The fines for a DUI arrest will vary based a variety of circumstances unique to your arrest, including whether this was your first DUI and whether you’ve had prior DUI convictions or Wet Reckless convictions. Likewise, if you are charged with a felony DUI, rather than a misdemeanor DUI , the fines will likely be greater.

It’s important to remember that you’ll also be responsible for several other costs, including alcohol-education classes, fees to have an ignition interlock device installed in your vehicle, attorney’s fees, and increases with your car insurance related to your charge.
Felony DUI convictions in Los Angeles also result in fines ranging from $390-$5,000, along with the additional costs outlines above.
