A DUI can be on your record for quite a while. Here is an example of a DUI first on Jan 1, 2017, and DUI second on Dec 1, 2017. It’s a second because they stack on each other in a year. If there’s a DUI on Jan 1, 2017 and one more Jan 1, 2015, then the 2025 DUI is looked upon as a first. it’s because DUIs are on your record for 5 years. They haven’t disappeared in that there’s a record of them and an enquiry will find it. But after 5 years, your car insurance is no longer impacted. DUIs can be gotten rid of after 5 years if you meet a certain stipulations. In that case, the DUIs will no longer be on your record.

Here’s a helpful tip. If you see a police checkpoint, don’t pull off the road. It gives the cops reasonable suspicion. A side road or apartment complex is OK to drive into. Otherwise, you have to go through checkpoint. Have your license, registration and proof of insurance ready when you enter. Open the window just enough to give them the documentation. Then the cop doesn’t have his head in the car trying to smell booze or pot. Talk as little as is needed. If he says “good evening”, nod your head and then they can’t bring up slurred speech. Hopefully you haven’t had a drink, but another person could leave something in your car. You don’t want the cop shining his flashlight in your auto looking for stuff.
