How much does a DUI cost? Introducing Intoxalock's Ultimate Guide To Costs Of A DUI (with Money Saving Tips!)

Though the exact figure varies on a case-by-case basis, the average cost of a DUI is around $10,000. The main reason for this steep price is to deter people from drinking and driving and potentially hurting others in the first place.

Here at Intoxalock, we understand how confusing and expensive the DUI process can be so we decided to create an Ultimate Guide to the costs of a DUI with helpful money saving tips you can utilize along the way!

To create this guide, we consulted with a wide array of stakeholders involved in the DUI process to better understand the average cost of a drunk driving offense, and to find useful price saving tips for every step along the way!

Included in this guide, we cover the various factors that add up to the total cost of a DUI, including:

  • Bail for a DUI
  • DUI lawyer costs
  • DUI insurance costs (otherwise known as SR-22 Insurance)
  • DUI classes costs
  • Cost of an ignition interlock device

Calculating the average DUI Cost

Even though the cost of a DUI will vary from state to state, a majority of drunk driving offenses will go through similar steps. Typically, the price of a drunk driving offense will first be met with costs associated around bail, bond, and towing fees.

From there, DUI lawyer costs and court-ordered fines will then come into play. After this, many DUI offenders still needing to use their vehicles will have to regain their driving privileges by adhering to the requirements set forth by their monitoring authority (their judge, the DMV, Secretary of State, etc.).

The requirements for regaining these driving privileges often includes the installation of an ignition interlock device, attending DUI classes, and applying for a restricted license.

With the prices of each of the steps mentioned above varying on a case-by-case basis, our dedicated team of DUI-process researchers looked at the average price range for each one using state-specific information to help guide us in informing our numbers.

After this, we crafted detailed content tailored to the average DUI experience, in order to better inform those who recently had a DUI offense of what to expect throughout the process.

Simply put, we put in a lot of time and effort to create a guide that is easy to read and filled with valuable information for recent DUI offenders in need of help.

How we created our Money Saving Tips

In order to create the special feature of this guide, the “Money Saving Tips” sections, our team looked at the various ways one could navigate through the DUI process and how to save the best amount of money with each step along the way.

By utilizing our extensive sources and knowledge of the DUI process, we boiled down the most affordable approach to all stages of a DUI into one resource so you don’t have to spend hours doing research on the topic.
