California Vehicle Code 13555

Priorability – California Vehicle Code § 13555

It is also important to know that under California Vehicle Code § 13555, a DUI conviction will still be used against you for priorability purposes. This means that once the expungement is granted, it can still be used against you if you’re arrested and charged with a DUI within 10 years of the date you were arrested for your prior DUI conviction.

Furthermore, an individual must disclose the conviction if asked on an application for public office, for licensure by any state or local agency, or for contracting with the California State Lottery Commission. But, once expunged these disclosures can’t be held against the individual applying.
