First and second offense Vermont DUIs not involving fatalities or serious bodily injury are typically charged as misdemeanor level offenses.

A misdemeanor offense in Vermont is defined as an offense whose maximum potential penalty is 2 years in jail or less.

Third and subsequent DUIs are felonies in Vermont.
