Useful Information

  • In Cyprus, drink-driving offences are regulated under the Criminal Code (Cap. 154), which deems it illegal to drive under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or other related substances. 
  • The laws are strictly enforced, with specific blood alcohol content (BAC) limits set to ensure road safety and reduce the risk of accidents caused by impaired driving. 
  • The legal BAC limit for drivers in Cyprus is set at 0.05% for general drivers, with a zero-tolerance policy (0.02% BAC limit) for novice and professional drivers. This approach aims to promote road safety and deter drink-driving.
  • Penalties for exceeding the legal BAC limit can include fines, licence suspension, and possible imprisonment. 
  • In cases where an individual causes an accident while under the influence, the penalties can be more severe, including significant fines, lengthy licence suspension, and imprisonment. 
  • Refusal to cooperate with police during a breathalyser test can lead to severe consequences, such as licence suspension and fines
