Hi there country b is right it is an misdeed depending on the arrest it could be from a fine and penalty points to prison. Jock Source(s): documenteries
A person who drives or attempts to drive a mechanically propelled vehicle doing a tour or other public place while unfit to drive through drink or drugs commits an offence:

CountryBoy has given the correct quotation to the Road Traffic Act 1988. That defines the offence but it doesn't offer the penalty. This is in reality the main Act in force on motoring offence. The punishment is given in a completely different Act - the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988. The list of punishments is given contained by Schedule 2 to that Act http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1988… and for this offence, the maximum penalty is 6 months detention, a fine at level 5 on the standard scale (which is currently lb5,000 http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1982… ), or both.

It is also compulsory to receive a period of disqualification from driving (this is not stated in the Act but as this is an compulsory disqualification, it will be for at least a year http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1988… unless the court thinks that a shorter length is appropriate) and your licence would be endorsed with offence DR80 and between 3 and 11 cost points (I got that from the booklet of notes that come with my driving licence). The endorsement will stay on your licence for 11 years from the date of the conviction.

Schedule 2 to RTOA 1988 also prescribes that the resentment will be tried summarily. This means that it will go past a magistrates' court but will not go before a consider and jury in the Crown Court. The maximum penalty of 6 months' custody and a lb5,000 fine is in fact the maximum that a magistrates' court can be in somebody`s space.
