Multiple Offense DUI

Repeat DUI Offenders Face Enhanced Penalties in New Jersey—Get the Help You Need from an Experienced New Jersey DUI Lawyer

In New Jersey, you can be charged as a repeat DUI offender if you get arrested two or more times in a 10-year period. Repeat offenders face enhanced penalties—including up to 180 days in jail for a third or subsequent offense. To protect yourself to the fullest extent possible, you need a highly experienced New Jersey DWI lawyer on your side.

What Are the Penalties for Repeat DUI Offenders in New Jersey?

If you have a prior arrest (or multiple prior arrests) on your record, hiring an experienced lawyer to represent you will be even more important this time around. In multiple offense DUI cases, the potential penalties include:

  • Fines - $500 to $1,000 for second offenses; $1,000 for third and subsequent offenses.
  • Driver’s License Suspension – Up to two years for second offenses; up to eight years for third and subsequent offenses.
  • Ignition Interlock Device/Registration Revocation – Up to four years (after your suspension ends) for second and subsequent offenses; potential vehicle registration revocation for third and subsequent offenses.  
  • Jail time – Up to 90 days for second offenses; up to 180 days for third and subsequent offenses.
  • Additional Fines, Costs and Surcharges – All multiple offense DUI convictions can lead to additional fines, costs and surcharges totaling thousands of dollars.

Drunk driving convictions can lead to various other consequences as well—though you likely know this already. Having multiple convictions on your record will add to the challenges of finding (or keeping) a job, and it can lead to additional challenges in many other aspects of your life.
