It’s great that you’re trying to clear your driving record! In the state of California, you’ll get two points on your driving record for every DUI conviction. Unlike other states, California won’t increase the number of points with each conviction. If you get four points or more within a 12-month period, however, your license will be suspended.
However, the bad news is that you won’t be able to get the charge removed from your record. DUIs will typically stay on your driving record for 10 years to life in California, and there is no legal way to remove them.
If you haven’t been convicted yet, consider getting a lawyer to help you reduce the charge or even avoid it altogether.
DUIs also cause a huge increase in insurance rates. Luckily, the Jerry app makes it quick and easy to find the best rates available on the coverage you need—no long forms or phone calls necessary!
Hope that helps!
