How long does a DUI stay on my record?
A DUI, DWI, or OVWI can stay on your record for different amount of times depending on where you live and where you received it. For example, in some states it may stay on your record for 3 years, while in others it lasts 5 years. In California, it can affect your insurance pricing for 10 years, but more severely in the first 3 years.
If you move from one state to another, it can be more complex. For example, if you have a DUI where it only affects your insurance for 3 years, but you move to a state with a 5 year look back, it may be transferred to your driving record.
Keep in mind that other types of alcohol-related convictions can have a different affect on your driving record.
