Is DUI a Felony?

In Pennsylvania, DUI is considered a misdemeanor. The only time a DUI is a felony is when other criminal activity accompanies the DUI (such as vehicular homicide) or if there are other extenuating circumstances. For the majority of people, DUI is a misdemeanor charge but is still considered severe, and if convicted, comes with stiff penalties. For more information, refer to the state of Pennsylvania’s driver’s manual.
