New Jersey categorizes DUI/DWI as a traffic offense rather than a criminal offense, and expungement is the act of removing the record of a criminal offense.
Your DUI/DWI conviction is not eligible for expungement, and will live on in your driving abstract.
This can have significant consequences for you later in life.
Insurance rates for your car may remain elevated for years, and many carriers will refuse to cover you.
Attempting to travel internationally may also be affected, which can negatively impact your career.
Some countries refuse to allow entry to those with DUI convictions.
It may still be possible to take steps after the fact to address a past DUI conviction as a minor.
