Missouri DWI/DUI/BAC Administrative Alcohol Arrest Information “I Blew .08% or More” (.02% or More if a Minor)

Separate and apart from the criminal charges that may arise out of being arrested in Missouri for driving while intoxicated (DWI), driving under the influence (DUI) or driving with excessive blood alcohol content (BAC), a person arrested in Missouri for DWI, DUI or BAC also may be subject to administrative sanctions by the Missouri Department of Revenue Driver License Bureau. The administrative sanctions imposed may include driver license suspension or revocation.

If a driver arrested for DWI in Missouri takes and fails a chemical breath test (blows in a “Breathalyzer”), the driver’s license may be suspended or revoked. A driver fails the chemical breath test if the results reflect a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or higher by weight for adults, or .02% or higher for minors under 21 years old. At the option of law enforcement, a driver’s breath, blood, or urine may be tested to determine the driver’s blood alcohol content (BAC).

If you have been arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving under the influence (DUI) and have taken and failed a test of your blood alcohol content (BAC), whether it was a breath alcohol test (you “blew”), a urine test or a blood test, our experienced Missouri DWI lawyers can help.
