What Is the Difference Between DUI & DWI in Florida?

In Florida, the terms “DUI” and “DWI” are used interchangeably. Both refer to the criminal offense of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The state does not differentiate between driving under the influence of alcohol and driving under the influence of drugs. If you are found to be operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher, you can be charged with DUI. If you are found to be driving under the influence of drugs, you can also be charged with DUI.
