How do DUI’s affect drivers under 21 years of age in Kansas?

It is unlawful for any person under 21 to operate or attempt to operate a vehicle with a breath or blood alcohol content of .02 or greater. If a driver under 21 has a BAC between .02­ and .079 there are no criminal penalties, but driving privileges can be suspended for 30 days on the first occurrence, and one year on any subsequent occurrence. However, If the driver has a BAC of .08 or above his or her driving privileges can be suspended for 1 year. In order to avoid an automatic suspension of driving privileges, you must request an administrative hearing within 10 days of the day you were stopped. If you request a hearing, the basis for the suspension may be challenged.
