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
There’s no denying that an alcohol-related conviction on your driving record will send you insurance rates through the roof. But the best thing to do is shop around for car insurance with a company like Jerry—the no.1 rated insurance app in the App store.
