What Is The Persistent Drunk Driver Designation?

Colorado has created a separate designation for certain people accused of DUI called Persistent Drunk Driver (PDD). If the Colorado DMV designates you as a Persistent Drunk Driver it may be more difficult to get your driver’s license back. Colorado Revised Statute 42-1-102 states that you may be declared a Persistent Drunk Driver if any of these conditions apply:

  1. You have been convicted of or had your driver’s license revoked for two or more alcohol-related driving violations (DUI or DWAI).
  2. You get caught driving under an alcohol-related restraint (DUR-ALC).
  3. You have a DUI with a BAC greater than .15 within two hours of driving.
