One of the many questions you – and our clients – ask about Driving Under The Influence (DUI) is: Can DUI conviction be expunged in Washington State?
What Is Expungement?
It refers to the process of asking the court to remove an arrest or conviction from your criminal record.
Can DUI be expunged in Washington State?
The answer is no. In section 9.96.060 of the Revised Code of Washington specifically prohibits a DUI conviction to be vacated or expunged. You cannot expunge or vacate a DUI from your record in Washington State.
