The Law

Connecticut DWI law states that it is illegal for any person with a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or greater to operate a motor vehicle.

The Penalties

  • Imprisonment: Minimum of 2 days in jail with possible sentence of up to 6 months.
  • Fines: The minimum fine amount is $500 and can increase up to $1,000 at the court's discretion.
  • Impact on License: Suspended for 45 days.
  • Community Service: Required to serve 100 hours.
  • Ignition Interlock Device: Applied to your motor vehicle for a minimum of 12 months.

Connecticut Alcohol Education Program

Connecticut's Pre-Trial Alcohol Education Program allows Connecticut allowing drivers who successfully complete the program to avoid all criminal sanctions. Not all DWI offenders can participate in the program. For example, drivers with prior DWI convictions are not eligible.

The program length depends on an evaluation conducted by a local agency. The driver will either have to participate in a level 1 program (15 hours over 10 weeks) of level 2 program (22. 5 hours over 15 weeks).

The Solution

Be sure you file an SR22 form and keep SR22 insurance coverage for a minimum of three years. Your insurance agent will be able to assist in this process, but make sure you have the proper coverage to avoid a harsher penalty.

Other than meeting the above, most judges will enforce a DWI education program on violators. If you have been required to complete a course for a DWI in Connecticut you can get started today.
