What Happens If I Get a DUI Driving Someone Else’s Car?

You face the same charges and penalties whether you were driving your own car or someone else’s car if you were arrested for a DUI.

The owner of the vehicle may face some complications though, so you’ll have some explaining to do. The owner could face civil charges if you caused an accident and they can be prosecuted if it’s proven they knew you were intoxicated when you took their car.

Plus, there are other legal issues surrounding if you were insured to drive their vehicle, whether or not they let you use it, and so on.
