Question: How long does a DWI stay on your record?
In Texas, a DWI will stay on your record forever. When I say forever, I mean for as long as you live. The DWI number of years ago can only be used for enhancement purposes for 10 years.
Today, they can go back forever to enhance a subsequent DWI. It’s real important, if you’re charged with a DWI, to do what you can to get the case either dismissed or win at trial because it will stay on your record forever.
