Drugs and Driving

A Missouri DUID (Driving Under the Influence of Drugs) is an offense as serious as a Missouri DWI and carries the same Criminal and Administrative penalties:

 

First DUID conviction

  • 8 points are assessed on your Missouri Driving Record
  • May result in jail time of up to 6 months
  • Fines of up to $500
  • License suspended for 30 days with a 60 day restricted driving period to follow if you are an adult driver, and your license will be suspended for 90 days if you are under 21 years of age  

 

Second or Subsequent conviction

  • 12 points are assessed on your Missouri Driving Record
  • May result in jail time of 1 to 4 years
  • Fines of $1,000 to $5,000 with license revoked for 1 year and license denial of 5 to 10 years
  • Community Service
  • SATOP completion
  • Possible intensive program completion
  • Possible Ignition Interlock Device requirement

 

A DUID is not issued for driving under the influence of illegal drugs only.  Some prescription and over-the-counter drugs have similarly dangerous affects on the brain/central nervous system and will impair your judgment and driving ability.  Please speak to your Doctor and/or Pharmacist and read all labels carefully before attempted to driver after taking any medication.  If you cannot determine what affect a medication will have on you, do not attempt to drive until the affects have been determined.
