A Neg 1 reduced from a DUI will count as a prior DUI for 7 years, just as if it were a full fledged DUI. If all 5 of...
My arrest, conviction, and insurance is all in Washington state. I am looking at insurance quotes, and reporting the DUI--do I use the date of the arrest, or the date of the conviction (well over a year later)? Thank you for the help.
Use the date of the arrest unless it asks for the date of the conviction.
