Second Offense DUI in Wyoming

A second DUI (sometimes referred to as a DWUI) in Wyoming (within 10 years of a first prior DUI) is subject to administrative and criminal penalties.

Administrative Penalties

A second DUI/DWUI within 10 years will result in a license suspension of 1 year.  Second time offenders are not eligible to receive a probationary license. In addition, the driver’s license suspension stays in effect even if a court later dismisses the DUI charge.

Criminal Penalties

If a driver is convicted of a second DUI/DWUI in Wyoming in ten years, the driver faces a fine between $250 and $750, and a minimum sentence of 7 days in jail. However, the judge has the discretion to sentence the driver to up to 6 months in prison. In addition, the offender must attend a state approved substance abuse program and undergo a substance abuse analysis. To have a drivers license reinstated following the one-year suspension, a driver must install an ignition interlock device in the vehicle. The driver must pay to have the device installed and the maintenance of the device.

Felony vs. Misdemeanor

A second offense DUI/DWUI in Wyoming is a misdemeanor offense unless a child under the age of 16 is in the car, in which case it is classified as a felony (under a law passed in 2014).
