How long Does a record of arrest for a traffic violation with DUI remain on ones record?
A DUI conviction is not eligible to be vacated under RCW 9.96.060. Therefore, a DUI will remain on your record indefinitely. However, for purposes of prior DUI convictions it can only be used for seven years. In other words, if you are charged with new DUI and your first DUI falls within seven years of the new charge, the first DUI will be counted as a prior offense and you will be sentenced under the 2nd DUI offender guidelines. This also applies to a 3rd offense. It is a class C felony if you have four prior DUIs within a ten year period.See question
