First offense—3 month suspension of driving privileges for a BAC of more than .00.

Second offense—1-year suspension of driving privileges for a BAC of more than .00.

In Illinois, any person under age 21 may be charged with a DUI: if he or she has a BAC of .08 or more; more than .05 with additional evidence of impairment; any illegal drugs in his or her system; or other indications of impaired driving.

First DUI conviction: Minimum 2-yr revocation of driving privileges

Second DUI conviction: Minimum 5-year revocation of driving privileges

Illinois law prohibits a person under age 21 from purchasing, accepting, possessing or consuming alcoholic beverages. Infractions result in the suspension or revocation of driving privileges.

*It is at the discretion of the investigating officer and based on test results or a test refusal whether a traffic stop results in a Zero Tolerance or DUI charge or both.
