I think you are misunderstanding the way criminal records read. As I stated before, if you took a conviction on the ticket it will show on your record that you have been convicted of that violation. Typically the record will not specify that you were arrested. However, because you were arrested, it is certainly possible.

If the DWI arrest was expunged correctly, I would expect your arrest record to be clean, however the Class C ticket would still appear as a citation issued.

The traffic violation would show up on the driving record, as a fine was paid instead of a deferment fee or special assessment which would indicate that the traffic violation was deferred and subject to the same expunction as the DWI arrest after dismissal.
