It’s illegal to operate a motor vehicle in North Dakota at the following BAC percentages:

  • .08%+ at 21 years old or older
  • .04%+ for commercial vehicle drivers
  • .02%+ at under 21 years old

While these percentages represent the legal limits for determining intoxication, you don’t have to hit these levels to be arrested and convicted for DUI in North Dakota. All it takes is for a law enforcement officer to judge you to be impaired by drugs or alcohol to the point that it diminishes your ability to safely operate your motor vehicle.

What are the consequences of being convicted of a DUI?

The first DUI offense is considered a class B misdemeanor. It’s punishable with such penalties as 2 days of imprisonment, up to $750 in fines, up to 180 days suspension of driving privileges, and addiction evaluation. Some of the upper limits of these potential penalties are reserved for when the BAD is elevated to 0.16 or 0.18%.

Penalties are stiffer for a second offense within a 7-year period, though it’s also a class B misdemeanor. The third offense within a 7-year period becomes a class A misdemeanor, and the consequences become harsher still. Fourth and subsequent offenses within a 15-year period are class C felonies.
