Q: How much time does it take for a DUI misdemeanor to be erased from your record for the purpose of applying for a job?

Itrs a question of the kind of job you are applying for. If it is a government position, you might find your DUI charge to be an obstacle. Nevertheless, some places are more strict than others and will pay attention to every detail in your past. DUI records in most states hold for 7 years. At the end of 7 years’ time, it is as if you have turned off a new leaf. Of course during those 7 years your record must be kept clean.

Q: Can I join the police force in my town if there is a DUI charge standing against me?

Formally speaking, you can become a police officer even if you have been charged with DUI. Practically speaking, it is almost impossible. Police departments give priority to candidates with a clean record. I would advise you to postpone your application and wait 7 years till your charges come off your record. Keep your affairs clean and stay away of your vehicle if you drank alcohol regardless of your career aspirations.
