Driving After Consuming by a Person Under 21

As a zero tolerance state, North Carolina takes a hard stance on underage drinking. If you are under the age of 21 and caught driving after consuming drugs or with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .01 or higher, you will be charged with driving after consuming by a person under 21.


Driving after consuming by a person under 21 a class 2 misdemeanor, punishable up to 60 days in jail by the same penalties as the “adult” version of this charge, depending on the circumstances of your case. in addition, upon receiving notice of the conviction, the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles will revoke the driver’s license of the person convicted for one year.

It is important to note that if you are 18 or younger, you will not be eligible for a limited driving privilege during the one-year license revocation.
