Refused a BAC Chemical Test? Violated Probation? You Could Face Enhanced Penalties If Convicted of DWI.

In Minnesota, if you are arrested for driving while impaired and were found to have a blood alcohol concentration ( BAC) of 0.20% or higher, you will face enhanced penalties.


Additionally, you will face enhanced penalties if:

  • You refuse to take a chemical test to determine your blood alcohol content level
  • You have violated probation for a prior DWI conviction
  • You had a passenger under the age of 16 in the vehicle with you
  • You had any prior alcohol related license revocations or DWI convictions within the past 10 years
  • You are currently revoked for a different alcohol related driving offense
