How a DUI/DWI Criminal Record Affects Your Driving Privileges

Each time you receive a DWI charge, you also receive a negative mark in your driving record. The negative marks on your driving record are there for a minimum of 10 years, and can affect your driving privileges and career/job options.

Ways in which a DUI criminal record can affect your driving privileges

License suspension: Your driver’s license may be revoked or suspended.

Restricted driving: You may have to restrict your driving. For example, you may be allowed only to drive to and from your job location.

Probation period: You may face probation, where all your driving movements are closely observed.

High insurance rates: When car insurance companies look into your driving record, they may asses you as a risky driver and charge more or even refuse your auto insurance request.

Other ways in which a DUI record can affect you:

  • A DUI criminal record can affect career opportunities.
  • You may not be able to rent a house in some areas, because their policies do not allow tenants with criminal history.
  • This DUI criminal record is also considered when you apply for health, life, and home insurance.
