Does a DUI Affect Buying a Car?

Car dealers do not care how bad a driver is when selling cars. They sell to both good and bad drivers, even to DUI drivers. When buying a car, you’ll be asked to provide a document for identification. If your driving license has been suspended, you may provide an ID or a passport and easily get through in the car buying process.

The problems may arise when you need to start using the car. You’ll need car insurance, which might be two to three times more expensive for DUI drivers compared to drivers who have never been caught driving drunk. Insurance costs vary by state. For example if full coverage in Kansas is around $130 a month, in Florida it’s more like $230.

More expensive cars usually have higher insurance rates and you might want to check wht the insurance would be for the car you want if you have a DUI on your record.
