The Consequences of a DUI/DWI Conviction in Alabama

Will I go to jail? Will I lose my license? Will I lose my job? These are some of the most common questions people ask when they have been arrested for drunk driving and call Ingram Law.

Jail time depends on many factors, including your blood alcohol levels, whether or not you have had prior DUI convictions, and whether or not anyone was injured.

The consequences of a DUI/DWI conviction can be serious and include:

  • Jail time/incarceration
  • Administrative license suspension or revocation
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device
  • Impoundment of your car or truck
  • Mandatory alcohol assessment/treatment
  • Increased insurance rates/ canceled insurance

Under Alabama law, the Department of Transportation will automatically suspend your driver license upon notification of an arrest. However, Ingram Law can file a civil complaint to ask for a temporary reinstatement while your case is pending.

How Long Does a DUI Stay on Your Record in Alabama?

According to Alabama law, a DUI conviction will remain on your criminal record for the rest of your life as they cannot be expunged. However, a DUI will only stay on your driver's record for 5-years, meaning a second DUI conviction after 5-years could be treated as a first-time DUI.
