Important Update. The Law in Tennessee has recently changed regarding this statute. Stay tuned for an updated entry on the new law.
If someone under the age of 21 is convicted for DWI in Tennessee, they face a fine, possible community service work, and a one-year license revocation. Someone charged with DWI in Tennessee may qualify for a pretrial diversion program, which might allow them to resolve their case without having a permanent conviction entered against them and with the opportunity to have that charge expunged.
It is important to note, however, that persons under 21 may also be charged with DUI in Tennessee and face the same punishments as those over 21.
