Do I have to be driving my vehicle to be charged with drriving under the influence?

No. An individual who is in actual physical control of a motor vehicle can be charged with DUI, even if they are not actually driving the vehicle. For example, an intoxicated person behind the wheel of a vehicle with the keys in the ignition could still be charged with DUI.
