West Virginia Drunk Driving Penalties
Any penalties you may be facing as a result of a DWI charge in West Virginia depend on your blood alcohol content (BAC) at the time of your arrest. If you are a first time offender who has a BAC of between 0.08% – 0.15% at the time of your arrest, you will be charged with a “normal” DWI.

The length of your license suspension may be reduced with the completion of DUI classes and by enrolling in West Virginia’s ignition interlock program.
