The state of Florida is prosecuting individuals who are caught driving under the influence. Any driver who is found to have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher may be charged with a DUI offense and subject to penalties under the law. 

If you have been charged with DUI, you  have 10 days to request an administrative hearing with the DHSMV to fight an automatic driver's license suspension. If you fail to request this hearing, you will automatically lose your license for at least six months and possibly more, depending on the nature of your charges.

Charges for first time DUI can result in fines of $500.00 up to $1,000.00, this is considered a first offense DUI.  Other levels of penalties can be assesed for more serious DUI offenses.
