VEHICLE CODE : SECTION 23140-23144

23140. (a) It is unlawful for a person under the age of 21 years

who has 0.05 percent or more, by weight, of alcohol in his or her

blood to drive a vehicle.

(b) A person may be found to be in violation of subdivision (a) if

the person was, at the time of driving, under the age of 21 years

and under the influence of, or affected by, an alcoholic beverage

regardless of whether a chemical test was made to determine that

person's blood-alcohol concentration and if the trier of fact finds

that the person had consumed an alcoholic beverage and was driving a

vehicle while having a concentration of 0.05 percent or more, by

weight, of alcohol in his or her blood.

(c) Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, upon a

finding that a person has violated this section, the clerk of the

after the finding and immediately forward to the department an

abstract of the record of the court in which the finding is made.

That abstract shall be a public record and available for public

inspection in the same manner as other records reported under Section

1803.
