Penalties for DUI in Rhode Island

A conviction for DUI can bring a variety of serious consequences. The severity of these penalties will vary depending on a number of factors, including your prior arrest record, level of intoxication at the time of your arrest, and whether or not a collision was caused that led to another person’s death.

The penalties for a first DUI offense in Rhode Island include:

  • Up to 1 year in jail
  • Up to $500 in fines
  • Up to 18 months of driver's license suspension

Rhode Island Select Penalties for a 1st, 2nd or 3rd offense:

  • License Suspension or Revocation minimum – 2-18 months for a 1st offense, 1-2 years for a 2nd offense, and 2 years for a third offense
  • Vehicle Confiscation for a 3rd aggravated offense
  • Alcohol Education and Treatment
  • Ignition Interlock Device (IID)

Second and third offenses will carry more serious penalties, including up to 5 years in jail, fines up to $5,000, and a minimum 2-year license suspension. In addition, you may be required to have an ignition interlock device (IID) installed in your vehicle. If you refused to take a breathalyzer, then you could be looking at a 6-month suspension of your license, up to 60 hours of community service, and up to $500 in fines. In addition to the legal penalties, you may also face increased insurance premiums or even the possibility of denied coverage. This could virtually end your ability to drive and may even jeopardize your career if your job depends on having a valid license.
