Blood Alcohol Limits VIC

In Victoria, the general blood alcohol limit is 0.05%. Those holding learner’s permits, probationary licenses, and those holding professional driver’s licenses because they earn their living from driving public utility vehicles have a 0.0% blood alcohol limit.

A driver subject to a 0.0% blood alcohol limit, if apprehended with a BAC of less than 0.05% will be found guilty of a drink driving offense. If his BAC is higher than 0.05 but less than 0.07%, it is a separate drink driving offense. Drivers holding full licenses and subject to a blood alcohol limit of 0.05%, if apprehended while their BAC is higher than 0.05% but less than 0.07% will be charged with a separate drink driving offense.

All drivers (regardless of the type of license they hold) if apprehended while their BAC is higher than 0.07% but lower than 0.15%, it is a separate drink driving offense. All drivers apprehended while their BAC is higher than 0.15% will be charged with an indictable offense of drink driving.
