Will My License Be Suspended if I Am Adjudicated Guilty for a Boating Under the Influence (BUI) Charge?
No, your driver’s license will not be suspended if you are convicted of a BUI. The penalties for a first-offense BUI include a fine ranging from $500-$1000 and a maximum jail sentence of 6 months, 50 hours of community service, ten days of impoundment or immobilization of the vessel. Probation is required, but cannot exceed 1 year.
