How Long Does a DUI Stay on a Driver's License?

After a conviction of a DUI arrest, one of the immediate consequences to be expected is to have driving privileges suspended. The amount of time in which a driver’s license is suspended will depend on various factors, such as the blood alcohol content level and whether this particular instance is a first offense. However, regardless of the term in which a license is suspended, a DUI on a driver’s license record will also have further ramifications. 
How long DUI on driver’s license stays on record may vary depending on the state laws and statutes. States will prove to have different legislation in regard to a DUI on a driver’s license record. Generally speaking, a DUI on a driver’s license record will stay on file for a period of ten years. 
This record can have several consequences of its own, for the ten year period itself acts a probationary period. During this time, any subsequent DUI charge will incur more severe penalties. Furthermore, a DUI on a driver’s license may also have an impact auto insurance as well, affecting insurance rates and even the ability to be insured by certain companies. It is important to be aware of the state’s stance regarding a DUI on a driver’s license, for they will vary. For example, in the state of Alaska, a DUI on a driver’s license will remain on record forever.
