UK Driving Limits

UK Driving Limits

For vehicles operated on a normal driving license:Blood Alcohol Concentrations (BAC) - 80 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres, 80mg/ml, 080 on mg/100ml display or 0.08 %BAC, 0.8 Promille

Breath Alcohol Concentrations (BrAC) - 35 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath BrAC

For professional drivers and operatives:Under the new Railways Transportation Safety Bill the UK Government have now introduced new limits for those working in the Transport Industry.

The new limit is just 0.02%BAC - one quarter the UK Drink-Drive limit of 0.08%BAC and the lowest detectable level possible.

The new rules apply to Pilots, Cabin Crew, Air Traffic Controllers, Aircraft Engineers, Train Drivers, and Commercial Seamen

Blood Alcohol Levels - 20 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres, displayed as 020 on a mg/100ml unit, 0.02 %BAC, or 0.2 Promille (g/dl or g/100ml)

Breath Alcohol levels - 9 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath (BrAC)

EU Driving Limits for normal driving license

This page was last updated on 15/3/13.
For the most up to date information check with the country you are visiting.

The european levels differ from country to country and are generally much lower than the UK's. Some operate a zero tolerance eg Estonia, Hungary, Slovakia

Most breathalyzer kits and digital breathalysers sold in UK display in % BAC

So this means that:
0.2 g/l is same as 0.02 %BAC
0.5 g/l is same as 0.05 %BAC
0.8 g/l is same as 0.08 %BAC
