Driving Under the Influence (“DUI”) of alcohol or drugs is a serious criminal offense in New Hampshire. Penalties for a DUI conviction include license suspension, monetary fines, and a mandatory alcohol program. Aggravated DUI and DUI-2nd, or subsequent convictions, increase the degree of punishment, and include jail time. And, if you are convicted of Driving After Suspension following a DUI conviction, the penalties become even more severe.
New Hampshire RSA 263:64 provides that it is against the law for any person to drive, or attempt to drive a motor vehicle in New Hampshire during the period of suspension or revocation of his/her license. If that revocation resulted from a New Hampshire DWI conviction, the penalties for Driving After Suspension include a jail term of not less than seven (7) days, up to a $1,000 fine, and an additional one (1) year loss of license. Needless to say, driving without a license can significantly add to the underlying New Hampshire DWI penalties.
