DUI Law: Probation

A DUI conviction in Florida will most likely result in probation time. For a first time DUI conviction, the total period of probation and imprisonment will not exceed one year—meaning that even if you only spend a week or a month in jail, you will serve the rest of the year under probation. Although serving a mandatory probation period is certainly better than spending time in jail, the restrictions are still consequential.

DUI Probation Conditions

  • May be required to wear an alcohol-monitoring device
  • May be required to enroll in alcohol counseling/alcohol education courses
  • May be required to submit to unannounced sobriety checks
  • May face limited driving privileges
  • May have to pay court fees/cost of supervision

DUI probation conditions are restricting to anyone being forced to adhere to them, but violating the conditions of probation could, in turn, lead to even more severe consequences.

Violating DUI Probation

  • May result in an extended probationary period
  • May result in incarceration for the remainder of the probation time
  • May result in mandatory community service
  • May result in a loss of driving privileges
