How long will my DUI stay on my MVR in the state of Ohio?


Being convicted of a first time DUI in Ohio comes with the following penalties:

  • Administrative License Suspension (ALS) for a prohibited BAC;
  • ALS for test refusal = one year license suspension;
  • Jail - Minimum of three consecutive days or 3-day driver intervention program;
  • Fine - Minimum $200 and not more than $1,000;
  • Court License Suspension - 6 months to 3 years.

According to the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) there is no section of the Ohio Revised Code (ORC) that states convictions ever come off of a driver record. However, an administrative decision is in effect that allows for Driver Abstracts to only reflect the last three years driver record activity.

So it would appear that a DUI conviction will remain on your OH driving record indefinitely but you can check with the BMV to fine out for certain.
