How long will a DUI stay on my driving record in Iowa?
I have a DUI conviction on my driving record from when I was 24. I’m searching for a new insurance policy almost 10 years later and wondering if the charge will still affect my rates. How long does a DUI stay on your record in Iowa?
Answer provided by
Drunk driving is a serious crime that kills thousands of people each year. While the penalties differ for drunk driving between states, a DUI in Iowa will stay on your driving record for 12 years after the conviction.
With a DUI conviction on your Iowa driving record, you can also expect to pay substantially higher insurance premiums. But that’s not the only consequence you’ll face. You may also be subject to:
- License revocation
- Ignition interlock device
- Background checks
