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, is punishable by up to 60 days in jail. This charge can carry 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.

Driving After Consumption & Your Future

Being convicted of driving after consumption will affect your future. This conviction will be on your criminal record, which will be visible to everyone from potential employers to college admissions officers. If you are already in college or a member of the military, you may face additional penalties from your school or the branch of service in which you serve.
