Drink Driving Penalties In Australia

The legal blood alcohol concentration limit in Australia is 0.05% for fully qualified drivers and while Australia's drink driving laws vary between states, the penalties imposed increases with the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of the driver.

In most Australian states a BAC of 0.05% to 0.08% is considered a "low range" drink driving offence, 0.08% to 0.15% is a "mid range" offence, and over 0.15% is considered a "high range" drink driving offence involving severe drink driving penalties.

At the very least, drink driving offenders will generally face a substantial fine, demerit points and temporary suspension of their driver's licence. More serious offences also carry the risk of long-term licence disqualificaton, mandatory fitting of an interlock device, or even a prison term.

Most Australian states have lower blood alcohol limits (usually a BAC of 0.0) for professional drivers, novice drivers and/or drivers under the age of 26, previously disqualified drivers and operators of heavy vehicles and commercial passenger vehicles.
