DUI TestDriving under the influence (DUI) is a serious offense. When you are behind the wheel and intoxicated, you are a threat to yourself and everyone around you, which is why the consequences of getting caught are so severe. Fortunately, there is life after a DUI, if you follow the tips outlined below.

Find a DUI Attorney

There are all types of lawyers, but it's in your best interest to find an attorney who specifically handles DUI cases. He or she will be well-versed in the laws surrounding DUI charges, and therefore may be able to get your charges reduced so that you don't have to suffer the full force of the DUI consequences. Some of the punishments and penalties imposed when convicted of a DUI offense include:
  • Going to jail
  • Fines
  • Prevention programs
  • Rehabilitation
  • Probation
  • Loss of license
With the penalties for a DUI being so steep, it's best for you to attempt to avoid them by employing a DUI lawyer.

Follow the Court Order

Presenting yourself before the judge is your top priority before going to court. After sentencing, your main priority shifts to carrying out the terms of your sentence. Avoid behaviors that challenge the court order. You don't need extra attention, nor do you want to face jail time if it wasn't included in the order. By following the court order, you are closer to getting your license back.

Maintain Your Auto Insurance

Although you may not be able to drive, you will still need to maintain your car insurance because you have a license. Additionally, if your court order requires you to purchase an SR-22 certificate, you will need to inform your auto insurance company. They will provide the certification for you at a nominal fee and inform the appropriate authorities that they are covering you.

Getting Your License Back

After you have fulfilled all of the requirements of the court order and you've maintained car insurance, then it's time for you to get your license reinstated. By providing the DMV with proof that you have insurance, an SR-22 certificate and proof you've paid your fees, you can start the process of getting your license restored.

A DUI is a serious offense and you should try every measure possible to avoid the conviction. If you cannot avoid the conviction, then you must ensure that you don't violate your court order; otherwise, you run the risk of never driving again.
