Tennessee DUI Breath Tests
If you are pulled over in Tennessee for suspicion of drunk driving or DUI drugs, you will be asked to take a DUI breath test. This is done through a portable DUI breath tester, sometimes called a breathalyzer. A breath test machine shows the officer your blood alcohol content level, or BAC level. In Tennessee, you face DUI arrest if your BAC is 0.08% or higher. This percentage only applies to non-commercial drivers over 21 years of age.
If you are under 21, you will be arrested for DUI if your BAC is 0.02% or higher. If you hold a commercial driver’s license, or Tennessee CDL, you will be arrested for DUI if your blood alcohol content is 0.04% or higher.

Our top-rated Tennessee DUI lawyers are not intimidated by high BAC results, so do not plead guilty before you talk to us.
