Receiving a DUI means most States can suspend your license for a period of 30 days or more. In addition to spending thousands of dollars in attorney fees, court costs and vehicle recovery fees, you may be required to have a breathalyzer installed in your vehicle and required to obtain an SR22 filing. SR22 is a financial responsibility form filed by your insurance company. SR22 filing period varies from State to State, it could be 6 months or several years of SR22 requirement during which you are to maintain insurance on all vehicles owned.
After a DUI conviction, you may be deemed a high risk by some insurance companies which then could choose not to renew your auto insurance policy. Your insurance rates can also increase after a DUI conviction for a period of three to five years. If you receive more than one driving under influence, it could turn into a felony conviction and potentially having your license suspended for life. In other words, DUI’s are really costly and best is not to drink and drive.
