What are the future effects of a DUI/DWI conviction?

When many people think about the consequences of a DUI or DWI conviction, they think about jail time, fines and license suspension. However, those are not the only negative consequences of getting a DUI. It can also have a negative effect on your personal life.

It Can Make it Harder to get a Job

In most companies, employers will do a background check on you prior to hiring you. If you have a DUI on your record, then it may be harder for you to get a job. You may also lose your current job if it requires  you to drive a vehicle.

Higher Auto Insurance

You may not lose your license after getting a DUI. However, you will probably have to pay more for your car insurance. You are considered a high-risk driver if you have a DUI on your record. High-risk drivers spend more on their car insurance.

It may be Harder to Continue Your Education
