A DUI Conviction Has Many Criminal And Noncriminal Consequences

Having a DUI conviction on your record comes with additional consequences beyond the hefty fines, suspension of your driver’s license, and potential jail time. On this page, our attorneys at Chieppor & Egner LLC have summarized some of the effects a DUI charge might have on your criminal history and your future:

  • You’ll have to explain your conviction and punishment to current and potential employers.
  • You could receive an increase in auto insurance premiums – or in some situations, you could be dropped by your insurance provider.
  • You may have trouble renting a car.
  • You might experience trouble in obtaining your pilot’s license.
  • You will likely incur points on your driver’s license.
  • You may face international travel restrictions.
  • You may not be allowed to enter or immigrate to certain countries if you are a DUI offender.
  • You could hurt your chances of gaining admission to certain educational programs or scholarship opportunities with a DUI conviction.
  • Your finances might be impacted by exorbitant expenses.
  • You may have difficulty maintaining or renewing your driver’s license.
  • Your ability to become or remain a licensed professional may be impaired.
