Drink Driving Limits in the UK
|Alcohol Level||England, Wales, NI||Scotland|
|Micrograms per 100ml of breath||35||22|
|Milligrammes per 100ml of blood||80||50|
|Milligrammes per 100ml of urine||107||67|
If you are stopped by the police and given a breathalyser, you will be arrested if you fail the test, and you may be arrested if you either refuse the test or fail to provide a breath sample.
According to drink driving law, you will be breathalysed twice more at the police station, with the lower of the readings recorded as your official sample.
If this sample registers as being up to 40% higher than the legal limit, you may decide to exercise your right to offer a blood or urine sample as an alternative.
If found guilty of drink driving, and if you are without the proper legal support, you could face serious penalties, including a fine, driving ban or custodial sentence.

I was charged with drink driving and my case looked hopeless. There was witness evidence and forensic evidence. From my first meeting with Abdul he reassured me that we could win the case. Abdul was fantastic and the end result is that I am a happy man as I have kept my driving licence and my job. Scott McDonald.
I was initially somewhat sceptical about keeping my licence, I was stopped for Drink Driving and the costs were high, but the result was excellent, and the money was certainly well spent. I would not hesitate to use DFR again. Michael A.
I had never been in court previously, and the prospect was terrifying. I was stopped for Drink Driving, and was looking at a significant disqualification. The result in the circumstances was unbelievable, the solicitor was excellent in presenting my case and explaining the extenuating circumstances. I was overjoyed with the final result.NM
