Penalties for a Second DUI Conviction in Tennessee

The mandatory minimum penalties for a second-offense DUI in Tennessee is:

  • Mandatory minimum of 45 days in jail up to a maximum of 11 months and 29 days
  • Your license will be revoked for 2 years with immediate eligibility for a restricted license upon application. The restricted license requires the interlock device for any conviction of DUI when the person blows over a .08 BAC. The “old version” of restricted license (i.e. back and forth to work, school, church, probation meetings, treatment programs, etc.) is still available in very few instances for convictions of Implied Consent.
  • You will be ordered by the court to go to DUI School
  • There is a $600 minimum fine and a $3,500 maximum fine

Because of the seriousness of a second DUI offense, it is crucial that you seek competent legal representation. At Ridings Law Group, P.C., we understand the fear, anxiety, and confusion that may accompany a DUI/DWI arrest—especially as the laws continue to change, as they have significantly over the past couple of years. Our firm is prepared to help you. We can determine if there are valid reasons to challenge the stop, or if any part of the arrest might lead to a reduction, an acquittal, or in some cases, a complete dismissal of your charges.
