In Ohio, the legal blood alcohol content (BAC) for people 21 years old is 0.08%, but you can be arrested for a DUI (also called OVI in Ohio) with a lower BAC if the officer who pulled you over feels that your mental and physical abilities are impaired. For everyone throughout the state, a DUI arrest may have both administrative and criminal consequences including:
- License Suspension
- Discretionary Driver’s Intervention Program
- Alcohol Treatment Program
- Vehicle Forfeiture
Although minimum and maximum penalties are the same throughout the state, not all Ohio courts deal with DUI cases with the same leniency or stringency.

DUIs IN WOOSTER, OHIO
In Wooster, Ohio and other municipalities in Wayne County, the chances of receiving occupational driving privileges following a DUI arrest were slim. However, recently the Court has started granting limited driving privileges. Typically, if it’s a first time offense with a low tier BAC, the Court has started granting driving privileges for administrative license suspensions without a full hearing. Now, if a Motion is filed, the Court will consider driving privileges.
Here is the Wooster Driving Privilege Application.
