How Long Does a DUI Stay on Your Record?

When you are facing or have already received a DUI conviction, you may be wondering how long that DUI will stay on your record. The answer ultimately depends on what state you live in and whether or not a DUI is considered a criminal offense.

DUI Conviction on Your Driving Record

In most states, a DUI conviction will stay on your record for a minimum of 10 years. However, Tennessee will keep a DUI conviction on your record for your entire lifetime, and California recently updated its laws to expunge DUIs from driving records after 10 years. Since your results may vary, it is important to check the specific state in which you live. If you received a DUI outside of your home state and are wondering which length of time the conviction will stay on your record, an experienced DUI attorney in your state will be able to help you.

How Long Does a DUI Stay on Your Record in Florida?

While most states keep a DUI on your record for a minimum of ten years, Florida will keep a DUI conviction on your record for 75 years. The Sunshine State will not allow any DUI convictions to be expunged.
