Being prosecuted for drink driving is never a pleasant thing for any driver. If you get caught and are facing charges for this offence, you are at risk of receiving a drink driving punishment. It is important to understand that this punishment is different for each particular case. There are aggravating features in such cases that can play a big role in the case and the magistrates’ decision.
If you get convicted for a drink driving offence, you could get penalties ranging from fines to imprisonment to a ban from driving.
- You may end up paying a maximum fine of £2,500 for a less serious case or an unlimited one for serious ones.
- Depending on the level of offence and impact on others, you may go to prison from 3 months to 14 years.
