How does a DUI affect my insurance?

The simple answer is it costs more for at least three years.

When you get a DUI, a copy of the DUI arrest and/or your conviction goes on your driving record. Your driving record is what insurance companies look at when they give you a quote. A DUI places you in a higher risk category which increases the amount you pay for insurance.

In addition, you will be required to purchase an SR-22 policy.  SR-22 is a statement of financial responsibility that serves as proof that you have the proper amount of insurance. The SR-22 is an additional expense over and above your regular insurance rate. The SR-22 is necessary for any car you drive!!

If you do not pay for, or carry the SR-22 for the specified period of time the State will suspend your license and registration. You will also incur additional financial penalties.
