What is the blood alcohol content (BAC) limit in Missouri for driving while intoxicated?

A person arrested for driving with a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or higher is processed administratively as well as criminally. Minors arrested or stopped with .020% or more blood alcohol content are also subject to the administrative sanctions under section 302.500 through 302.540.

The arresting officer completes and sends information to the Department of Revenue, including the following.

  1. Alcohol Influence Report form (AIR).
  2. Missouri Uniform Complaint and Summons, or warrant, if applicable.
  3. Notice of Suspension/Revocation of Driving Privilege and Temporary 15-Day Driving Permit (this will only be issued if the individual’s license is taken).
  4. Missouri Driver License, if secured.
