No Alcohol Conditional License
Utah Code Ann. § 53-3-232, Utah law mandates that the Driver License Division issue a no alcohol conditional license to any person convicted of a qualifying offense once that person has completed any applicable license suspensions or revocations, or upon conviction if no suspensions or revocations result from the conviction.
In Utah, the driver licenses display information regarding no alcohol conditional status. Qualifying offenses that trigger the no alcohol conditional license include:
- Alcohol-related reckless driving;
- Driving with any measurable controlled substance in the body; or
- Automobile homicide.
The “No Alcohol Conditional License” means that the holder of this type of license is prohibited from operating a motor vehicle or motorboat with any alcohol in the person’s body regardless of whether the person’s BAC exceeds the legal limit or not. The restrictions remain in place for two years following a first qualifying conviction or six years following a second or subsequent conviction.
A violation of the no alcohol conditional license is a class B misdemeanor. Driver licenses in Utah display information regarding their conditional status. The back of the license in the bottom right-hand corner contains the words “Conditional License Until [date].”
