Does a DWI Stay on Your Record After it is Dismissed in Texas?

If your attorney is able to have your DWI case dismissed, your record will not show a DWI conviction. However, if you do not obtain a Final Order of Expunction, your record will reflect that you were arrested and charged for DWI.

The Texas Department of Public Safety is the custodian of criminal records in Texas. Law enforcement agencies and County Clerk offices have a duty to report your arrest and the actions taken by the court on your DWI case. Private Background Check companies refer to records kept by the Texas Department of Public Safety when reporting your criminal history.

When your DWI case is dismissed, you need to consult with your attorney about your eligibility for an Expunction and any possible waiting periods.
