Underage Drinking and Driving


Mecklenburg County Underage Drinking/Driving After Consuming Alcohol Attorney (888) 543-2427

Underage drinking and driving, dwiNorth Carolina has essentially a zero tolerance rule on underage drinking and driving. If the accused is less than 21 years of age and drives with any amount of alcohol in their system, he/she faces being convicted of a Class 2 misdemeanor. In addition, their license may be revoked for one year.

Given that North Carolina’s laws regarding driving while impaired are extremely tough, it is imperative that you consult an attorney before going to court. Beside the implications of being convicted of DWI, there are multiple negative effects a DWI could have for your license to drive in North Carolina, including revocation of your license and/or an increase in your car insurance rates.


If you are accused of driving while intoxicated or underage drinking and driving in North Carolina, please contact Mecklenburg County Criminal DWI Defense Attorney Carilyn Ibsen at (888) 543-2427.
