How long will a DWI arrest stay on my record and will it effect my automobile insurance rates ?

“It depends” and “absolutely”! If a person receives a final conviction for DWI it will always remain on her record. Our expunction law does, however, allow for the destruction of arrest records if a number of very specific conditions are met. Unfortunately, the records relating to a driver’s license suspension or revocation are not subject to expunction, even though the arrest records may be expunged. In reference to insurance rates, if you receive a DWI conviction, the great likelihood is that your insurance rate will at least quadruple.
