Delaware Juvenile DUI Laws

In the state of Delaware the age to legally purchase and drink alcoholic beverages is 21 just like the rest of the country. The legal limit for Blood Alcohol Content while operating an automobile is .08%, again just like the rest of the United States. However, if you are under the age of 21 and are caught drinking and driving you should know that Delaware has very strict laws for those under 21. If you are under the legal drinking age and are caught driving drunk or driving buzzed there are very severe legal and administrative penalties you will face such as fines, fees and license suspension. In addition, if you are enrolled in one of the many colleges or universities in Delaware you may also face administrative penalties imposed by the school or institution.
