Question:

Upon being charged for a first DUI offense with BAC of .08 or higher, a VA driver's license will be suspended for ___ days.

A 7
Explaination

If you refuse a breath test or your BAC is .08 or higher while you are driving and law enforcement charges you with driving while under the influence of alcohol/drugs, your driving privilege will be automatically suspended for seven days, for a first offense. If you are _convicted_ of DUI, however, the court and DMV will impose a suspension/revocation and other penalties in addition to the administrative license suspension.
