The National Trial Lawyers AIOCLA 2015 10 Best NAFDD 2nd Consecutive Year DUI Attorney


Will my new DUI charges show on a background check?

Question: ”I was recently pulled over, blew 0.18%, and released the next day. I am about to get hired for a new job next week. How long does it take for a DUI to show on your record/background check? Will it show up right away, or after you go to court?”

Answer: The DUI will not be visible as a conviction on your record, as you have not suffered a conviction. With respect to an open case, it is very unlikely that the district attorney has even received a report to review for filing yet. However, depending on the scope of the background check, if there in one pending, the may be visible already. Consult with an experienced DUI defense attorney, as proceeding with a public defender will not help you in dealing with your driver license issues. Remember, with respect to setting a DMV hearing, time is of the essence, and it must be requested within 10 days of your arrest.
