New Jersey Underage DWI Statute: N.J.S.A. 39:4-50.14

Underage DWI law is covered under N.J.S.A. 39:4-50.14. The elements that the prosecution must show are as follows:

1) The driver was under 21

2) The driver operated a motor vehicle on New Jersey roads

3) The driver had any amount of alcohol in his or her system at the time of the stop

Note: Our firm utilizes a former State trooper who is certified in field sobriety testing and as a certified operator of the Alcotest 7110, the breath testing device used in New Jersey DWI cases. He reviews the evidence, police reports, and videos and will draft a report to challenge the State’s evidence in your case.

Underage DWI Penalties in New Jersey 

  • Drivers license suspended between 30 and 90 days as determined by the judge
  • Community service period of 15 to 30 days as determined by the judge
  • Participation in the intoxicated driver resource center

Note: If you are found guilty of an underage DWI, it will not count as a prior DWI if you receive one subsequently as an adult. So, for example, if you receive an adult DWI and you previously had an underage DWI, you will only be facing a first offense.
