DUI Convictions Stay on Your Record for 10 Years
In Pennsylvania, convictions for drunk driving, driving under the influence of drugs or DUI stay on your drivers’ record for a minimum of ten years. During this time you can expect to pay a great deal more for your car insurance than you did before your arrest. If convicted, your current insurance may opt for cancellation of your auto insurance, a non-renewal of your policy, or choose to charge you significantly more for coverage.
In addition, there are some insurance companies that simply do not insure people with DUI. In these cases, you will most likely have to seek insurance through a non-premium company catering to “high-risk” drivers at equally high prices. You must have an insurance carrier in order to regain your drivers’ license.
A DUI conviction can raise your car insurance premiums sky-high. Call us at (412) 281-3380 today for experienced DUI defense.
