The State of Oregon uses a slightly different acronym to refer to driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence. DUII stands for driving under the influence of intoxicants. Intoxicants include both alcohol and drugs, and are measured in various ways. Breath tests are the most common, but urine and blood tests may be used to obtain more conclusive results. If you fail to take a breath test when asked by law enforcement, your license can be suspended.

Being convicted of a DUII has serious consequences. A first time offense is classified as a misdemeanor, but penalties and fines will increase with repeat offenses. In some cases, our client will be eligible for DUII Diversion, a 1 year program that allows the DUII charge to potentially be dismissed upon completion of several requirements.


One of the most troubling aspects of a DUII is the license suspension. Not being able to transport yourself to work, for family trips, errands, or out to dinner with friends is frustrating. First time offenders are able to apply for hardship which allows them to retain driving privileges. Repeat offenders are not eligible for hardship, and after a third offense, a person’s license is revoked permanently.
