Updated: Nov 2, 2021

The Law

Mississippi DUI law states that it is unlawful for any person to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, drugs or an intoxicant, if he or she has a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or greater.

The Penalties

Penalties in DUI cases are handed down by a judge. The judge’s decision is limited by certain parameters, which include a driver’s previous number of DUIs (including out of state convictions).

Also, first and second offense DUIs are considered misdemeanors and when determining whether an offense is a first or second offense only the last five years are looked at. A third or subsequent DUI within a lifetime is considered a felony. Penalties for a DUI charge include:

  • 1st Offense: Up to 48 hours in jail and a fine of $250 to $1,000
  • 2nd Offense: 5 days to 6 months in jail and a $600 to $1,500 fine
  • 3rd Offense: 1 to 5 years in jail and a $2,000 to $5,000 fine

Mississippi DUI Education

Mississippi Alcohol Safety Education Program (MASEP) is Mississippi’s statewide driver improvement program. Under the authority of the Mississippi Implied Consent Law, the program is court mandated for first-time offenders convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol or another substance which has impaired their ability to operate a motor vehicle.

MASEP is a statutorily mandated, evidence-based DUI intervention program. Upon conviction or non-adjudication, you should have received the court order for MASEP.

MASEP classes are offered online for those residing outside of Mississippi, for people with underlying health conditions that make attending a group setting potentially dangerous due to the COVID pandemic, or for people who cannot attend a meeting due to other extenuating circumstances, such as lack of transportation.

Non-Mississippi Residents

If you live, work, or go to school in another state, you should contact the MASEP office at 662-325-3423 and request approval to take an out of state class. If you live in Mississippi, you must complete MASEP in Mississippi.

There will be an out of State Processing Fee if you take a class in a different state. After completion of the class he/she must send a copy of his/her program completion certificate to MASEP. The Operations Coordinator will determine if the program attended is a comparable program to MASEP and will approve the out of state program in place of MASEP if it is. We strongly suggest that you also send a copy of your completion certificate to the court that handled your case.

In order to complete your required DUI class ask your judge if you may take an online program. Our online class is simple to use and lets you get started on your requirements right away. You can start and stop the program at any time, so it is perfect for people with busy schedules. We also have a 100% money back guarantee for greater peace of mind.
