In Florida if you are under 21 and you are stopped for DUI special rules apply regarding your driving privileges.
See the Florida Statute below:
Suspension of Persons Under the Age of 21 for Driving With an Alcohol Level .02 or Above
Section 322.2616, Florida Statutes, authorizes law enforcement officers having probable cause to believe that a motor
vehicle is being driven by or is in the actual physical control of a person who is under the age of 21 while under the influence
of alcoholic beverages or who has any alcohol level may lawfully detain this person and may request them to submit to a test
to determine the alcohol level. This violation is neither a traffic infraction nor a criminal offense, nor does being detained
under this statute constitute an arrest.
First Suspension for Persons
Under the Age of 21 With An Alcohol Level .02 or above: 6 months.
or Subsequent Suspensions 1 year.
First Suspension for Refusal to Submit
to Breath Test: 1 year.
Second or Subsequent Suspensions for Refusal:
The suspension is effective immediately. If the breath
or blood alcohol level is .05 or higher the suspension shall remain in effect until completion of a substance abuse evaluation
and course. The officer will issue the driver a temporary permit effective 12 hours after issuance which is valid for 10 days,
provided the driver is otherwise eligible.
