You cannot expunge driving history. It will all fall off after seven years. Points fall off every two years.
Great question. Quite common. Note that driving records usually fall under a different branch of government than the brand that handles cases in court, which is where expungments are usually handled. The executive branch oversees administrative organizations, which is the type of organization that controls your driving record. Government administrative organizations still have rules but different than in court, so this is why the expungement you are thinking of is not the same for your driving record.
No. The charges never fall off; not even after 7 years. Most insurance companies will not be able to look back more than 7 years, but courts, police, and the government will always be able to see your fill record which will show all of the driving infractions on your driving history. Points do come off after 2 years.
