A DWI means “Driving While Intoxicated” or “Driving While Impaired” and refers to the act of driving while drunk or on drugs. A DUI refers to “Driving Under the Influence.” These essentially mean the same thing in New Hampshire.

Driving under the influence (DUI) is the offense of driving, operating, or being in control of a vehicle while impaired by alcohol or other drugs (including recreational drugs and those prescribed by physicians), to a level that renders the driver incapable of operating a motor vehicle safely.

In New Hampshire law, both DUI and DWI are the same thing, and they mean driving under influence of intoxicating substances.

Driving under influence offense can occur in two ways:

  • if the driver is operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or any drug or substance that alters perception.
  • If the driver’s blood alcohol is .08 BAC of greater for those over the age of 21.
