A judge may order a person convicted of DUI for the first or second time to use an ignition interlock device for three to six months after driving privileges are restored if the offender’s BAC was less than .18. Use of an ignition interlock device, however, is mandatory for a period of 12 to 36 months after restoration of driving privileges in the following three situations: (1) where the offender has a BAC of .18 or greater; (2) where the offense is the third DUI violation in seven years; and (3) where the offender has a BAC of .08 or greater and causes death or serious bodily injury to another person.

In addition to other penalties that may apply under Nevada’s DUI laws, a commercial driver who is convicted of DUI while operating any vehicle will be disqualified from driving a commercial vehicle for one year. If, however, the offender was driving a commercial vehicle and transporting hazardous materials at the time, the disqualification period is three years. If a commercial driver commits a second DUI while driving any vehicle, the offender will be disqualified from driving a commercial vehicle for life, which may or may not be reduced to a period of 10 years.

If a person under 21 commits a DUI with a BAC of .02 but less than .08, that person will receive a mandatory driver’s license suspension of 90 days. Underage DUI offenders are also required to undergo an consultation to determine whether the offender is an abuser of alcohol. The offender can be charged up to $100 for the consultation. Nevada law also permits drivers under 21 to be prosecuted and punished for DUI under the laws applicable to drivers 21 and older.

In Nevada, it is a crime to sell or furnish alcohol to a person under 21. Those who violate this law are subject to a jail term of up to six months and payment of a fine of up to $1,000. In lieu of all or part of this punishment, a judge may order the offender to perform community service work for up to 200 hours.
