Tennessee like any other state in the US holds some stringent laws regarding drunk driving. Any individual suspected for drunk driving can be stopped and his/her blood alcohol concentration can be tested through a chemical test. Any driver refusing it from an enforcement officer and proved guilty can be convicted under the DUI/DWI offense.
As the 1st offense, the driver’s license will be suspended for 1 year.
In the case of the 2nd and 3rd offense, the revocation of the license will last for 2 years.
The BAC in adults should not exceed 0.08% and in those under 21 years, it should not exceed 0.02%.
