How long will a DUI stay on my driving record in Maryland?
I have a DUI conviction on my Maryland driving record from a few years ago, and I’m sick of paying an insane premium for my car! How long will it be on my record and affect my insurance?

I can imagine that paying hundreds of extra per month for car insurance is frustrating! In Maryland, a DUI conviction stays on your record for life.
If you’re convicted of driving under the influence, you can also have your license suspended or restricted. While these offenses cannot be removed from your driving record, the points associated with them will expire after two years.
Along with increasing your insurance rates, there are other potential consequences to having a DUI on your driving record:
- License revocation
- Ignition interlock device (IID) (depends on the number of prior convictions)
- Background checks
