Oklahoma DUI Laws

What do Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Lawton and Norman all have in common? Like other places in Oklahoma, none of them tolerate drinking alcohol or doing drugs and driving a motor vehicle. A driver who is discovered to be impaired will be charged with a driving under the influence (DUI) offense. Learning about Oklahoma DUI laws may help you avoid committing this offense, and if you've already been charged, assist you in planning your next steps.

Below are the basics of Oklahoma DUI law, including blood alcohol concentration limits and common penalties for the offense.

Oklahoma DUI Laws: Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) Limits and Implied Consent

"Per Se" BAC Limit 0.08 Percent
Zero Tolerance (Underage) BAC Limit 0.00 Percent
Enhanced Penalty (Aggravated) BAC Limit 0.15 Percent
Implied Consent to Submit to BAC Test? Yes

Oklahoma DUI Laws: Some Penalties

Mandatory Alcohol Education, Assessment and Treatment Assessment & Treatment
Vehicle Confiscation Possible? Yes (certain circumstances)
Ignition Interlock Device Possible? Yes

Note: State laws are always changing through legislative, judicial, or other means. While FindLaw works hard to ensure the accuracy of its legal resources, it's a good idea to thoroughly research the law or check with an attorney to make sure you have the most recent information.

Ignition Interlock Devices and Restricted Licenses in Oklahoma

If you've been convicted of a DUI or have refused to submit to a blood alcohol concentration test after being stopped for suspicion of impaired driving, you may be required to have an ignition interlock device installed on your vehicle. These devices are essentially "breathalyzer" machines that control the ability to start the car. If your breath sample reveals that it would be unsafe for you to be behind the wheel, the vehicle's ignition is disabled.

Oklahoma DUI Resources:

Your first (and hopefully last) DUI offense in Oklahoma can cost thousands of dollars in fines, court costs, legal fees, ignition interlock device rental, and other fees. But other potential costs of a DUI -- such as life-altering injuries or death -- can't be quantified in dollars and cents. While it's not uncommon for people to have a couple of drinks before getting behind the wheel, all it takes is one drink too many to get arrested, or worse.
