Underage DUI

Franklin Underage DUI Lawyer

Tennessee has a specific law to prohibit underage drivers from operating a motor vehicle with essentially any amount of alcohol in their system.  Anyone under the age of 21 who is operating a motor vehicle with a BAC of .02% or higher can be charged with Underage DUI. This means impairment is not even required. An Underage DUI conviction results in an automatic one-year loss of driving privileges with NO eligibility for a restricted license. Even for a young person, the loss of a driver’s license can be crippling.  The inability to drive to school or work can leave a young person stranded. At Larsen Law PLLC, we’ve successfully handled several of these cases and found creative solutions to avoid the loss of driving privileges.
