Multiple DUI Penalties
If there are no other aggravated circumstances, you can have your driver’s license revoked for a second DUI, which will be classified as a misdemeanor. You may also have your vehicle registration suspended, you could spend at least 5 days in the county jail and you may be required to do 240 hours of community service. If you receive a third DUI conviction, you could spend 3-7 years in prison and have your license revoked for 10 years. If you have six or more DUI convictions, there is a prison sentence anywhere from 6-30 years and you will permanently have your license revoked.
